Fox Hill Farm is beautifully sited toward the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountain range. The wrap around deck looks to the mountains on one side of the contemporary house and to the Dressage & Jumping arenas on the other side.

The property was developed by a true horse woman who laid out pastures and built a truly functional stable. Today's owner is a foxhunter and finds the location close to several Shenandoah Valley hunts and two hunts near Charlottesville. The Virginia Horse Center is just down I-81/I-64 when she wants to watch an A-Rated horse show.

The charming college town of Staunton (Mary Baldwin College) also hosts a distinguished private secondary schools with both boarding and day programs (Stuart Hall). The town's intellectual mix of faculty, the many theatres, creative restaurants, and its summer music festivals is so refreshing.

The Blackfriars Playhouse at the American Shakespeare Center is the world's only recreation of Shakespeare's indoor theatre. Performances are year round, and widely acclaimed.

The Loft Family Room has stupendous views out over the mountains and a gas fireplace to stay cozy on winter evenings.

The walk out to a patio lower level has been turned into an in-law suite or au-pair suite. But it can also be a place for the teenagers to have their own bedrooms away from their parents!

The house is sided in Hardy-Plank for extremely long wear. The floors on the main level are hardwood in the main entertaining areas and very tasteful carpet in the Master Bedroom and two guest rooms.

There is a fenced- in dog yard, a fenced- in vegetable garden with Blackberry bushes, and a front lawn planted in mature cherry, apple, peach and plum trees.

The concrete block stable holds 5 large stalls with rubber mats and a large tractor bay at the end with its own sliding door to the outside. Two large fields share a long run in shed, the field closest to the stable has one run-in shed, and it opens to a second field by the stable. The two blue stone arenas serve for jumping and dressage and are fenced. Several cross country jumps dot the pastures and jumps are placed in the fence lines.

I can e-mail brochures upon request.
