Just 20 minutes north of Charlottesville and ten minutes from Gordonsville, near the Keswick Hunt Country, lies these extremely private and beautiful 256+/- acres. With two cottages, this property is currently used as a weekend retreat from the fast-paced world of Washington, D.C.
Upon entering the property, you will find yourself surrounded by lovely hardwood trees. As you follow the small, unassuming road deeper into the property, the road opens to a lovely meadow with a 5+ acre lake. Winding past the lake, you will pass a well-contructed three-bay, board and batten garage with custom-made cypress doors. Meandering further down the road you will pass the grey shed, a board and batten workshop, another three bay garage with a guest cottage/office above. The living quarters have floor to ceiling bookcases, a kitchen, a loft and an amazing screened-in porch that makes you feel as if you were in a tree house. Following the little road past the grey shed, it winds its way to the main cottage with a colorful perennial garden.
The main cottage, made of board and batten, offers a spacious family room open to the kitchen. Everyone will love gathering around the large fireplace on those chilly, rainy days. This cottage has two bedrooms, a bath, a nice loft and two screened-in porches. You will love relaxing on the porches watching the wildlife roaming the fields.
This land is all about enjoying nature and all that the outdoors has to offer. The land itself is in 17 tax map parcels and has numerous division rights, which makes it an excellent candidate for a conservation easement. There are approximately 70 acres in open meadows allowing for a perfect wildlife habitat. Hunters will love the abundance of turkey and white-tail deer and fishermen will enjoy the well-stocked lake. The land is suitable for various agricultural pursuits as well. Many well-maintained trails traverse the property for horseback riding, ATVs or just a leisurely stroll through the woods.
If you are looking for seclusion without sacrificing all the conveniences of the city, this property is a must see!
