A Madison County farm with views of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, this 212-acre property is on the doorstep of some of the state’s prettiest scenery but convenient to the amenities and attractions of the Northern Virginia area. It was listed for sale for $1.6 million on May 23, 2017.
Currently in use for crop and cattle farming, the old farmhouse looks out over a landscape of rolling fields, creeks and the tree-topped ridgeline of Shenandoah National Park. This region of central Virginia has garnered acclaim in recent years for a burgeoning wine scene, not to mention a number of new local craft breweries.
Less than two hours from Washington, D.C., the land would serve as an ideal recreational retreat or equestrian estate. The farmhouse, while offering a comfortable, welcoming interior, would benefit from upgrades and modernization to extend the full potential of this tranquil country acreage.
Of course, this part of the world is where founding fathers Thomas Jefferson and James Madison made their homes at Monticello and Montpelier, respectively. The nearby town of Charlottesville, home to the University of Virginia, is brimming with cultural and culinary attractions, while outdoor attractions in the area include biking, canoeing and kayaking and hiking the trails of Shenandoah National Park and local mountains like Old Rag.
An adjacent 43-acre parcel is also available for sale through the same seller.
