Welcome to "Rutledge Farm."
This elegant Loudoun County home features an expansive horse farm spanning over 113 acres and several unique outbuildings. The main manor house was built in 1740, with an addition dating back to 1820. This week's featured listing is located at 22956 Carters Farm Lane in Middleburg and is currently listed for $8,000,000 by Sheridan-MacMahon.
The layout is classic Colonial, with receiving rooms branching off a central hallway. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time as soon as you walk in. Can you even imagine who may have stepped on those weathered hardwood floors?
A beautiful sunroom brings the outdoors in, even when the weather isn't cooperating.
Upstairs, the six bedrooms have retained their original charm, with working fireplaces and incomparable views of the surrounding farmland. Remember, it's easy to get rid of wallpaper with a little elbow grease and a steamer!
A spacious 3-bedroom guest house makes the perfect getaway for your out-of-town visitors. They will love having their own privacy while remaining within a stone's throw of the "big house."
There are five stables in all, for a total of 35 stalls. Numerous paddocks, an indoor ring, and an established local reputation make this property ideal for any aspiring equestrian business owner.
Last, but certainly not least, what country home is complete without a private pond? This one is big enough for practicing your rowing skills, and there's even a gazebo where you can curl up with a good book.
As far as prime Loudoun County real estate, it doesn't get much better than this. For more information, or to schedule a tour of the property, consult the original listing.
