Big parcels growing crops or grazing beef cattle just west of Warrenton surround "ROCK SPRINGS". Historically it owned a lot of that land, but today it sits on 22 acres.

The entry hall opens either to a gracious living room with a stone fireplace, or into a big formal dining room. Like many houses of that era, the hall goes straight thru to a back porch which is now enclosed as a "mud room". Also on this floor is a den and kitchen/family room. Upstairs are three large bedrooms. The Master Bedroom has an attached bath and a stone fireplace. There is a hall bath serving the other two bedrooms.

Stables with twin wash stalls, stairs to the loft, tack & feed rooms and six box stalls are, of course, a new addition to the older barn next door. The currant owners built a long run-in shed off the back of the older barn and use its insides for storage. There is also a sand arena for dressage or a jump course across the driveway from the stable.

Last winter (2014) the septic system and oil fired hot water furnace at the main house were completely replaced, and its plaster ceilings and walls were recently plastered and repainted.

The newly restored "guest cottage" is the oldest structure and was built c.1848 and the main house was built c.1900 according to Culpeper County records.

The cute guesthouse, which can also be used as a tenant cottage for extra income and/or farm help, is charmingly decorated. There are two bedrooms upstairs which share a bath and there is a half bath between the kitchen and the study.

Rock Springs is a lovely small farm which offers its owners and horses serenity and large open spaces within minutes of either Warrenton or Culpeper.
