Lost Corner

Rectortown, Virginia

         Hillside is a lovely 19.32 acre farm located on a picturesque gravel lane just outside of the historic village of Rectortown.  The road comes to an end just beyond the property making the setting especially private. Mature trees, established plantings, stacked stone walls and rolling hills are found behind the understated security gates. The property takes in far reaching views from nearly every direction.

         A four bedroom, three bathroom Colonial style home has been well maintained and provides for comfortable living.  The house was remodeled to include access to outdoor living from nearly every room on the main level and oversized windows take in the expansive views.  There is a welcoming entry foyer, formal living and dining rooms, kitchen with attached family room, and  large mudroom/office on the main level. Both the family room and dining room open onto a large wooden porch at the back of the house. The porch is large enough for outdoor entertaining and takes in the beautiful pastoral and mountain views.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the guest bedrooms located on the opposite side of the house from the master bedroom suite.  Laundry facilities are conveniently located on the same level as the bedrooms.  Hardwood flooring is found throughout the home.  There is a full basement accessed from both the kitchen and the outside. The basement offers plenty of storage, a second laundry area and the opportunity for further expansion of available living space.  An attached garage opens into the mudroom/office which holds a full bathroom.  The home and stable are supported by a back up generator with auto start.

         The equestrian improvements were added by the experienced, resident horseman.  A four stall, center aisle barn includes an attractive, paneled tack room which is heated. There is a hot water heater for bathing horses, a large storage/feed room and hay loft over the entire barn. The large run- in shed is conveniently incorporated into the barn and offers easy access to horses. The paddock fencing was planned to allow each paddock use of the run in and to facilitate good pasture management.  A lunging ring is located next to the barn and a fenced 120’ by 240’ grass arena is found on the knoll above. The grass arena drains well and enjoys beautiful views.  An additional schooling area is found in the field below the barn. Hunting panels are incorporated into many of the pasture fence lines. 

The property is bordered by an active stream, is in the heart of Orange County Hunt territory and (with permission) offers extensive ride out.  An equipment storage building is conveniently located next to the stable and has a kennel attached.  There is an invisible fencing system to keep dogs safe at home.This is truly a rare find.
