This outstanding 50-acre equestrian estate is surrounded by 3000 acres of protected conversation area and has served as an important local and national landmark throughout the years. A semicircular treelined driveway with beautifully crafted stone bridges over a creek serves as the gracious main entrance. This historic 10,000 square foot Georgian-style manor home was designed by acclaimed Virginia architect Milton Grigg, and was constructed out of rose colored sandstone. The elegant interior has been renovated to include formal and informal living spaces ideal for large-scale entertaining as well as comfortable family living. A dramatic two-story foyer leads to a formal dining room with fireplace, large-scale living room, great room, gourmet kitchen, informal dining/morning room and wine room. French doors from most Main Level rooms open to expansive outdoor terraces, breathtaking scenic vistas and mature landscaping. Customized architectural and design details abound and include volume ceilings, elaborate crown moulding and millwork, ornamental wall treatments, exotic wood flooring, nine masonry fireplaces, and multiple sets of exterior French doors with transoms. The two upper levels boast an array of bedrooms and guest quarters and an outstanding master bedroom suite complete with his and her dressing rooms and luxury baths. In addition to the multiple bedrooms is a private office with exquisite bay window views - a haven for contemplation and serenity. As one would expect from such a spectacular equestrian estate, there are multiple out buildings including an historic 4-gabled bank barn, professional 16-stall stable, carriage house with private office, and farm manager housing. The spectacular grounds are further enhanced by specimen plantings, mature trees and water features including a natural spring-fed lake and swimming pool.
