Stonyhurst is a property with a storied background. The house is sited on 94 acres of prime, historic fox hunting land, with significant frontage on what is considered to be one of Northern Virginia’s loveliest country roads, Foxcroft Road. Just minutes from the Town of Middleburg, and just down the hill from Glenwood Park, home of Virginia’s oldest steeplechase meeting, the Middleburg Spring Races, Hunt Country Sotheby’s International Realty is delighted to present this exceptional example of country living.
Originally built during the 1890’s by the Duffy family, Stonyhurst was acquired in the early 2000’s by its current owners who saved it from being bought and developed into a housing estate. They subsequently placed it into conservation easement so that, in perpetuity, it’s 94 acres may only be subdivided once, with the construction of just one additional residence (per restrictions).

- When the current owners purchased Stonyhurst, the house was considerably run down. Commissioning the Washington D.C. firm of Donald Lococo Architects, they lovingly and carefully returned it to its original splendor while at the same time modernizing the underlying infrastructure. In the process, the renovation garnered two awards from the American Institute of Architecture. Meanwhile, Rosemary R. Howe Interiors, also of Washington D.C., was brought in to faithfully redesign the inside in such a way as to retain the character of this lovely old house while infusing it with twenty first century accoutrements.
- What we see today is a delightful American Colonial Revival Country Farmhouse, in pristine condition, centered on a large parcel of rolling land within a much sought after part of Virginia, yet within easy reach of the nation’s capital. It is ideally suited for both equestrian pursuits and outdoors activities, as a principal residence or weekend escape.
- Almost 95 acres of prime Middleburg fox hunting land, just one mile from the Town of Middleburg with rebuilt original stacked stone walls and horse fencing.
