About the Property

Old Firehouse Hill was the original homeplace of Charlie Gasch, one of Castleton’s largest landowners and most community spirited citizens. He built the old farmhouse and then realizing the community needed a fire department, he erected the original Castleton Firehouse adjacent to his home. Now the farmhouse and old firehouse have been remodeled, restored and repurposed as a fantastic family compound with a pool, pond, lovely landscaping and lush lawns. It is quiet, private and the night sky is aglow with the milky way.

The original c. 1912 farmhouse has been enlarged to accommodate a gourmet kitchen, generous great room and outdoor spaces that beckon with gardens, shade and cool breezes. This newer portion of the home has high ceilings, skylights and wide windows for an expansive airy atmosphere. The kitchen has a 4-burner gas range, granite countertops, a double wall oven, wood cabinets and a walk-in  pantry with plenty of storage.

The original portion of the old farmhouse includes a splendid main floor master suite, complete with its own washer & dryer, and a comfortable den/office with fireplace. Up an ingeniously painted staircase, there are two more bedrooms, a full bath and a laundry room. Thoughtful updates, additions, and improvements have been made to the home over the years. This 100-year old  home has old-world charm, but has the modern conveniences  of ample closet space and Geothermal Heat Pumps. Geothermal Heat Pumps are economically and ecologically-friendly- it provides heating and cooling at a price that is one-third less than standard heat pumps .

The old firehouse has been updated and cleverly converted into a three-bedroom pool/guest house with a petite kitchen, dining area, two & a half bathrooms and a washer & dryer. The pool is surrounded by a wide terrace for sitting, sunning and hanging out around the pool.

The grounds around the house include sweeping lawns sprinkled with mature shade trees, flowering shrubs and delightful gardens of perennials and cut flowers. The lawn leads to picturesque pond with an island that provides a sanctuary for birds and waterfowl.

The 24 acre property is a pleasing mix of woodlands and hay fields that is an ideal habitat for wildlife, birds and native plants. With an interesting topography and walking trails, it is an enjoyable environment for exploring, walking and experiencing nature.

Old Firehouse Hill is located in the central part of Rappahannock County near the village of Castleton. Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. There are wineries and breweries, great restaurants and cafes, antique stores, farms and orchards, and much more. Looking for cultural activities? Visit one of the many art galleries, attend a play or a concert at one of the theaters, or visit the Rappahannock Historical Society’s museum.

Located about an hour and a half from Washington, DC, and about thirty minutes from Warrenton, Old Firehouse Hill is about 70 miles and 50 years from Washington.
