An historic, serene and expansive Virginia equestrian estate
Comprised of nearly 185 acres of prime Virginia countryside, Edgewood Farms is a stunningly beautiful equestrian estate which has been rebuilt with much care and architectural integrity, impeccably maintained, and very well cared for by the current owners for more than 25 years. Edgewood is the oldest homestead site in Campbell County, Virginia and was originally built circa 1758 by Colonel Jeremiah Early, a well-known member of the Virginia Militia. The tree-lined driveway was once traveled by the historic Overland Stage Coach line.
Majestically sited on the estate, the main home is surrounded by elegant and well-maintained traditional landscaped gardens and mature trees. The main home was rebuilt in 1988 and offers 5,200 square-feet of living space with superior fitments, finishes and attention to architectural detail and harmony. The home includes a main-level master bedroom with fireplace and en-suite master bath, three other bedrooms and an additional three and a half bathrooms. Among the many quality features of this home are solid walnut doors, cabinetry, and trim; tall ceilings, solid surface counters, walnut floors, and three additional fireplaces with wonderfully detailed mantel surrounds.
As one enters the home, the elegant and welcoming foyer space opens to an open staircase which highlights the extensive moldings and custom millwork present throughout. The spacious main level of the home includes an inviting living room, a traditional dining room with fireplace, a cozy and relaxing den with fireplace, and updated eat-in kitchen, and a beautifully wood-paneled library with another fireplace.
Ascending the main staircase, one passes a light-filled landing and then continues to the second floor where there are found two additional bedrooms with a possible playroom or dressing area, along with a sitting area and two full bathrooms.
The basement of the main home is partially finished and could make for an ideal au pair or in-law suite with the finished area comprised of two bedrooms, a small nursery, a living room, kitchen and a full bathroom.
Complementing the main home exterior and adding to outdoor relaxed living and entertaining area is a well-landscaped patio and pool in the rear of the home. A two car-side load garage is also integrated to this setting to the right-side of the main home.
Edgewood Farms also encompasses a superbly laid-out and maintained 13-stall horse stable with an apartment and lodge or office space. This prime equestrian facility has been utilized for boarding, training, and also boasts an on-site riding facility, guest cottage and separate farm office. There is also a 1,300 square-foot metal building/workshop, a hay barn, and a pole barn/shed structure. All of these amenities make Edgewood the ideal property for the equestrian-based lifestyle and/or for those who may wish to pursue their own equestrian related business.
Edgewood Farms represents the finest elements of an elegant and genteel country lifestyle with a superior home on an historical site designed for rest, relaxation and repose; and, when combined with the many equestrian amenities, also provides ample opportunity for riding related sports activity as well as the potential for equestrian based business pursuits. All this taken together with the existing additional building sites, timber, hay production, and top soil farm, Edgewood also represents a superb investment that could not be easily replicated at the offered price.
