Casual sophistication: a 115 acre compound for private and secured living and entertainment. Reminiscent of a quaint European village, East Leake Farms afford a picturesque setting with rolling hills engulfing a stocked lake and spring fed pond, fenced pastures, miles of riding trails and wooded areas surrounding an arrangement of historic and modern structures.
Situated midway between Charlottesville and Richmond, this rare offering is less than 40 minutes from Richmond International.
Built in 2000, the French country style main residence was significantly renovated by the current owners. The three bedroom, two and a half bath stucco and stone home reflects an appreciation for a functional family and entertaining core of the property.
Amenities are numerous in this 4700 square foot home and include five working fireplaces, a media room with indoor hot tub and sauna, a gym, oversized family room, attached oversized two car garage and a whole house generator. Recent renovations also included the restoration of a majority of the 15 historic buildings on the grounds.
Rich in history, these structures deteriorated over the years but now serve as vibrant living and entertaining spaces. As an example, a screened gazebo with a fireplace is on what was once the stone foundation for Leake’s summer home. On the same foundation is a sunken garden with original wrought iron railings and a water feature.
A cook’s cabin, a delightful 3 bedroom guest house, was originally constructed with random-width, hand-hewn oak logs which remain intact and reminf visitors of times past. Make East Leake Farm part of your family’s history!
