Approx. 2 miles from the center of the quiet village of Delaplane, this property is located in the verdant terrain of the Piedmont Hunt. A peaceful 15 minute drive southwest of Middleburg or less than a 10 minute drive from Interstate 66, this is a wonderful location.
72.89 acres with a mix of rolling terrain and flatland and a tributary running into Goose Creek traversing the landscape. Perfect for training of horses, there is an uphill gallop, 100’ x 200’ riding arena and an area suitable for a jump course. There are approximately 20 acres in board fenced paddocks.
Built of wide, white oak boards in 2003 by Peter Williams, synonymous with attention to detail; this barn was strategically sited to take advantage of the prevailing winds. Its wide center aisle as well as cross aisle and the high ceilings with vents, provide for excellent cross ventilation. In addition to 7 stalls, there is a tack room, feed/hay room, wash room, work room, office, ¼ bath, washer & dryer. The flooring system in the aisles is the rubber brick flooring; the stalls each have the “Soft Stall Flooring System” offering therapeutic advantage to both the rider and the horse. An automatic fly spraying system is also installed in each of the stalls. Another very desirable feature is the generator, which will provide necessary power during outages.
As you enter the barn from the gravel parking area the apartment is located in the left quarter of the barn. The beautiful white oak screened doors to the home are the first indication that you are entering a home not just a barn apartment. Once again the picture windows, reclaimed heart pine flooring, high ceilings, the use of white oak throughout, granite countertops, high quality appliances, and screened porch make this a warm, comfortable, one bedroom plus den home.
