It's all about quiet country living in this charming Louisa estate.
Built in 1875, "Ashleigh" is a classic Virginia farm with plenty of potential. Over the years, the home has been expanded to include five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a powder room.
The property stretches out over 14.5 acres of lush pastures with stables and two enclosed paddocks for your horses. It is currently listed for $899,000 by Frank Hardy Sotheby's International Realty and is located at 12894 Louisa Road in Louisa, Virginia.
The original home has been carefully restored and expanded to include additional living space and bedrooms. Everything about the property is designed for comfortable country living, including the wide front porch with plenty of room for rocking chairs.
Inside, the rooms have been opened up to create a welcoming feel. You can sense the original design of the house through the rustic stone fireplace. A complete mother-in-law suite was created on the main floor, just off of the great room.
The cozy farmhouse kitchen is fully updated for all of your big family meals. Gather in the dining room or just grab a quick bite in the adjacent breakfast nook.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are spacious and filled with natural light. You have a wonderful view of the surrounding acreage from every window.
The home is full of charming details like a screened-in veranda and a brick deck out back. It's the perfect place for grilling or just enjoying the sunset with a glass of sweet tea.
Over 14 acres of prime Virginia farmland would be yours to create your dream country property. Would you use the paddocks to ride horses, or start a llama farm? There are two large barns on the property that could easily be converted into stables to house your animals.
"Ashleigh" is an opportunity of a lifetime. Just minutes from both Charlottesville and Richmond, it is perfectly located to enjoy the best of both worlds. For more information, or to schedule a tour, visit the original listing.
