Fine Shenandoah Valley historic farm for sale near the village of Newport on 80 acres. This renovated historic brick house makes a grand presentation as you approach the driveway. Here you will find a wide two-story center hall with fireplaces in each of the four rooms on the first floor, and in each of the four bedrooms on the second floor. Beautiful woodwork in all rooms, and original wide heart pine floors all over.
Heavenly views from every window. Entertain your guests on the back brick patio surrounded by an Irish-design stone wall. There is also a fenced raised bed vegetable garden and a quiet walled-in secret garden. The solar paneling which covers the hay barn roof provides a large part of the electrical needs of the farm.
The horse barn, large riding ring, seven pastures, and miles of trails make this an ideal horse property. Ride your horse or hike up to the trail on the ridge behind the house to marvel at some very old trees and enjoy spectacular views of distant mountains.
There are also several strong springs, one of which flows from a small cave entrance. The two-story shop/studio attached to the two-car garage could be converted into a nice living space.
All in all, this is a dream of a historic circa 1855 country farm. Imposing as you approach it and yet private and endlessly comfortable. Annually taxes $3134.
