Less than an hour from the heart of Northern Virginia, you’ll find vast green space, rolling hills and a country-like atmosphere that transfers you to a scene from the past. What you’ll see is Hunt Country, an area tucked between city life and the Blue Ridge Mountains, known for its equestrian-filled landscape, traditions and farms.
One farm in particular, spanning across more than 300 acres of land, is currently listed on the housing market with Washington Fine Properties for just under $8 million. Located about half a mile from Middleburg, Hickory Tree Farm includes six houses with one featured main residence with a saltwater pool at 2120 Burrland Lane, The Plains.
The main draw for future homeowners in this region comes from the equestrian facilities featuring five barns, four of which are Georgian style designed by renowned architect William Lawrence Bottomley in the early 1900s. In total, there are 83 stalls among the five barns, as well as large fields and a track for racing. Hickory Tree Farm has even been home to several famous thoroughbred horses over the years, including Hagley, a member of the Virginia Equine Hall of Fame.
While for sale, the entire property is protected by a Virginia Outdoors Foundation Conservation Easement, meaning that it will “remain protected as open space in perpetuity, regardless of who purchases it,” according to Jason McGarvey, a representative of the VOF.
