This 72.5 acre farm is perfectly set up for cattle production. It is fenced and cross-fenced, has cattle handling corrals, ample water and lush pastures and copses of trees for shade and protection. It would also work well for other livestock, horses or row crops and small grains. Alternatively, it would be an excellent property for conversion to quail and wildlife habitat.
The property is mostly open field with a gentle roll to it. Two tree lined streams (with multiple branches) meander through the property. The streams are a magnet for wildlife and game birds ensuring a cornucopia of wild game will wander through the property. With its rolling topography, there are several locations that would make fabulous pond sites that could be several acres each. Above the potential pond sites are several knolls that would make excellent home sites with fabulous views of Castle Mountain and Turkey Ridge to the North.
The north eastern section of the property is a stand of mature timber (about 13 acres). With full southern exposure, there are several great home sites sitting on the edge of the forest that would ensure perfect privacy.
The property has an excellent location on Scrabble Road, the property is only 15 minutes from downtown Culpeper and 10 minutes from Sperryville. This ideal location allows a short drive to everything this area has to offer. Rappahannock, Madison and Culpeper counties have a wealth of farms and farmers markets, antique stores, wineries, restaurants, art galleries, historical sites, and much more. The Thornton Gap Entrance to the Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive is 20 minutes away, providing one of the country’s most scenic drives and many miles of hiking trails. Located just over an hour and a half from Washington, DC, and just over an hour from Charlottesville, the property is well situated for a weekend getaway.
