The former Bernard Arnault Estate of 4500-acres located along Blenheim Road a historic route in Southern Albemarle County and home to Monticello, Ashlawn Highland, Trump Winery, Dave Matthews' Blenheim Vineyards, Grace Vineyard and Steve Case's Early Mountain Vineyard has undergone an almost two-decade transformation by its current owners. Surrounded by large country estates and wineries, Mount Ida Reserve stands out not only due to its sheer scale roughly three times larger than nearby Trump Winery & Estate but also from its unique inventory of physical features including miles of private river frontage, spectacular mountain views, rolling hills, fertile farmland, hardwood forests and the largest privately owned lake in Virginia with its own island. The current stewards have invested nearly $100M in developing the grandest of estates with virtually every amenity. The entire property is connected with high speed fiberoptic capability and offers two completely renovated historic manors and one recently constructed mansion of 12,000 sq. ft., two eight stall stables, two tennis courts, an inground pool, two lane go cart track, 180' water slide, several beaches, a lake house, a grand 5,000 sq. ft lake pavilion, two floating dock marinas and miles of fencing and paved and unpaved trails for horses, ATV's, bicycling or walking. Perfectly appointed for fishing, hunting, watersports and land sports and grand family entertaining. The property also boasts several award-winning facilities including a spectacular 12,000 sq. ft Lodge developed around a 100-year-old stable. Designed with events in mind, the stone and cedar clad Lodge has state of the art amenities including full caterers’ kitchen, two large event spaces fully climate controlled with spectacular outdoor spaces. Yet another event facility the newly constructed 10,000 sq. ft Event Barn offers a 25' stone fireplace to complement its two beautifully appointed banquet rooms, all climate controlled with full catering facilities. A third event facility the recently completed Red Barn, is an 8,000 sq. ft fully designed event space with a 35' observation tower. Climate controlled with caterer’s kitchen and an adjoining 5,000 sq. ft lake pavilion; the Water’s Edge event space is truly remarkable. To compliment the event spaces there is an awe inspiring 12,000 sq. ft cedar and stone clad tasting room complete with a full-service restaurant for 250. The facility includes an award winning 15- barrel craft brewery which utilizes barley from the nearby seven-acre barley field. An oversized outdoor fireplace with waterfalls and stone walls, bluestone walkways and an observation deck make Mount Ida the most popular of Virginia wineries and breweries. An adjacent 20-acre vineyard (with an additional 150 acres prepared for vineyard expansion allowing for the largest vineyard in Virginia) creates an enchanting setting for guests. The property also includes a portfolio of 26 single family rental properties strategically developed by the owners around the perimeter of the property. A 20,000 sq. ft shop, multiple carriage houses, barns and outbuildings, 15 miles of paved roads, 25 miles of board fencing, 10 diesel backup generators, 25 springs and multiple automated wrought iron gated entrances help service and secure the property. The owners have spared no expense investing in infrastructure covering the entire 4500 aces including miles of underground power, high speed fiber optics, roads, bridges and concrete dams for the 20 lakes on the property. The income producing estate is perfect for a family compound, corporate retreat, flagship corporate campus or long-term investment. Alternatively, the property is a prime candidate for a conservation and/ or stream impact easement offering significant tax benefits. This incomparable property includes a turnkey opportunity complete with well trained and experienced staff and everything necessary to continue the legacy.
