Property Description

Prepare to fall in love! This property sale consists of 4 parcels along historic Rapidan Rd. totaling 224.87 acres of some of the most beautiful land in Orange County known as Mountain Glen. Panoramic views of gently rolling hills, pastures, trees and mountains. A winding driveway from Rapidan Rd leads to the main house on the hill, built in the late 1800's by Scottish immigrants William G. and Robina S. Taylor. This elegant home needs a complete restoration. A grand, white-washed brick structure, 2 stories high with a full basement and a full walk -up attic. A new roof has been installed within the last 5 years, there are 12 fireplaces, 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, heart pine floors, a kitchen with a vaulted ceiling, butler's pantry, floor to ceiling windows and old world craftsmanship everywhere you look. On the grounds there is an old carriage house, stable, several sheds, an inground pool, board fencing, pasture and wooded acreage with a natural spring, creek and lovely trails. There is a charming tenant home built in 1890 in the same style as the main house and it has been partially restored. The views from any vantage point on the property are breathtaking. The idyllic location of Mountain Glen, in the heart of Virginia's Piedmont region, lends itself to transforming the property into a Vineyard, a Distillery, a Destination Wedding Venue, or Historic Inn with nature trails and horseback riding...the possibilities are endless. History surrounds Mountain Glen. Just a seven minute drive is Bloomsbury. Dating back to 1722 it was built by Virginia’s royal surveyor general, Col. James Taylor II — one of the fabled Knights of the Golden Horseshoe. Two of his great-grandsons became U.S. presidents, Zachary Taylor and James Madison. Twenty minutes west is Montpelier, the famed home of James and Dolly Madison. Central Virginia is home to 80+ vineyards! Some of which include Barboursville, Horton, Veritas, Early Mountain (owned by AOL's Steve Case) and Blenheim (owned by musician Dave Matthews). Mountain Glen is located one and a half hours from Washington, D.C., 45 minutes from Charlottesville and one and a half hours to Richmond. This Scots- American beauty is calling you to restore her and make your mark on her stunning 225 acres known as MOUNTAIN GLEN.
