Opportunity to own a legacy property with conservation easement potential--notably this is the gateway to the Paris Valley. Enjoy unimaginable, far-reaching views from this home located above the historic hamlet of Paris, Virginia. Across the stunning hillside meadows there are plenty of enchanting additional building sites for your new home. There are 7 divisions allowed by right. Mature trees, rubble stone walls and abundant wildlife are found here. The property, located west of Middleburg and Upperville, is easy to access from multiple directions. Perfectly poised for pursuit of an agribusiness/farm winery or brewery. As a single unit, the total 47.85 acres represents an unparalleled situation to create a one-of-a-kind family compound, country home or hunter's wildlife paradise, enjoying vantage point views like no other.


The listing includes 3 adjoining parcels (6.1 acres, 20.28 and 21.47 acres). Good soil, south facing slopes and siting make this an attractive location for vineyards. Located at the landmark intersection of John S. Mosby Highway (Route 50) and Route 17, the location is strategic for a farm winery, farm brewery or other agribusiness. The property has extensive frontage on U.S. Route 50 with several entrance points. The property is situated amidst a variety of protected, conserved lands which contribute to its conservation value. Piedmont Environmental Council and Virginia Outdoors Foundation easements protect over 1,500 acres in the area. Sky Meadows State Park of 1,826 acres and the G. Richard Thompson State Wildlife Management Area, consisting of 4,000 acres, are nearby neighbors. A launch station for the Appalachian Trail is across the road. The Shenandoah River is two minutes away. There is a charming, renovated two story, 3 bedroom, 2 and a half bath home, a 6,000 sq ft bank barn/equipment storage building/shop, several storybook outbuildings (for storage, potting and gardening, farm animals, art studio or office--Think author, Bunny Williams' book, "An Affair with a House"). Relax on wraparound porch--enjoy unmatched views. The house is graced with antique hardwood floors and has a period feel. High speed broadband internet! The 6,000 sq ft barn sits apart from the home with ample parking on all sides with separate driveway. The well-constructed block and board and batten building has a large workshop with restroom and 8 bays on one level of the building. Generous area for farm equipment, car collection, or your other hobbies. On the other side of the building are two secure storage rooms and huge space with high, raftered ceilings. The building has been recently enhanced with a 220v RV hookup. Live in the existing home during construction of your new home and use the large barn as the base of operations for the construction crew and fabrications!


Conservation easement potential exists. Development potential exists. The land offers 7 by right divisions. Many varied opportunities await your imagination.
