Unique opportunity to own 7.5 Acres within 2 blocks of Main Street, Middleburg; bordered on the West by the boundary line of the Town of Middleburg and the East by Wancopin Creek. When the owners purchased the land and began building, Middleburg’s historic boundary line ran through the property and the new home. After discussion with the Town, Middleburg moved the boundary and created a new, shared property line. From this property one is able to walk to Main Street, without getting on a major road.
Other major improvements include the rebuilding of the handsome stone walls, which parallel the remnants of the ancient trail bed from Town. A natural spring on the property provided the perfect location for a pond, which was added and stocked with an ecosystem including snails, koi, blue gill and bass. The grassy area around the pond is shaded in the summer with Weeping Willow trees providing a park like setting. The pool, was built away from the shadow of the home allowing excellent sun; a stone retaining wall was constructed to allow the pool to be sited in this location offering added privacy.
The land is gently sloped and the home is sited high, providing wonderful views, which look out on the perennial gardens, grounds, stone walls, pool and pond. To enjoy the serene countryside the home was designed with multiple covered porches, balconies and terraces. From the front yard and porches one can view Middleburg’s 4th of July fireworks.
