Property description

An extraordinary offering in the heart of the Keswick Hunt

Just prior to the year 2000, three 100 acre parcels were created from the stunning 18th century plantation known as Windholme in southern Orange County, Virginia. A carefully conceived conservation easement was created to protect each parcel and the remainder from further development.

Plans were drawn by noted architect J. Kestner (and are available) for a most unique home sited to enjoy the long reaching views of this unspoiled Piedmont valley. Repurposing materials from an 19th century mill found in the Blue Ridge mountains, a dramatic four bedroom post and beam home was created exuding rustic character at every turn while benefitting from modern technology and efficiencies.

For the horse enthusiast the situation could not be more opportune. The previous owner who was active with the Keswick hunt used the property as a hunt box and created an excellent five stall stable with a two bedroom apartment attached. There are several paddocks for turn out and marvelous riding opportunities on and around Dutchmont.

Dutchmont is comprised of 100 acres of prime Virginia farm land. It has approximately 75 acres in gently rolling pasture and hay land with the balance in mature hardwood forest reaching to the top of a small mountain. The property is well watered with several springs, a stream and a large pond of several acres stocked with gamefish. Except for the horse paddocks, the farm is currently maintained by a neighboring farmer who makes hay and grazes cattle on the land.

Dutchmont is located less than 10 minutes from the charming, historic town of Gordonsville and about 30 minutes from Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. Washington, DC is about two hours north.

Home Features

  • The home is a most unique C. 2000 post and beam creation which used reclaimed timbers and flooring from a 19th century Virginia mill. The home exudes character from the hand hewn beams and wide plank flooring while functioning as a thoroughly modern home with an open floor plan, geo thermal HVAC, 2022, kitchen and baths and a stunning first floor master suite. With four bedrooms and three and one half baths the home is spacious and inviting with an unrivaled setting overlooking a private valley in the Blue Ridge foothills without another home in sight. Additional improvements include a five stall stable with an attached two bedroom apartment, a garage/shop building and an equipment barn. The current owners have just completed a thorough renovation of the main residence and sadly, must sell due to unforeseen circumstances.
