Welcome to historic Rockburn Farm. Tucked along a quiet gravel road is this idyllic 132-acre horse farm anchored by a classic 10,000+ square foot estate house originally built in 1828 by the Glascock family and lovingly restored by the current owner. Located within minutes of the historic villages of both Middleburg and Upperville, this farm is ideally situated in the heart of Virginia horse and hunt country. The property is within 45 minutes of Dulles International airport and an hour to downtown Washington DC. A property with the historic provenance such as this does not come on the market very often. This is a rare opportunity to live in one of the Middleburg areas most prominent estates.

- The preeminent stone manor house has had many additions over time added by previous owners such as Hubert B. Phipps and Thomas Mellon Evans. With no details spared, it now boasts 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and 8 fireplaces with stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Notable Washington DC architect Merle Thorpe oversaw the extensive renovations and the house offers an understated elegance that combines both formal rooms along with comfortable family spaces. The large portico off the back of the house provides a wonderful area for entertaining.
- The surrounding gardens and plantings were brought to life by landscape architect Michael V. Barlett and by local landscape designer Nicole Seiss. Dotted amongst mature hardwood trees are antique stone walls with lush garden beds, an ornamental water garden, boxwood parterre and a pond. Near the main house is a two-story log cabin and a one room stone summer kitchen. The property is located within the Cromwell’s Run Historic District and is protected by a Virginia Outdoors Foundation (VOF) Conservation Easement.

- When owned by Hubert B. Phipps, the property was designed into both a thriving thoroughbred operation, sending top price getting yearlings to Saratoga, as well a successful commercial Hereford cattle operation. Then in the early '80's, Mark and Kitty Hardin bought the farm and continued its prominence as a top breeder of Thoroughbreds. They stood such stallions as Val de l'Orne, Cefis, Linkage, and Quadratic. The farm features two separate barns each with 15-stalls, tack rooms, feed rooms, wash stalls and haylofts. There are over 12 fenced paddocks with 5 run-in sheds. The property is located within the famed Piedmont hunt territory with tremendous ride out. Other outbuildings include four separate tenant houses (one houses the farm manager), a greenhouse with a workshop and another equipment shed.
