About the Property
Ashby Road is a little gem tucked off a lightly used country road with easy access to several wonderful hikes including the Hazel River Trail. A strong trail meanders down from Ashby Road to a strong stream that bisects the property. The land is perfectly shaped to dam up the stream and create a wonderful pond. From the stream the property rises to a small knoll which is the best homesite on the parcel. From the home site, you have views down FT Valley and to the Shenandoah National Park to the west. The lot is entirely wooded and offers privacy and serenity for its residents.
Ashby Road is a state maintained road that eventually dead ends so you don’t have to worry about through traffic. The property is only about 2 miles from Sperryville so, despite its perfect privacy, it is an ideal location for a weekend retreat This ideal location allows an easy commute to jobs and schools in Culpeper and a short drive to everything this area has to offer. Rappahannock, Madison and Culpeper counties have a wealth of farms and farmer’s markets, antique stores, wineries, breweries, restaurants, art galleries, historical sites, and much more. Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive are 30 minutes away, providing one of the country’s most scenic drives and many miles of hiking trails. Located about an hour and a half from Washington, DC, and just over an hour from Charlottesville, the property is well situated for a weekend getaway.
