Description

What an incredible opportunity to own a piece of Rappahannock history, now offered at a special price for both parcels together. Belle Meade Farm Bed & Breakfasts restored Victorian home and 137 acres of rolling pasture and forest will take you far away from the bustle of the everyday to a more gentle, bucolic existence. The historic Belle Meade Farm and Schoolhouse are an iconic part of the scenic F. T. Valley. Located just south of Sperryville, these spectacular structures have graced the valley for more than 100 years. Originally built in 1890, a Victorian-style addition expanded the main home in about 1909. Restored and expanded again in the 1990s by the current owners, Belle Meades Victorian farmhouse is a historical gem. The owners have shared this remarkable home as a popular bed and breakfast since the restoration. With seven roof gables and many bay windows, the home in its current incarnation blends the newer owners quarters seamlessly with the original structure. The front portion of the home consists of a sitting room, formal dining room, and a main floor bedroom, with three additional bedrooms upstairs. The owners quarters feature a great room with kitchen and dining area, a separate commercial kitchen for the B&B, and an expansive owners suite upstairs.The schoolhouse was built in 1914 and served as a school until it closed in the late 1950s. The current owner bought it in 1998 and undertook the massive project of building a new foundation away from the road, moving the structure onto the foundation, and renovating. After 20 years as Belle Meade School, this historic structure is now ready to begin its next chapter.The schoolhouse is 5,231 sq.ft. of soaring ceilings, tall windows, and bright, airy spaces. The hallway upstairs has an impressive clerestory cupola. There are 4 large classrooms on the main level and 2 bathrooms. The original chalkboards are still in use and the wood floors are stunning. The classrooms on the west side have double doors leading out to the large back deck that overlooks the garden and mountains.The lower level opens to a huge room that has seen many school plays and even a wedding reception or two. Tables, seating and linens for 100, and dishes, glasses and flatware for 75 can be included with the sale. This offering also includes a 2,590 square foot cottage, built in 2010. The cottage has Hardie-plank type siding and a standing seam metal roof. There is a wrap-around deck and a patio, perfect for outdoor entertaining. The great room on the main level has 9 ft. ceilings, a 4-panel sliding door that opens to the deck, and a cozy fireplace. The kitchen adjoins the great room and has gorgeous cherry cabinets and granite counters. Just off the great room is a dining room with northwest mountain views. There is a main floor bedroom and the entire upper floor is a cozy suite with dormer windows. The expansive, walkout lower level has high ceilings and a wide-open floor plan.The grounds present wonderful options for pleasant diversion, from a 60-foot swimming pool, a hot tub, and a sport court, to flower gardens, several pastures, and a riding ring. Up the hill there is a secret swimming pond complete with dock and ladder. The 137-acre parcel is approximately half open pastures and half forested. Continuing your exploration beyond the swimming pond will reveal a wooded trail leading up the mountain to a hidden spring bubbling out from between boulders. Heading back down, enjoy the expansive view from the upper pasture across Kilbys Creek and over Belle Meade Farms home, grounds, and stately old barns. Most of this beautiful property is protected by a conservation easement, conferring peace of mind and a property tax break to its owner.This unusual property provides a unique opportunity for a new owner with creativity and vision. What will be written as the next chapter in the Belle Meade story? Please see MLS # VARP2001452 and VARP2001540 for more details.
