Plantation Farm tucked in the heart of central Virginia consists of 35+/- acres of beautiful rolling fields with the Blue Ridge Mountains off in the distance providing for a very pictureque setting. Currently Plantation Farm is a small equestrian operation with nine paddocks, all with access to automatic waterers, fenced with four board and/or HorseGuard fencing. The newly-built three-stall Morton barn has hot and cold water, a heated tack room, heat lamps above the wash area as well as a large conditioned hayloft above. The stable is protected with a fire detection system. The rear of the stable provides for a nice covered storage area for a truck and horse trailer.
The unique and historic home offers a beautiful gourmet kitchen with an Asko dishwasher, four-burner Viking stove, a warming drawer in addition to a handy granite center island. A large refrigerator and pantry round out the conveniences found throughout the kitchen.
The rest of the home maintains the charm from yesteryear with warm pine floor, bible and cross doors, beautiful mantels and private staircases to access each of the two bedrooms upstairs. One of the second level bedrooms has a private bath.
The masterbedroom is located on the main floor and has access to a small room which is currently used as an office, but could be turned in to a master bathroom, large closet or nursery.
There are three fireplaces within the home. Two are located on the main level, with the third in familyroom located in the basement. The basement has an intermediate level room that contains three walls of windows which provide for a bright and cheerful setting.
According to a written desription of the property in "The Courthouse Burned..." One section of the home was built in 1741 and a second building was erected in the 1840's then later joined by a "betweenry" or breezeway. When the doors are open, even on the hottest of days, there is always a cool and pleasant breeze to keep the home pleasant and cool.
The newly constructed equestrian facilities at Plantation Farm were built so that one person can perform all the operations of bringing the horses in and out as well as with the horses' safety in mind. The facilities include a Centaur riding ring (100' x 160') and a four-board 60' round pen. All the waterers have independent shut-off valves and each paddock has access to a run-in shed. This farm is truly one of the few on the market that is "move-in" ready!
