The Mount

Virginia is renowned for some of the most beautiful scenic drives in the country and the rural byway known as Snickersville Turnpike, with its stretches of gorgeous farmlands and mountain views, is at the top of the list.

Located here, on this famous road, is this historic property known as "The Mount".

This charming four-bedroom historic stone colonial, circa 1840's, is ideally situated on a beautiful 1.54 acre parcel in the heart of the Middleburg Hunt Territory. The house once served as a pre-civil war general store built by an early settler Jim Mount, for whom the town of Mountville is named.

Hence, its given name, "The Mount." The home is constructed of field stone collected from the surrounding countryside. Its walls are solid stone, several feet thick, and the house is an oasis of quiet tranquility. The edge of the property also once housed a toll booth where horse and buggy travelers stopped to pay their toll on the first toll road in the United States, Snickersville Turnpike. This property affords a truly unique historical opportunity.

A welcoming front porch is adorned by a handsome white porch swing, creating a wonderful and picturesque entrance. Bright and sun filled rooms feature lovely random width wood floors, gleaming after being recently refinished. Freshly painted in warm neutral tones, the residence is in excellent condition with newer appliances, central air conditioning and an inviting wood burning fireplace to enjoy on chilly evenings. The rear family room/sun room boasts beamed and vaulted ceilings, and serves nicely as an informal dining room, with double French doors opening to a spacious wood deck, ideal for entertaining. A powder room is nicely tucked under the staircase in the front entrance hall. Pastoral views off the rear deck are gorgeous and capture breathtaking sunsets across the lush meadows.

The second level features two bedrooms and a full tiled bath, plus a laundry area and small balcony.

The third level also includes two bedrooms, vaulted ceilings and another full tiled bath. A circular driveway marks the entrance and allows for ample parking.

Thousands of acres of undeveloped land sit behind the property. Explore an unused sunken pre-civil war road bound by stone walls, abandoned historic barns and homesteads.

The Mount is situated just north of the historic village of Middleburg. Fine restaurants, boutique shops, lush vineyards, excellent schools and sporting clubs are all located nearby. Washington Dulles International Airport is approximately twenty minutes away and the nation's capital is within an hour's drive.

The Mount is an exceptional offering, beautifully updated with meticulous attention to preserving its historical integrity, in an idyllic country setting.
