Welcome to this beautiful and historic property located in the Neersville Valley between the majestic Blue Ridge and Short Hill mountains. An admired US Secretary of State owned this property with family members for nearly fifty years as a weekend home and working farm. The peaceful and private get-a-way property encompasses 361 panoramic acres, a primary home, two auxiliary homes (each with three bedrooms), two spring-fed ponds, bank barn, machine shed and multiple run-in sheds. The original stone home dates back to 1792 and has been tastefully renovated to preserve the historic features of the era. The home has an aesthetically appealing, architecturally designed addition providing a large family room, rec room, and multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. The home is in pristine condition and features a true chef’s kitchen with a Viking 6 burner range and grill, Subzero refrigerator, double wall oven, built-in microwave, large island and granite countertops. The kitchen flows into a large light-filled family room with a stone fireplace and built-in bookshelves - which is great for family fun and entertaining. There are three large French doors in the family room that open onto the large screened-in porch that overlooks a pond, pasture fields and mountains. The main level also includes two parlors with fireplaces, a full bathroom, a large mudroom and a spacious laundry room with a wash sink and built-in cabinets. On the upper level there are 6 beautiful bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a sun-filled sitting area with bookshelves. This historic home has antique pine floors, built-in china cabinet, hand-crafted banisters, antique hardware, five fireplaces and two stairways. This property is further complemented by a tennis court, swimming pool, and pool house with a bathroom, game room, and kitchen. This historic site is located on a large parcel of rolling land in a much sought-after part of Virginia, yet within easy reach of our nation’s capital. The Neersville Valley is rapidly becoming well-known for vineyards, wineries, breweries, farm-to-table dining options and weekend getaways. The property is also in close proximity to the hiking trails of the Appalachian Trail and the historic sites of Harpers Ferry National Park and Antietam Battlefield. This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to start their own upscale winery and event center or private retreat. This 361-acre magnificent property is currently divided into 16 parcels which also makes for a great investment or family compound.
