About Virginia


Virginia is a wonderful Horse Country - where scenic horse trails, elite competitions, thrilling races, hunts and the Chincoteague ponies have established Virginia as one of the best destinations for equine activities and events. Horse enthusiasts can find all breeds of horses, used for all purposes from trail riding to competition, to breeding and hunting, racing and training, all across Virginia. More than a half million horse lovers and admirers travel to Virginia each year to enjoy and participate in numerous events, shows, hunts, races, and trail rides.

The history of America is closely tied to that of Virginia, particularly during the Colonial period, Jamestown founded in 1607, was the first permanent English settlement in North America and slavery was introduced there in 1619. The state is called the “Mother of Presidents” because eight U.S. presidents were born there.

The climate of Virginia becomes increasingly warmer and more humid farther south and east.Seasonal extremes vary from average lows of 26 °F (−3 °C) in January to average highs of 86 °F (30 °C) in July. The Atlantic ocean has a strong effect on eastern and southeastern coastal areas of the state.

Virginia is divided into 95 counties and 39 independent cities, which both operate the same way since independent cities are considered to be County-equivalent. This method of treating cities and counties equally is unique to Virginia.


Fairfax County is the most populous locality in Virginia, with over one million residents. Neighboring Loudon County is both the fastest-growing county in Virginia and has the highest median household income ($114,204) in the USA as of 2010.  Virginia's economy is balanced, with diverse sources of income, including government and military, farming, and business. Virginia has 4.1 million civilian workers, and one-third of the jobs are in the Service Sector. The unemployment rate was 6.3% as of April 2011. Technology became the state's highest-grossing export in 2006, surpassing its traditional top exports of coal and tobacco combined.

Agriculture occupies 24% of the land in Virginia. As of 2007, about 357,000 Virginian jobs were in agriculture, with over 47,000 farms, averaging 171 acres (0.27 sq mi; 0.69 km2), in a total farmland area of 8.1 million acres (12,656 sq mi; 32,780 km2).

Providing horse power in the fields and transportation for goods and people, horses were the backbone of the first Virginia Colonies. Today, the role of horses has changed dramatically, yet horses are still a vital economic factor. Some 700 equine events are held in Virginia each year, attracting over 800,000 participants and spectators who spend more than $167 million at these events. The average Virginia horse owner spends $2,969 per horse yearly. Horse owners spend $505 million in annual expenses and support approximately 20,000 jobs statewide.

Welcome Home to Mountain View Farm

Castleton, Rappahannock County, Virginia

Welcome home. Mountain View Farm is your escape to the quiet, bucolic Rappahannock County countryside. With stunning Blue Ridge Mountain views, rolling pastures, and an open floor plan log home featuring soaring ceilings, there is a lot to fall in love with. Mountain View Farm can be your relaxing country getaway or full-time dream home. From the moment you drive into the lane and look out across the open pastures and towards the mountains, you will know this is a special property. From there you will spy the charming log home, set on a small rise in the lower field. Nearby is the large horse barn, riding arena, and more fenced pasture. Pull up in front of the home on the circular driveway, and you are greeted by a sprawling covered porch that runs the length of the front facade. Enter the leaded-glass front door and the owner’s attention to detail in building this home becomes immediately apparent. In front of you is a fabulous wall of windows that lets in the view of Battle Mountain and Little Battle Mountain. In keeping with the scale of these windows, the field stone fireplace reaches to the top of the soaring, beamed cathedral ceiling. While admiring the impressive ceiling you will also notice the upper floor balcony that overlooks the great room. The main floor’s open floor plan, with its gleaming solid bamboo floors, includes a little library off the great room, a gourmet kitchen, and a large dining room. Mountain View Farm’s gourmet kitchen has a glorious expanse of custom-made cherry cabinets and granite counters, including a long bar counter. There are two wall ovens, a propane cooktop, and a beautiful and unique farmhouse sink. A corner display cabinet with a glass door is complete with its own lighting to allow you to showcase your prized collections. The dishwasher and French door refrigerator have matching cherry panels as well. Just off the kitchen is a roomy butler’s pantry, adding even more storage possibilities. The dining room is past the kitchen and bar and has plenty of room for a large dining table and a sideboard or hutch. There is wainscoting, a chair rail, and a lovely wood beamed ceiling. From the dining room, an extra-wide glass sliding door opens to the roomy back deck. The perfect shady spot for afternoon grilling, the deck faces Battle Mountain and affords a bird’s eye view of the riding arena and some of the pastures. The upstairs “loft,” with its warm pine floors, has a seating area that overlooks the great room and has its own cathedral ceiling and a skylight. The enormous “loft” bedroom likewise has a beamed cathedral ceiling and a beautiful view of the upper pastures and the Blue Ridge Mountains beyond. This room has roughed-in plumbing and plenty of space, so creating a dreamy master bath would be a snap. On the lower floor, extra-high ceilings, large windows, and more solid bamboo flooring echo the expansive feeling of the rest of the home. The lower floor bedroom has a wall of windows and a glass sliding door that opens to what was intended to be the future stone patio. Some of the beautiful slabs of slate had already been delivered but life had different plans and the project was not completed. This large bedroom has a cozy and convenient propane fireplace and a dressing room with two large closets. The dressing room has enough space that it could also be used as an office and it has a sliding door that opens to the future patio as well. The lower floor is completed by a full bath with a custom cherry vanity, and a laundry/utility room with a propane dryer. From the laundry room, there is access to the garage, which has an automatic overhead door in the rear of the home. Additional special features of the home include a furnace air filter and whole-house humidifier, separate electrical panel for generator hookup, and a WiFi thermostat that can be controlled remotely. There is also an oversize 80 gallon water heater and a 50 amp hookup for an outdoor hot tub. In addition to creating the ideal country retreat for himself, the owner also did so for his horses. The 8-stall horse barn has a roomy center aisle and a beautiful wood interior. All of the stalls have classic sliding doors and rubber stall mats for your horses’ comfort. There is a large tack and feed room with exterior and interior doors, a wash stall with hot and cold water, and a utility room to keep everyday grooming supplies within easy reach, complete with a handy utility sink. Just down the hill from the barn is a 70 ft by 200 ft riding arena with electricity and frost-free water lines already in place, plus 1 1/4 inch pipes in place to add an arena sprinkler system. There are four separately fenced pastures, each with electricity and frost-free hydrants. All of the fencing is Centaur flexible rail system with safety gates. Train in the riding arena, ride out on the quiet gravel road, go trail riding in Shenandoah National Park, or join one of the nearby local hunts. Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. Nearby Shenandoah National Park is home to scenic Skyline Drive with its overlooks as well as many miles of trails. There are wineries and breweries, great restaurants and cafes, antique stores, farms and orchards, and much more. Looking for cultural activities? Visit one of the many art galleries, attend a play or a concert at one of the theaters, or visit the Rappahannock Historical Society’s museum. Near Flint Hill, Sperryville and “little” Washington, and convenient to Warrenton and Culpeper, Mountain View Farm is ideally situated for full-time residents or weekenders alike. Located less than two hours from Washington, DC, and about an hour and a half from Charlottesville, the property is within an easy driving distance for weekend getaways.
