First you hear the peaceful silence. Second you smell: fresh cut hay in the spring, wood smoke and leaves in the fall, and the smell of snow in the air in winter. As you relax on your large deck looking at the distant horizon occasionally you could swear you smell the ocean. Welcome home!
Enjoy the peace and tranquility that can be found at Misty Ridges Farm located just 30 minutes south of Charlottesville and ten minutes from the charming village of Scottsville. These 176+/- acres begin at the top of the mountain ridge and gently fall off to Wolftrap Creek, creating a stunning view that is commonly referred to as the Jefferson Sea. This view over many hills in the Piedmont evaporates into the horizon.
The land faces the southeast and has a gentle declining topography. This would be a wonderful place for a vineyard, orchard, wedding venue or even a solar farm.
The newly updated home on the property offers Brazilian Cherry floors, four bedrooms and two and one-half baths. All of the bathrooms have been upgraded with marble vanities and ceramic tile flooring. The kitchen has been upgraded as well and has gourmet appliances, granite counters and sleek maple cabinetry. There is a walk-out basement which is suitable for many uses. The HVAC system was replaced in 2018. This low-maintenance home comes with a whole house generator.
You will enjoy dining in the breakfast room or on the large patio, both which allow for unobstructed views of the rolling vistas.
You will also find on this farm a large equipment barn, small orchard, many trails, meadows and a pond.
This property has 16 theoretical division rights and could be a good candidate for a conservation easement.
