$1,000,000 PRICE REDUCTION! From high above the Rapidan River on Clarks Mountain, the residence at Mistwood captures an expansive view across the Piedmont to the Blue Ridge mountains. Here is a sublime 21st century architectural expression in time honored materials of stone and cedar capped with a standing seam copper roof. Principal rooms overlook the farm where the sage use of glass escorts light and landscape into a warm and inviting harbour of the finest country living. Exceptional attention to the detail of systems and space means this house offers the freedom of immediate use and enjoyment. There are six bedrooms with six baths (and three powder rooms) with an abundance of complementary areas to commune with family and friends.
The curtilage is beautifully landscaped in azalea, rhododendron, boxwood and specimen shade trees. Here, too, is a secret garden, flagstone terraces and over 1,000 sq.ft. of decking. The gunite salt water swimming pool with Jacuzzi is set on a flagstone upper terrace amongst a rose garden overlooking a lake accessed by stone steps through the meadow.
There are 235+ acres and long frontage on the south bank of the Rapidan River. Approximately 70 acres are in fertile bottomland crops of corn or soybeans with 100 acres in deep, fertile pasture presently used for cattle and horses. The balance is in mature hardwood forest. By permit water is pumped from the Rapidan River to the lake just below the house. The lake is also fed underground by run-off from the residence roof and then recycled in garden.
Further improvements include the three bedroom two bath farm managers house, The Lodge, along the drive to the principal residence. The Lodge can be three bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths are separated into two apartments, each with a full kitchen. Nearby is the like-new 10 stall center-aisle stable with two foaling stalls, tack room and wash rack. Plentiful hay storage is available in the adjacent concrete floored equipment shed with shop and office. A large storage barn and run-in-shed complete the improvements. Mistwood is in the Bull Run Hunt and minutes from HITS Commonwealth Park in Culpeper.
Mistwood is conveniently located between Charlottesville and Washington, D.C. A twin jet airport is 25 mins while Dulles International Airport is just over an hours drive.
