About the Property

Willow Pond Farm is the quintessential country retreat.  Only 70 miles from DC, this home feels like it is a 1,000 miles away from the city.  Even with its perfect  privacy both Sperryville and Culpeper are only minutes away.  The three bedroom country farmhouse is classic Virginia living at its finest.  Set back from the quiet country road, the home sits amidst a sea of hay fields and exudes a quiet country charm.  With three board fencing lining the drive to the home, you can feel your worries fall away as you drive up to the home.

Built in 1915, the farmhouse has been lovingly updated to ensure that it retains its old Virginia charm.  A wide front porch, perfect for lazing away a country day, greets you as you come up to the home.  The porch looks out to the front hay field which has been described by a local farmer as “the best hay field in the county.”  A classic 2 over 2 style, the home opens into a large foyer with stairs leading to the second floor.  Homes were built this way to maximize interior light and usable space.  The wood paneling that lines the stairway is perfectly preserved and adds to the old world charm of the home.  A living room, which makes a great office or spare bedroom, sits on the right side of the foyer.

Across the hall is a large dining room with plenty of natural light.  A family room has been added next to the dining room.  With a fireplace tucked in the corner, a large picture window and french doors that lead to the back deck, this room is always bright and cheerful regardless of the season.  Behind the dining room is a nicely equipped kitchen that makes the most of its space.  This room was clearly an addition at some point in the homes history and the exposed clapboard siding add to its charm.  A mud room, a necessity in any country home, was added next to the kitchen.  The downstairs is completed with a full bath.

Upstairs are three bedrooms.  The front bedroom, above the living room, has an en-suite bath and gets light from both sides of the home.  The large master bedroom sits across the hall.  A third bedroom, perfect for a young child sits above the kitchen behind the master bedroom.  A set of butler’s stairs lead from the third bedroom down to the kitchen (perfect for late night snacking).

The home is situated on a gentle knoll and is surrounded by open hay fields.  A scattering of outbuildings, a necessity for any farm, surround the back of the home and add to the usability of the property.  A short walk from the home is the namesake Willow Pond.

Willow Pond is conveniently located, just off of Sperryville Pike on the way to Culpeper and is within minutes of the world-renowned Castleton in Performance. Attend one of the monthly events, then make the quick drive to the five-star Inn at Little Washington for an unsurpassed dining experience. If you prefer to hike, take a short drive to enjoy Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive, with its miles of hiking trails and scenic vistas. Then visit some of the county‚Äôs many farms and wineries to craft your own feast and sit on the front porch.  In addition to world-class performances and dining, Rappahannock County is home to wineries, breweries, a distillery, numerous art galleries and antique stores, and many other interesting shops and attractions.

Willow Pond is a short drive from DC, but miles away in rest and relaxation.  This home would also make a great hunt box or small farmette anyone who wants to fully embrace the country lifestyle.
