The rolling hills across the fields of Maple Springs offer splendid views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Main House built in 1949 sits on one of those hills; and has acquired in this century a new Primary Bedroom with a tray ceiling and luxury Bath addition built over a second Garage. A few years later, the Kitchen was completely gutted and expanded. The new Kitchen windows resulted in replacing the rest of the house with Marvin Windows. Last year a Slate Terrace and Amish Built Lanai were constructed off the Kitchen creating another "room".

Generac, whole house generators, were recently installed

at both houses.

The c.1741 Cottage, on another hill, was accepted by the Virginia Historic and the National Historic registries in 1997. Soon after the present owners began a total restoration. Two stone fireplaces were either rebuilt or restored. The interior heart pine woodwork was given new life and the "1741" year was found cut into the underside of the lintel stone in the largest fireplace. A Bathroom and Kitchen wing was built using heart pine beams and wide heart pine flooring. Today it is a member of AirB&B and guests are thrilled with the charm and atmosphere.

The farm buildings lacked stabling and in 1995 a center aisle Morton Stable was built for four horses with Wash Stall and Tack Room. Two extra-large Run-In sheds were built in the horse pastures on either side of the stable. A large dog kennel was added overlooking the stable. An original stone Spring House near the Stable was given a Standing Seam metal roof when the main house got its new roof and the cottage metal roof repaired.

The three creeks which originate or wander into the farm, are fenced to keep horses and cattle from polluting the water which runs into the Rappahannock River (part of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed). Drilled wells at the main house and cottage also supply water to cattle and horse automatic waterers in the fields; and the Spring House is an alternative water source for horse pastures. Two springs originate creeks on the farm - one in a grove of Maple Trees.

The Cattle Shed, already on site, needed a Chute and Head Gate to "work cattle" and the whole farm was refenced. A Three Bay Equipment Shed became the only building needing no repair. In the recent past the grazing and cattle business was leased to a good neighbor, Lakota Ranch, who mow twice a year and maintain the cattle fencing.

Maple Springs is under easement with The Virginia Outdoors Foundation which allows one division which must be at least Fifty Acres. The Easement gives permanent "Land Use" taxation to the land which keep taxes low.

Enjoy the pleasant aspects of the Virginia countryside and country life, with serene mountain views and surrounded by very large cattle or horse farms, many of which are in land easements.
