Panoramic mountain views, rolling southeastern facing pastures, and a a gradual 600’ to over 800’ elevation with a potential substantive timber source, this 319+/- acre farm offers a wealth of opportunities.
Located approximately 20 miles south of Charlottesville just across the Albemarle County line in scenic Nelson County, Rock Spring Mountain Farm has been home to beef cattle and used for hay production.
With this amount of acreage potential uses abound varying from a diverse farm to a wedding venue, an orchard or a vineyard. The upper ridge of the farm consists of hardwoods that may provide an additional source of revenue.
The existing home on the property was expanded in 1948 from a three-room cabin to a two bedroom/two bath home by James Martin, a brick mason at the University of Virginia. The beautiful serpentine front walkway is an excellent example of his superior craftsmanship.Gorgeous hardwood floors extend through the spacious living spaces as well as into the bedrooms. The home is well maintained (new roof in 2018) with a private yard surrounded by large boxwoods similar to those found on a historic home sight.
Nelson County is famous for its wineries, breweries and distilleries, Wintergreen Ski Resort, Stoney Creek Golf Course, Crabtree Falls and farm markets. The farm is just up the road from “Walton’s” Mountain and the Rockfish river, the inspiration for Earl Hamner Jr.’s (John Boy) novels about life during the Great Depression (the inspiration for the “Waltons” TV show.
