Virginia Equestrian Estate Heading to Auction

Apr 01, 2014, 12:23 ET from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

LEESBURG, Va., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A 72-acre equestrian estate with an elegant 7,929-square-foot Tudor home, eight-stall barn, and rolling pastures in the scenic hills of Virginia's Rappahannock County will sell in a court-ordered auction April 26.

"This remarkable estate has every luxury feature you can imagine, with some of the best equestrian facilities you'll see anywhere," said Stephen Karbelk, CAI, AARE, auctioneer and Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, which will manage the sale for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

The auction will begin at 11 a.m. at the property.

Located in Huntly, Va., at 64 Gordon Clan Lane and 14 Little Long Mountain, the property has significant frontage along Zachary Taylor Highway (Rt. 522) and is conveniently located 10 minutes south of Front Royal.

"Nearly every point on this property has breathtaking views of the hills, located among the state's award-winning wineries and exceptional restaurants, including the Inn at Little Washington, one of the nation's most acclaimed five-star restaurants," said Karbelk.

The Dwight Matthews-designed home has five bedrooms, five baths, a heated indoor pool, a sauna, and exquisite woodwork throughout the house. The large deck looks out over the expansive mountain views. 

The estate will be offered in three parcels – the  home on 24.84 acres, the barn on 28.79 acres and a third parcel of 18.83 acres, which is partially fenced with open pasture and trees.

"Someone could buy all three parcels and have a remarkable estate. But the parcels stand alone, and each will be attractive in its own right. For example, the parcel with the barn has office space, a unique stone carriage house for showcasing horses and hosting parties, and a large outdoor riding arena with cross fencing and water hookups, with significant frontage on Rt. 522, as well as two homes that could be used by the owner or rented out," said Karbelk.  The 18.83 parcel with the pasture also fronts on Rt. 522.

Open houses are scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 13, and from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 19. The property may also be viewed by appointment.
