Rockburn Farm - Tucked along a quiet gravel road is this idyllic 132-acre farm anchored by a classic 10,000+ square foot estate house originally built in 1828 by the Glascock family and lovingly restored by the current owner. The preeminent stone manor house has had many additions over time added by previous owners such as Hubert B. Phipps and Thomas Mellon Evans. With no details spared, it now boasts 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and 8 fireplaces with stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Notable Washington DC architect Merle Thorpe oversaw the extensive renovations and the house offers an understated elegance that combines both formal rooms along with comfortable family spaces. The large portico off the back of the house provides a wonderful area for entertaining. The surrounding gardens and plantings were brought to life by landscape architect Michael V. Barlett and by local landscape designer Nicole Seiss. Dotted amongst mature hardwood trees are old stone walls with lush garden beds, an ornamental water garden, boxwood parterre and a pond. Near the main house is a two-story log cabin and a one room stone summer kitchen. Other outbuildings include four tenant houses, a greenhouse, two separate horse barns with 15 stalls each, over 12 fenced paddocks many with run-in sheds and two workshops. Located within the Piedmont hunt territory with tremendous ride out. The property is located within the Cromwell’s Run Historic District and is protected by a Virginia Outdoors Foundation (VOF) Conservation Easement. A property with the historic provenance such as this does not come on the market very often. This is a rare opportunity to live in one of the Middleburg areas most prominent estates.
