The Location: Lavender Hill is located in Fauquier County, Virginia, halfway between the Villages of Middleburg and Upperville, a one hour drive from Washington, DC, and 30 minutes to Dulles International Airport.
The Property: Lavender Hill is nestled on a ridge overlooking Goose Creek in the prestigious Piedmont Hunt country estate area 4.5 miles west of Middleburg and 4.0 miles east of Upperville, Virginia. This rare 5.06 acre property enjoys spectacular, unobstructed views eastward to the Bull Run Mountains; and westward to the Blue Ridge. The main residence, a neo-classical Palladian villa, sits at the top of the property, accessed by a paved drive that rises from Goose Creek, through mature woodland and groomed meadows, arriving at a motor courtyard of french pea gravel in front of the house. Extensive terraced lawns and gardens cascade downward to the large 15’ x 58’ swimming pool set in a formal boxwood garden. Beyond is a latticed pergola draped in wisteria and a guesthouse.
The property consists of a main house with a center pavilion with a double living room, dining room and open kitchen. There are two side pavilions each containing a double story master bedroom suite with sleeping area, sitting room, dressing closets and en-suite bath. On the 2nd floor of each side pavilion are located two additional bedrooms and baths with dressing closets, each served by a separate stairway. The property is developed with splendid gardens, a large swimming pool and garden gazebo with shower facilities and changing cabins, expansive lawns, and a spacious guesthouse.
The Main House, designed by its owner-architect, takes its inspiration from the Jeffersonian traditions of the University of Virginia and from the Italianate villas of architect Andrea Palladio.
