Property description

A rare and unique property offering nearly 18 acres just minutes from Central Park on historic River Road. The original house dates to the 1850s with major remodeling including the addition of a 1 BR Guest House, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, sauna and more. Gun emplacements and trenches from the Civil War lie behind the house where during the Chancellorsville campaign more than 1,500 Confederate troops were stationed at the house because of its vantage point overlooking the river. Nicknamed The Ridge the property offers views of the Rappahannock River, open fields, woods and a stream running along the property edge. Truly a one-of-a-kind listing with awesome potential to become your private dream estate without being far from town. Bring your horses and follow the trails around the property and down along the stream while enjoying the sounds of nature. About a 10 minute drive to Olde Town Fredericksburg where you can take advantage of shopping, restaurants, night life or catch the train, The Ridge is ready for you to make it your private oasis where only your imagination limits the possibilities.
