Property Description

A Rappahannock County working farm for many years, this bucolic 162 acre homestead, located in the desirable Castleton community, is reminiscent of times gone by. The entrance is a tree-lined driveway on the east side of Scrabble Road that curves around the large pond and up to the main house. Setting on a knoll overlooking the farm and beautiful Bessie Bell Mountain the traditional home is from the 1940~s, but it has more recently been improved by a new roof, new siding, and new windows. It contains approximately 1500 square feet on the main level. A second house sits surrounded by large shade trees, on approximately 17 acres of the farm that is located on the west side of Scrabble Road. Other farm buildings include 3200 square foot barn with silo, a 1200 square foot concrete building, a 900 square foot frame shed, and a large detached garage. The property has been most recently used for grazing cattle, as it is partly open and rolling, and partly wooded. Please close all gates behind you as you walk the property.This farm offers many possibilities for future owners. A cattle operation, an orchard, a vineyard, or other farming activities would keep it in its agricultural use. Large properties nearby are protected by conservation easement, so this one should qualify, too, providing possible Federal tax incentives as well as Virginia tax credits for anyone hoping to preserve the open space for future generations. With long road frontage on Scrabble Road it is also possible to divide the property into a few parcels and provide convenient access to separate homes in a family compound. The seventeen acres across the road can be sold separately but will not be sold until the main portion of the farm sells.
