About the Property

This is the best deal on land we’ve seen in Rappahannock County in many years! Thorn Woods is 62.8 acres for $225,000 or just under $3,600 per acre. This is by far the lowest per acre price for land in Rappahannock county. There are two lots included in the 62.8 acres, which adds even more value.

Thorn Woods is a secluded property that is ideal for explorers, hunters and folks who just want peace and quiet. The property is rolling woodlands with about two cleared acres, just enough for a cabin in the woods. The clearing is on a gentle knoll that descends to Blackwater Creek, a wide strong stream that flows into the Hazel River. With more clearing, there would be excellent mountain views.

The forest is oaks, pines and poplars interspersed with dogwoods and hickory trees. In a few years the poplars will have considerable timber value. On the northern slopes the forest floor is a mat of ferns and running pine. With a combination of cleared and forested land and ample water, it is the ideal habitat for birds, small game, deer and bear.

The property is accessed via a right-of-way that crosses a small ford, climbs through the forest, crosses under a power line and enters the clearing, where the property begins. Four wheel drive is recommended.

Rappahannock County is home to the world-renowned Inn at Little Washington, along with numerous other restaurants and wineries; Castleton in Performance, which brings world-class events each month; and many art galleries and antique stores. In Sperryville, there is a popular entrance point to Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive. The property is convenient to Culpeper for shopping, dining and medical services. The old Main Street includes an interesting assortment of unusual shops and excellent restaurants. Culpeper has rail service to Washington DC and Amtrak service to cities along the Southern Crescent route from New York to New Orleans. Turkery Ridge Retreat is only about 90 minutes from downtown DC and about 1 hour from Dulles Airport.
