This 100 acre Classic Revival Mansion of Mountain View, ca. 1910, is nestled in the Francis Thornton Valley of Rappahannock County. Surrounded by the tranquility of fields at the base of mountains, the views can be seen from each of the rooms.nCustom designed and built for George Miller by Charlie Hawkins, this builder and home were the subject of a beautifully written article in Fine Homebuilding Magazine, Dec. 94/Jan. 1995. A few excepts from the article, state: “Using state of the art construction methods, this 3 story home took 3 years to build and was originally equipped with gas lights and gravity-fed water, which flowed continuously through a concrete sink in the pantry from a covered spring. All framing, siding and trim was cut from timber on the property and kiln dried on site”. This spectacular estate features 3 staircases, and 7 bedrooms with rough-in plumbing for 6 full and 2 half baths. The woodwork, including the original wood flooring, paneled wainscoting and stairwells, and extensive trim is in spectacular shape and just needs to be refinished. nFrom the front of the estate, the columned portico opens into a grand foyer, which houses the front staircase and side hall leading to the side porch and first floor bedroom. The number and size of the rooms on the main level is ideal for hosting large gatherings. To the left of the foyer is a sitting room perfect for a home office or library. To the right of the foyer a spacious living room which opens into the banquet size dining room with bay window. Next, one enters the kitchen with butlers pantry and beyond the kitchen is the family room. Two powder rooms are accessed from a hallway between the family room and the first floor en-suite bedroom.nOn the second level are 5 en-suite bedrooms, 2 bedrooms, which share a bath, and the laundry room. The primary bedroom suite occupies most of the right side of the 2nd floor and can be accessed from the hallway into a private sitting room or directly into the bedroom. On the third level, in lieu of the original ballroom is a private bedroom with bath. This space is ideal for an upstairs family room or bunkroom for slumber parties.nSubstantial investment has been made to restore this stately 7,000 sq. ft. home, including the beginnings of a geothermal system to provide the heating and cooling, and updated wiring and plumbing lines have been installed. Except for the kitchen, each of the rooms on the main level has a wood burning fireplace which has been rebuilt and lined. Insulation has been added to exterior walls and the attic and drywall has been installed. Much of the expensive and time consuming restoration has been done. This property is waiting for someone with the eye for interior finishes to bring it to life. nThis Estate is just minutes from the charming villages of Sperryville and Washington, Virginia and enjoys convenient proximity to Culpeper with Culpeper Regional Airport and Warrenton with Warrenton-Fauquier Airport.
