UPPERVILLE, Va., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A picturesque, 140-acre northern Virginia estate boasting state-of-the-art equestrian facilities, a collection of three residences and beautiful grounds including rolling hills and multiple ponds, aptly named Horsefields Farm, will be sold to the highest bidder by NYC-based Concierge Auctions. Originally listed for $14.9 million, the auction will be conducted without reserve on April 26th in cooperation with Rob Carney of TTR Sotheby's International Realty.
"Living in Miami full-time, Horsefields Farm has been a peaceful country retreat for my family. We love the grounds, the special attention that was given to its design and of course, its privacy. We hate to sell, but honestly, we are ready to move on to other opportunities," stated the seller, Sergio Pino. "Concierge Auctions' successful track record — particularly when it comes to the sale of estates with equestrian facilities — convinced us that they were the right team to sell Horsefields. This process is new to us, but we're already impressed with their effort. It's exciting to know that a month from now, the property will have a new owner."
Located on 140 acres, Horsefields Farm contains three fully-restored residences including an elegant stone manor main house and two fully restored guest houses. The main home has six bedrooms, six full and two half bathrooms and an expansive main level with spacious gathering spaces throughout. There is custom lighting, premium fixtures in all the fully-renovated bathrooms and elaborate custom tile work. The home includes not one but two master bedrooms, both of which have updated custom bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a reception room, a wood-paneled office, a formal dining room and both living and family rooms. Updates to all of the home's electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling and mechanical systems have been completed, elevating it into luxury living the in the 21st century. There is also a one-bedroom guest apartment above the two-car garage.
The two renovated guest houses offer a combined seven bedrooms, and both mirror the high standard of the main residence's interior. The main guest house offers three stories of spacious living including five bedrooms and four full and one half fully-updated bathrooms. Additional amenities include a gourmet kitchen, a lower-level custom home gym with fitness equipment, free weights and a rubberized floor and an outdoor pool. Located near the stone barn, the secondary guest house features hardwood flooring, a fully-updated gourmet kitchen and two additional spacious bedrooms.
The grounds contain rolling hills, seven manicured ponds and unparalleled, state-of-the-art equestrian facilities. The focal point is the exquisite all-stone main barn, encompassing 14 stalls, two wash bays, a caretaker's office, a laundry room, a full bathroom and elegant wood-paneled interior with brick flooring. The barn has been featured on the prestigious Hunt Country Stable Tour. There is also a secondary barn with 10 horse stalls and a cow barn with all-wood construction. Additionally, a caretaker's cottage with three bedrooms and a new detached garage, office and apartment building with four garage bays, a luxury guest apartment and a separate office space complete the property.
"Horsefields Farm represents the pinnacle of luxury living in Virginia. No expense was spared during the recent renovation of the home and its equestrian facilities, and the collection of structures on the property makes the estate ideal for entertaining large groups of family and friends," Carney stated. "We're excited to work with Concierge to bring international attention to what is arguably one of northern Virginia's most gorgeous estates."
