If you've ever wanted to own a thriving Virginia cattle farm, then this is the listing for you.
A historic land grant from King George III created what is now known as Woodside Farms in New Market, Virginia. Built in 1800, the estate's Georgian manor house is a classic 5-bedroom, 5-bath home that was fully renovated in the 1980s. It comes with over 1,000 acres of prime Virginia farmland, available at auction on October 7 by Hall and Hall.
There are numerous outbuidings on the property, including two spacious tenant houses, a free-standing garage, storage facilities, and several barns. If you choose to further renovate the manor house, you can have your choice of living quarters while you do it. How convenient is that?
One of the most distinctive features of this Shenandoah Valley farm estate is an enormous round bale barn. It is the perfect spot for hosting cattle auctions and livestock shows.
The expansive property includes over a thousand acres of farmland and pastures suitable for grazing. A picturesque pond is a quaint feature of this charming country estate. Can't you just picture it bordered by weeping willow trees?
For more information about this incredible working farm, check out the Hall and Hall auction page for the Woodside Farms listing. You can download a brochure, view even more photos, or request information directly from the auction house. Act fast, though—the auction is currently scheduled to be held on October 7. The land is divided into tracts of varying sizes, and they will be all put up for sale.
