Beyond the original threshold, let the original Heart of Pine floors lead you through the home where you’ll admire beautifully crafted millwork on restored plaster walls. Updates of convenience and luxury harmonize with living spaces of exposed beams and windows wrapped in crafted trim. The light-filled modern kitchen is the chic heart of the home. Here alabaster walls and cream colored cabinetry accompany travertine countertops, enviable appliances, and charming brick restorations. Welcome guests back from a day exploring Hunt and Wine Country with savory treats and joyful conversation.

When you need to refresh, the thoughtful and handsome bathrooms offer luxury and care. Though with enough historical note and land for a bed and breakfast or vineyard, you may simply want to enjoy the quiet of your property. Misty morning strolls to visit your horses, tending to your dream garden, or fishing the fully stocked pond will inspire the day’s adventures. This estate of time gone by, near the village of Flint Hill, close to the famous The Inn At Little Washington, is a spectacular escape for any lover of historic beauty and natural wonder!
Nestled in the heart of Virginia’s Piedmont Region, Rappahannock County remains one of the state’s most pristine and beautiful landscapes. The hue of the Blue Ridge Mountains set a breathtaking Appalachian backdrop, giving way to rolling hills, pastures, and the rambling tributaries of the expansive Rappahannock River. Quaint villages and hamlets dot the countryside, each with its own distinct lure rooted in rich Virginian history. Adjacent to the Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive the county boasts a diverse array of destinations from award winning wineries and gourmet dining to steeple chase races and active hunts. Flint Hill, the major thoroughfare from the mountains to the state capital, offers panoramic views of the vistas throughout the Piedmont. If a getaway is what you’re looking for, then look no further. However, don’t write Rappahannock off simply as a tourist destination. With its immense natural resources and compatible climate, the county is the ideal setting for sustainable farming, livestock and vineyards.
