About the Property
Emerald Hill, with its stunning views, is a little gem surrounded by picturesque, large farms. The manageable 14-acre parcel is open and rolling with a small stretch of creek at its southern border. There are also two springs that rush down to meet the creek, a tributary to the Hughes River. The property is fully fenced and is currently used for cattle. There are multiple options for building sites to take advantage of the views. Whether building a weekend escape, a farmette, or a private estate for a full-time residence, Emerald Hill provides many opportunities.
Emerald Hill Road is a state-maintained, lightly traveled gravel road. It is easily reached from Route 707 (Slate Mills Road) and is located only 12 miles from Sperryville and 14 miles from Culpeper. 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.
