Welcome to Hillandale! A 6 bedroom, 3 bathroom farmhouse located on 13 acres with a scenic spring-fed pond. A perfect location for family gatherings, large groups attending the many wedding venues nearby, wine tours, bicyclists coming from DC on the W&OD bike trail and more. Originally a 500 acre dairy farm, Hillandale retains the original calfing barn, smokehouse, spring house and other outbuildings. The original two room stone structure in the center of the house dates to 1774, with additions added on over time. As such, many rooms have very low ceilings and doorways - so tall folks please watch your head! There is access to Franklin Park, and it's hiking trails and bridal path, land that originally belonged to Hillandale directly across the street. Downtown Purcellville with its shops, restaurants, craft breweries and distillery is minutes away. Purcellville is also the start point of the W&OD Trail, a bike trail that runs all the way to Washington, DC and is formerly a train line that carried dairy from Hillandale to the White House in the 1930s. The surrounding area is home to many wineries, craft breweries and tourist destinations including the Appalachian Trail and Shenandoah River/Shenandoah National Park.
