TAIL RACE FARM
Tail Race Farm is a fully functioning 10 ACRE HORSE FARM located 1 mile north of the Historic Village of Aldie and the Aldie Mill, c. 1807. The name “Tail Race” refers to the water channel, which carries the water from the Mill and runs parallel to this road. This farm is also directly across this country lane from the historic Oak Hill, once the estate of James Monroe, the fifth U.S. President. This is an extraordinary location minutes from Leesburg, Middleburg, I-66 and Dulles International Airport. Fully fenced and usable, this is a manageable horse property, which, with permission, offers tremendous ride-out in the Middleburg Hunt Territory.
