This 224 +/- acre property has great views, an excellent location, varied topography and outstanding agricultural potential. With long frontage on Zachary Taylor Highway (Rt. 522) in Huntly, the property is perfectly located for a specialty agriculture operation that wants a presence on a busy tourist route. It is just across the road from one of the most successful wineries in Virginia so the property is ideal for a vineyard and winery.
The property has a predominate southeastern slope which is ideal for growing grapes. There are also two good-sized ponds for irrigation. In addition there are several strong streams and a number of springs located throughout the property. Near Rt. 522 there is a prominent knoll, which is the obvious place for a retail presence because it has excellent visibility from the road.
Approximately 60 acres are fenced pasture that is currently being use for grazing cattle. This open area has excellent 180-degree views of forested foothills and rolling farmland. From the higher reaches of the pasture, there are amazing long range eastern views.
As the property rises up the mountainside, it becomes heavily forested with poplars, hickories and oaks. This mountainous portion reaches 1,200 feet in elevation and has several great home sites that have excellent privacy and astounding views.
Many of the characteristics that make this property ideal for a specialty agriculture operation also make it a sportsperson’s dream. There is plenty of water, a mix of open and forested land, and widely varied vegetation, the ideal environment for bear, deer and sporting fowl. It is close to the Shenandoah National Park for hiking, fishing and exploring and fishing, kayaking and canoeing on the Shenandoah River is only minutes away near Front Royal. Rappahannock County has many fine restaurants and other wineries that will allow you a variety of fun activities every weekend.
