Enjoy living in one of the most spectacular valleys in Virginia, the Hebron Valley in Madison County with lovely views in every direction. This pristine agricultural locale has an unobstructed view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, especially Old Rag Mountain, which was recently voted by Outside Magazine as one of the top 25 hikes in the world.
The meticulously restored 19th century home is an eye-catcher as you drive along the Hebron Valley Road. Sitting gracefully on its 15+/- acres, you can just imagine relaxing in the spring and summer evenings on one of its many porches while enjoying all the beautiful scenery and nature surrounding you.
Upon entering the home, you will instantly notice the attention to detail in the craftsmanship of the custom wood work and the antique restoration/preservation, from the ornate front door to chair railings, crown molding, stair case balusters and the lovely book cases in the living room. Nearly all of the rooms have heart-pine flooring running the width of the room.
The formal dining room offers an expansive space for entertaining with French doors opening to a beautiful brick patio. For everyday dining there is a breakfast nook off from the kitchen.
The three-bedroom, four bath home provides a private office or den suite on the first floor with a nicely appointed bath with radiant floor heat and Carrara marble vanity. This could also be utilized as a first-floor master suite. On the second level there are three bedrooms, one en suite, and another full bath.
The small farm includes a large workshop and woodworking shop (with office, bathroom and painting room) and a barn. Approximately 10 acres are fenced with eight-strand high-tensile fencing (previously used for sheep and currently planted in alfalfa for hay). Enjoy the herbs, perennials and vegetables from the raised-bed gardens. Outside the kitchen is an exterior bathroom with shower for quick clean ups--- Perfect for the avid gardener!
Culpeper with its wonderful main street shops and restaurants is located 20 minutes away and Charlottesville is an easy 35 minute drive. Enjoy relaxed country living without being remote!
