Lovers of the outdoors, this is the indoors to call home. Sun-drenched and spacious, this 11,000+ square foot beauty was designed and built by the owners on land bequeathed to their family in 1780 by Lord Fairfax and surveyed by none other than George Washington prior to his becoming the country’s first President. Lindhaven, as the property is known, boasts 8,097 square feet of finished living space and breathtaking, panoramic views of the Allegheny Mountains, grassy farmland, and the George Washington National Forest from every single one of its 167 windows. A family farm until 1980, Lindhaven sits on 93 pristine acres complete with a farmhouse, spring house, and outbuildings, all of which were built by the owners’ ancestors in the late 1700s. A stocked pond and occasional visits from deer and wild turkeys add to the property’s peaceful tranquility. At present, a neighbor farms the land. Used for the past several years as a weekend retreat, Lindhaven features a soaring, twenty-foot-high ceiling above its glorious entrance hall – designed specifically for celebrations with family and friends, holidays, and dancing – an open, airy, approximately 1,000 square foot loft space, four bedrooms (two on the main floor, two on the second level), seven bathrooms, five fireplaces, (two of which are in the Owner’s Suite), a family room, a formal living room and dining room, and an entertainment room with a wet bar. In addition, a natural gas pipeline runs beneath the property allowing all the major systems of the home– hot water heaters, heating system, fireplaces, stove, and ovens – to run off of it. As expansive as Lindhaven is, there’s still room to grow: the unfinished, 2,997 square foot basement would be the perfect spot for a wine cellar and cigar lounge, or a library for one’s rare book collection, or a trophy room, or… the possibilities are endless! Just over two hours from Washington, D.C., and ninety-minutes from Dulles, Lindhaven is commutable without being too close to the hustle and bustle of the city and the noise of the suburbs. It’s also just minutes away from several wineries, one brewery, the four-season Bryce Resort and its private airport, and the regional airports in Winchester and Harrisonburg. Built in 1995, Lindhaven was designed with family in mind. Bring yours and make this oasis of sunshine and tranquility your own.
