If you've ever wanted to own a small village, then this is the listing for you.
Mount Ida Reserve is a unique opportunity to truly create your own dream home, bringing along as many of your friends and family as you'd like. It includes restored historical estates, a manor house, multiple home sites with acres of land, a central lodge, a winery, a brewery, an event barn, stables, and much more, just minutes from downtown Charlottesville.
There are so many things to see with this listing; let's start with one of "the big houses." Known as Aventador Manor, this gracious home is built in the Georgian style with six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and three powder rooms on acres of rolling countryside.
Multiple homes have already been built on the property, each with their own unique design and acreage. Check out this log cabin and its cozy interior. Not every home is a giant estate!
Central to this immense property is the taphouse, brewery, and tasting room. Residents can dine there like it's their own private restaurant and the space is often booked for special events. After dinner, you can stroll down to Water's Edge, the property's private lake.
Picture-perfect weddings and events are held at Mount Ida Farm (6903 Blenheim Road). Between the outdoor and indoor venues, brides have their choice of incredible settings for their big days.
All in all, this property is a unique opportunity for someone with sweeping vision. It includes tracts of land ready for building, existing homes to rent out, and multiple event venues that already generate significant income in their own right.
If Mount Ida Reserve sells at close to its asking price of $75,000,000 it will be the single most expensive property sold in Virginia. For more information, including a full video tour, check out the original listing.
