In a county renowned for its glorious natural scenery, Hickerson Mountain stands out as the most spectacular property in Rappahannock County. Indeed, it may be the most awe-inspiring property in the entire chain of the Appalachian Mountains.
Hickerson Mountain is the iconic cleared mountaintop crowned by a solitary old white oak near Flint Hill. The tree stands like a single sentry overlooking Rappahannock County. From the 209 acres atop Hickerson Mountain there are 360 degree views limited only by the clarity of the day and the horizon. To the west the entire Blue Ridge Mountain chain ripples to the horizon in the classic “sea of mountains” view. To the east the Piedmont rolls to the edge of the earth. Mount Pony south of Culpeper, the lights of Warrenton and the mountains west of Madison are all visible more than 30 miles away.
At over 1,300 feet of elevation, the sweeping mountaintop property is comprised of the two broad peaks of Hickerson Mountain. The summits are linked by a wide-open saddle studded with massive rock outcroppings, copses of trees and the remains of an old cherry orchard. Much of the property is open and fenced but some of the steeper terrain is still forested. It is currently used as pasture for cattle.
This one-of-a-kind property is ideal for the discerning buyer who wants an awe-inspiring property that is ideally located and perfectly private.
The property is protected by a conservation easement held by the Virginia Outdoors Foundation. The easement restricts the size and location of buildings on the property but there are excellent building sites and the latitude for a substantial home and the typical accessory buildings. Please call Cheri Woodard for more details.
