A 100 acres set in quiet pastoral landscape of lovely rolling pasture land with the protection of surrounding larger farms and estates in coveted Rappahannock County. Currently used for grazing cattle, this estate quality parcel would be ideal for a private retreat, farm, or vineyard. The privacy, mountain views, sparkling streams, and the gentle roll of the land make this a first class option for all your country dreams.
Improvements The property has been fenced in American wire (woven wire) fencing suitable for cattle and other livestock. There are several gates which lead to adjoining farms. Ninety percent of the land is in well maintained open pasture, approximately 10% is mixed hardwood forested land. The remains of an early 19th century farmhouse and barn are near the property entrance. An old roadbed is on the southern boundary of the property. Access is via agricultural rights-of-way through Cedar Break Lane and Shurgen Lane. There is plentiful water and the land should easily perc for a residential septic system.
Land Two bold streams course through the pasture to form a larger stream. There are several excellent potential pond sites as a result. The land is mostly open with a wooded hillside that has been recently timbered. Pasture land is well maintained and features a mixture of orchard grass, some white and red clovers, and native herbs and forbs. The rolling topography provides some visual interest as well as excellent drainage for potential orchards or vineyards. The soils are relatively thin and a mixture of decomposed granite schist on higher elevations and sandy loam at lower levels. While a turn-key set up for cattle or other livestock, the soils, slopes, elevation, and exposure are ideal for vineyard development.
The property is very private and peaceful. Distant mountain views are visible from the higher elevations and lovely views of surrounding farmland are in all directions. The acreage is a prime candidate for a conservation easement.
