About the Property
sleeps 15, 3.5 bathrooms, 200 acres, private pond, pool & tennis
Gaie Lea means Happy Meadows as translated from old English. The name suits. Built in 1952, Gaie Lea was the dream home for a growing family. Situated at the center of an operational farm, the home remains in the care of the family who grew up inside its walls. The house is big with lots of room to have fun. The yard is big. The pool is big. The farm is big. The view, on the other hand, is absolutely grand.
This is a destination home with 16 rooms, 11 beds, 3.5 bathrooms, 200 acres, a private pond, private pool, private tennis court, and more on-site activities than you can shake a stick at. There's also an optional personal chef (separate fee).
If you're into sight seeing, local attractions include Shakespeare's Blackfriars Playhouse, PLENTY of vineyards, Woodrow Wilson's Birthplace, the American Frontier Culture Museum—and that's just within a ten minute drive. After dark, visit any number of restaurants and bars in downtown Staunton or just crank the volume on our turntable, and dance to Motown until the sun comes up. Be sure to check the bustling cities of Harrisonburg (I-81N, 20min) and Charlottesville (I-64E, 40min) for interesting activity. Check out our website. It's www.gaieleacom.

Year Purchased: 1952
About: Gaie Lea was built during the 1950s as the dream home of a growing family. Lovingly upgraded over the years, Gaie Lea exudes the casual elegance of the swinging 50s. Situated at the center of an operational farm, the home remains in the care of the family who grew up inside its walls. Availability is limited due to frequent family functions and events.
Why Staunton, VA, USA:
While there's an abundance of cultural and outdoor activities within minutes of Gaie Lea, we recommend making time to explore Bells Lane. Our little country road is 3-miles long and quite a popular dog-walking and jogging destination for locals. Even the local high school cross country team trains here!
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Gaie Lea has something for everyone: ping pong, badminton, hike through the fields, canoe and fish in the stocked pond, take a dip in the luscious swimming pool overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains, or play tennis on the home’s private court.
