The Plains, Virginia

Gently Now Farm provides a wonderful feeling of tranquility, from the lay of the land to the comfortable living of the home. Located minutes from Historic Middleburg, this private and charming 31 acre horse property is a combination of woodland and gently rolling open land, much of which is fenced. As one enters the property the driveway bends to the left to the barns and to the right to the home. Designed for ease of management, the home and barns are quite near to one another.


Beautifully remodeled, this home provides the convenience of one level living plus a lower level recreation room and utility room with storage. A covered entry brings one into the foyer, which opens to the right into a den/office and to the front into the spacious living room (20’ x 19’) with wood burning fireplace. The pastoral views coming through the walk in bay window greet you upon entering the home. To the left of the living room is the dining room with walk in bay window, again with lovely views. Adjoining the living room is the family room (20’ x 19’) and kitchen, providing an excellent entertainment flow, perfect for large gatherings. In addition, both the living and family rooms open onto to the slate terrace and lawn. The chef’s kitchen includes a 5 burner gas cooktop, double ovens, sub-zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, wine refrigerator, breakfast bar and walk-in pantry. The family room is inviting with a raised hearth wood-burning fireplace, small bar, paneled walls and exposed beams. This is truly the main living area of the home also offering a full bath, access to the lower level and access to the laundry room and mud room with cabinetry. From the mudroom one door opens to the attached 2 car garage and another to the side entrance.

To the right of the foyer is the bedroom hallway with two bedrooms sharing a hall bath. The master bedroom, is at the end of this hall, with a walk-in cedar closet and private bath including soaking tub and separate shower. Adding to the relaxing feeling of this room, an atrium door opens out to a slate terrace. Being on one level with terraces and lawn to enjoy, this home encourages one to venture out of doors, enjoy one’s morning coffee and breathe in the countryside.

From the side entry of the home one passes the heated pump house and garden shed on the way to the barns. The horse facilities include a 4 stall, center aisle barn with wash stall and heated tack room with hot water heater, washer and dryer. There is a separate 3 stall shed row barn with attached run in shed and machine shed. With a total of seven stalls, an all weather riding ring, 4 fenced paddocks and tremendous ride out potential in the Orange County Hunt territory, Gently Now Farm is a superb property to be enjoyed.
