The Homestead on O’Bannons Mill
Straddling the county line between Rappahannock and Culpeper, the Homestead on O’Bannons Mill Road offers endless possibilities. With three distinct pastures, the property would make a magnificent farmette or small horse farm. A creek wanders through the middle of the property which would be perfect for watering your animals, or would make an excellent pond site. The property is already divided into five lots making development a snap. Outstanding views to the southwest enhance the overall charm of the homestead.
Nestled among the trees, the three bedroom split level home is an oasis of tranquility. The main floor features a large living room that looks out to the front yard and the mountains behind them. With full southern exposure, this room is always warm and filled with light. From the living room, the house flows seamlessly into the dining room. The dining room features a large bay window that frames a majestic view of Old Rag Mountain. A 12′ x 18′ deck, perfect for wiling away the summer hours, is accessible from the dining room. The kitchen is large enough to be an eat-in kitchen or the serious chef could add in extra counter space and storage.
Down the hall and away from the main entertaining area are the three main floor bedrooms. The master bedroom, replete with a master bath and plenty of closet space, lies on the northeast corner of the home. The bedroom looks out to the woods behind the home and offers complete serenity. Across the hall are the second and third bedrooms which both have southern exposure.
The lower level of the home features a large bonus room/bedroom. Behind the bonus room is the utility room. Down the hall from the bedroom is a small office. The balance of the lower level is a giant family room which would make a great pool room or home theater area. The attached 2 car garage is accessible from family room. The house features a wood-burning furnace already ducted into the heating system that can be used for auxiliary heat.
The homestead features several additional buildings. Behind the main house is a large morton building complete with electricity and water which would make a great workshop. The property also features two barns and the old homestead (built circa 1898).
The property is rife with opportunity. There are five tax parcels included in the sale so development would be a breeze. Four of the lots are in Culpeper County and the fifth is in Rappahannock County virtually guaranteeing that the western portion of the views won’t be developed. High speed internet is available from the new Virginia Broadband tower to the south.
O’Bannons Mill Road is only 10 minutes from downtown Culpeper and about 15 minutes from Sperryville. This ideal location allows an easy commute to jobs and schools in Culpeper and a short drive to everything thisthe 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. 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 or full time residence.
