This spacious farmhouse, built in 1898, has been tastefully restored and updated to accommodate modern living without sacrificing the charm of history. The floors are original wood with area rugs for comfort. It is bright and airy, with open, spacious rooms and some extra smaller rooms just for fun or quiet times. The house has a calming, relaxing feel, with all the comforts of your own home. The farmhouse is a celebration of the richness of all things Virginia; its history, its vineyards, its fox hunts, the alluring charm of Old Virginia.
This house is unique in that it is a living gallery of "The Main Brace Vintage," with the artists' studio on the property. The furnishings showcase the artists' work and include eclectic antiques and hand crafted, unique wall decor, which will be constantly replaced with new artistic creations.
The house sits on 1 1/2 acres, with room to romp, yet conveniently located within five minutes of the historic town of Culpeper, a popular destination offering fine dining and shopping, antiques and local breweries.
The three bedrooms are upstairs, with two Kings and one Queen sized bed.
The kitchen is magnificent and spacious and fully equipped for cooking. The setting sun casts a warm glow in the kitchen.
The front porch is a favorite space with cozy furniture, tucked away from the road by a row of trees and hedges. It is great place for morning coffee, afternoon sweet tea or evening wine with friends and family. The back patio is also a nice retreat, to enjoy the outdoors. The driveway is paved and offers plenty of parking.
This area offers so many varied activities locally, but even more within an hour or so. Wineries abound, Civil War battlefields, The Museum of Culpeper History, the Blue Ridge Mountains for hiking and driving along the Skyline Drive. Mount Pony, an audiovisual branch of the National Library of Congress, is an archive of old and antique movies which are shown without charge, upon registering. Charlottesville is an hour away, and our nation's capitol is seventy miles.
We hope that you love our "Old Blue" house as much as we do. We have had many fun and memorable family gatherings here and look forward to more to come! Remember, Virginia is for lovers of... mountains, of wineries, of history, of finely bred horses, of great food, of getaways, of elegant old houses...
