If you are looking for the perfect country retreat, Brookhill Farm may be the property you have been waiting for. The main 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath farmhouse features an open floor plan, a gourmet kitchen, a master suite on the first floor, an outdoor heated pool, mature gardens, scenic porches and a brick veranda. The 44.5 acre parcel features long frontage on the Hazel River and outstanding views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Old Rag. The property includes fenced fields, run-in shed with a barn and an additional 3.8 AC lot with a 2 bedroom Guest Cottage.
A gentle tree-lined driveway greets you as you enter Brookhill Farm. The driveway winds along a three board fenced field until you reach the guest cottage. The charming 2-bedroom cottage is far enough from both the road and the main house to give its residents plenty of privacy while still allowing them to keep an eye on the entire property. Past the guest cottage lies the stable complete with hay storage and a tack room. To the left of the stable is an entrance to the large pasture that is currently being used for hay. Continuing past the stable, the driveway winds up to the main house.
An inviting brick portico welcomes you to the home and leads you into the 37’ x 26’ great room which is the heart of the home. A gourmet kitchen complete with 2 stoves and plenty of counter space occupies the left side of the great room. A butcher block counter separates the kitchen area from the dining area. Across from the dining area, the living room is anchored by a brick fireplace. A bank of windows runs along the entire great room letting in the magnificent view. Behind the dining area, French doors lead out to a screened in porch complete with a second fireplace. The great room and screened porch both have access to a covered porch. From the back porch, the patio and pool, complete with a pool room, are easily accessible. The views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Old Rag in the distance can be quite breathtaking.
As you walk past the living room, the home transitions from a public entertaining space to private living quarters. An expansive family room sits behind the great room. The back of the brick fireplace in the living room provides visual texture to the walls of this room. Across from the family room sits a small office or a potential spare bedroom. Behind the family room is a spacious and private master suite with a large master bath, laundry room, and plenty of closet space.
A staircase in the great room leads you up to three additional bedrooms. Two of these bedrooms are quite large and feature outstanding views of the Blue Ridge and Old Rag Mountain. The fourth bedroom is tucked away with plenty of peace and privacy. The upstairs bedrooms share a full bath and the second laundry room.
The 44.5 acre property offers a stunning mix of fields, woods and river. From a small creek that you cross as you enter the property, the property gently rises to a small knoll. A large open field sits to the left of the drive and runs from the road up to and beyond the barn. To the right of the drive is a large field that is a nice mix of mature trees and meadow. Behind the house is a third field that is bounded by a large tract of trees. A wooded path, large enough to drive on, leads from the field down to a sitting area on the bank of the Hazel River. This is the perfect place to enjoy a warm summer day fishing, playing in the water or just relaxing by the bank. Brookhill Farm has approximately 900 feet of frontage on the Hazel River.
Brookhill Farm is located only 10 miles from Culpeper and 15 miles from Sperryville. This allows for an easy commute to jobs and schools in Culpeper and the village of Sperryville with its two breweries, a distillery, yoga studio, restaurants and interesting shopping opportunities.

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 or a full time residence.
