Mill Run Valley
Mill Run Valley is 55.69 rugged and serene acres in one of the most secluded areas of Rappahannock County. Bisected by a strong mountain stream, the land climbs up on two forested ridges on the southern flank of Red Oak Mountain to an elevation over 1,000 feet. A network of old roads traverses the property, winding to summit of each ridge. Massive ancient stone outcroppings are visible in many areas of the property.
The property has excellent views of Bessie Bell Mountain and the eastern slope of Red Oak Mountain. When the leaves are off the trees the winter views of the mountains really open up. A mature forest of poplars, beech and oaks provides a rich environment for wildlife and the shadowy hollows along Mill Run are wonderful wildflower haunts. The property is forever protected by a scenic conservation easement and due to the easement benefits, the taxes on the land per year are estimated to be $133.59 per year (2020).
Mill Run Valley is the ideal property for nature lovers and outdoors people who enjoy hiking and exploring. There are several excellent hidden homesites that are easily accessible via the old roadbeds. A small open plain along Mill Run provides enough open space for gardening and growing or a few head of livestock.
Mill Run Valley’s driveway is located off of Bessie Bell Mountain Road in the Castleton area in the central part of Rappahannock County. Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. The Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive are 25 minutes away, providing one of the country’s most scenic drives and many miles of hiking trails. The popular Town of Sperryville is less than 15 minutes away where you will find a supply of wonderful groceries at the Corner Store, and great places to eat and drink: Before and After Coffee Shop, RPK Pizza, Pen Druid Brewing, Hopkins Ordinary Ale Works as well as many fun shops.
