Deerfield Farm is a gracious Virginia Hunt Country Estate, beautifully situated on the eastern edge of the historic village of Upperville in Fauquier County. The setting for the stately brick manor house, ca. 1844, is romantic, as the gated entry opens into the long private drive which turns to reveal the home and lush plantings on the hillside approaching the home. The manicured lawn and gardens of flowers, vegetables, and an orchard were featured in the Garden Club of Virginia's Historic Garden Week Tour in 2014.

 

Listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places, the home's exterior shows the influence of both the Federal and Greek Revival Styles of Architecture. Originally built as a 3 level, 2 over 2 manor house with center stair hallway, it offered 2 public rooms on the main level, 2 bedrooms on the upper level, and 2 lower level rooms with exterior access. Each of the 6 rooms had an interior built fireplace, providing extra warmth for the home and interior space for lovely built-in cabinetry. Prior to the Civil War, a three-level wing, now the dining room with bedroom above and farm office below was added.

 

The current and previous owners, having deep respect for this property, made extensive renovations which began in the 1980's. Fortunately the original pine floors, mantles, doors and most of the windows with handmade glass were saved. The home has been beautifully restored and seamlessly expanded to include the country kitchen and adjoining two-level porch. The home now offers 11 elegant and inviting rooms. On the main level one finds the living room, library, dining room and large kitchen with its own dining area. The upper level offers 4 bedrooms with 3 baths and the lower level offers 3 rooms and 1/2 bath. The three fireplaces on the main level have been relined and are used often, as is the French wood stove in the kitchen. The attention to detail in restoring Deerfield Farm is evident to all who visit: this is one of the great beauties of Hunt Country.

 

The acreage at Deerfield is 181 acres, with most of the land protected by an easement with the Virginia Outdoors Foundation. Combined with easements on adjacent properties, the setting for Deerfield and its viewshed are protected. The fields behind the home are some of the highest elevations in the area and offer Blue Ridge and Bull Run Mountain views. Approximately 9 acres of Deerfield are within the Village of Upperville and contain the Rebecca Carr house, a charming tenant cottage, an enclosed machine/workshop and 5 bay garage. Upperville is known worldwide for the Upperville Colt and Horse Show, the oldest and one of the most prestigious horse shows in America, est. in 1853.

To the back and side of the home, a barn was converted to a guest house with a large bedroom in the former hayloft and a full kitchen, bath, sitting and dining area below. Downstairs also has a large pulldown screen and video projector for movie night.

 

To the left of the home is a relocated ca. 1810 log cabin with one bedroom and bath, which also serves as a pool house to the adjacent pool with spa.
