Dating back to the mid-18th century and hardly bereft of its historic charm, this three-bedroom Bluemont home in the heart of Virginia’s Hunt Country boasts a picturesque setting and a small equine facility. It can be yours for $795,000.
More than 5 robust acres comprise this property, which includes the 2,430-square-foot house, a seven-stall barn and a full-size, open-air arena with all-weather footing. Despite its rural placement, listing agent Pamela Smith said the property’s proximity to various western Loudoun hotspots is anything but inconvenient.
“You have Middleburg and Purcellville both right on your doorstep,” she told the Times-Mirror. “Both of those are within 15 minutes of you. In Middleburg you’ve got all of your restaurants and stores and shops. There are lots of local breweries and wineries that are nearby … and then you’ve got Purcellville with all of its amenities — Starbucks, Harris Teeter, Giant, things like that.”
The stone house itself has stood since 1756 with additions having been made in the 1800s, according to Smith. She said signatures of both building periods are evident throughout the home, such as “very cozy” rooms with wood-burning fireplaces from the original construction and high-ceilinged spaces from the 19th-century additions. The foyer serves as an example of the latter and features an upright wooden staircase, while the original, winding staircase can be found elsewhere in the home.
At the opposite end of the foyer lies the kitchen, which includes the aforementioned high ceilings with skylights that douse the granite countertops, tile floor, stainless-steel appliances and white cabinetry with beautiful, natural light. A many-windowed dining room sits adjacent to the kitchen, while a family room and study — each with its own fireplace — complete the first level of the home.
The three bedrooms rest upstairs, each complete with indelible views of the surrounding countryside. Two of these can easily be considered master-sized, and one of those two includes a small, bedside fireplace. Before retiring to their sleeping quarters, residents and guests can enjoy one or several of the outdoor hangout spaces within the property’s black picket fences: the two covered porches attached to the house, and a covered, stylishly rustic bar in the backyard, which is accompanied by a brick fire pit.
“It’s nice all times of the year, because there’s quite a breeze there,” Smith said of the side porch in particular.
