The late Bunny Mellon’s Upperville estate listed for $70 million
Oak Springs Farm was listed with Washington Fine Properties on Aug. 14 as "one of most beautiful properties in all of America with rolling pastures & mountain views," according to the real estate agency's website.
Amenities on the property include a private air strip, two stables with a total of 43 horse stalls, three primary residences, more than 20 cottages, multiple barns and shops and "extraordinary" gardens and greenhouses.
The estate is well-known in equestrian history for being the home of the 1993 Kentucky Derby winner, Sea Hero.
Mellon passed away March 17 at the age of 103.
Her father was the president of Gillette Safety Razor Co. and a founder of Warner-Lambert.
She married that late Paul Mellon, a philanthropist and one of five people to ever be designated an "Exemplar of Racing" for his work breeding thoroughbred race horses.
