Ravensden Rock Overlook
Small lots are a rarity in Rappahnnock County, especially small lots with the potential for big views. These two lots, which add up to about 0.88 acres, are perched at about 1,300 feet near the top of Chester Gap. There is the potential for a fabulous view towards the eastern foothills and Ravensden Rock (elev. 1,983 feet) in Fauquier County. Chester Gap Cellars, known for excellent viognier, adjoins along two sides and their vines will be your neighbor. A construction permit for a three-bedroom septic was issued in 2014. While it is inside the Fox Pines neighborhood, these two parcels are not included in the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions that apply to the other parcels and there is no HOA.
