Overview

About the property

Three bedroom, 2 and half bath and located in a rural area.

The Dutch Barn is located about 2 miles East of Middleburg on a quiet country lane off State RT 50 and in the heart of Virginia's hunt country. The previous owner developed and used it as a small horse breeding operation and there are now 6 indoor stalls (of which 4 are available to guests, including an indoor wash station), a run-in shed, paddock, exercise ring and riding area. It is an excellent place to bring your horse(s) as there is plenty of opportunity to ride on the property, the scenic rural road and beyond.

The family owned farm house is connected to the stables, covers about 3,000 square feet of living space including 3 bedrooms, a great room including living, dining and kitchen, TV room, exercise room, and a reading room. All are tastefully decorated with a worldwide collection of antiques, arts and crafts. There are 2 full bathrooms, one having an indoor Jaccuzzi bathtub as well as a half bath in the reading room. All rooms are comfortably outfitted with plenty of closet space. There are quality linens and towels and everything is neat and clean. A large deck with a 6 person's spa (open from spring into fall) overlooks the Bull Run Mountains. At the bottom of the property is a farm pond with a swing bench. There is lots of open space to feel relaxed and it is all quiet and restful. There also is plenty of parking space, including for horse trailers.

The town of Middleburg is very charming to explore. The town itself has some renowned restaurants including Red Fox Inn, The French Hound and Julien's, the world class Salamander Resort and Spa, several boutiques, antique stores and a Safeway supermarket. Also the National Sporting Library is here and worth a visit. Within a mile distance you will find a Polo field and a high end horse riding facility and historic Aldie Mill and Oatlands are nearby. Many trips can be made to explore the hilly rustic country side with lots of beautiful properties where horses are kept. Other attractions are the many wineries, the State Arboretum of Virginia, the Skyline drive, Blue Ridge Mountains, and Luray Caverns.

Washington D.C. is about 45 miles away and Dulles International Airport about 20 miles or less than half an hour drive. Part of the Smithonian Air and Space Museum (Udvar-Hazy Center) showing the larger planes and space vehicles (including space shuttle Discovery), is located near the airport.

All in all enough to do and see to make this property your home away from home.

About Jan & Ina Pruntel

We are a retired couple and grew up in The Netherlands. We came to the Washington area in 1982 to join an international development bank and traveled extensively in Asia, Africa and South America. We decided to retire in the beautiful Middleburg area and live now close to the rental property.

Jan & Ina Pruntel purchased this farmhouse in 1985

Comfortable, Peaceful, Interesting, beautiful landscaping

  • 4 of 5

House was very spacious, comfortable and well decorated. Landscaping and views from windows were beautiful. Owners were also nice and accommodating. They helped to obtain a pack & play for our toddler before we arrived. The house was extremely clean and fresh, though keep in mind it is a farm and occasionally rented by horse owners. Middleburg was gorgeous and very historic, as well as the surrounding areas. Not for fans of fast food and super stores - none are available within 10-15 miles.

Owner's Response: Thank you Carter for your review. We wonder why you mentioned that "one should be aware that the house is occasionally rented to horse owners"? And just for the record: there are several new and good restaurants, supermarkets and a Walmart super store in South Riding just about 10 miles away.

Beautiful Grounds and Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Dutch Barn! It was way more spacious than we anticipated and very comfortable. Perfect for a wedding weekend, but wishing we could have stayed to enjoy the home longer. Checking in/out were extremely easy. My only complaint is all the towels smelled mildewy. Would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Melanie and sorry to hear that the smell of the towels was not to your liking. Most had been machine washed just a few days ago and we cannot really explain why they smelled as you described. Possibly it is the well water that we use that is not chlorinated and may smell different from city water.

Great property, plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and had a very nice time. The house had plenty of space (inside and out!) and was well equipped. Beds were comfortable. Jan and Ina were friendly and helpful. The fire was great - Jan and Ina had it set up so we only needed to set it alight. Thanks very much Jan and Ina. We recommend this house to anyone visiting the Middleburg area.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was in the perfect location - accessible to many wineries, great shopping and yummy food. The home was super clean, spacious and wonderful for our girls weekend. Jan and Ina were very accommodating and gave us a quick 5 minutes tour upon arrival. We would love to come back!! Thanks for sharing your home.

Quiet and clean

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was great. The house was very clean and spacious. I love how close we were to several wineries. I wish the weather was a little nicer and warmer for us to have enjoyed the outside of the property more! I would definitely recommend and come back.
