Rapidan River Farm: Tranquil Estate Plus Modern Farm-to-Table Business

The Rapidan River Farm, located in Greene County, Virginia, is a 150 acre estate property as well as one of the key suppliers to the best farm to table restaurants in the area. The Rapidan River, as it flows east from its source in the Blue Ridge Mountains at one particular bend, passes the rolling fields of Rapidan River Farm. The farm combines the features of a comfortable and convenient estate property with the practicality of a modern farm-to-table business operation. With its remodeled farmhouse, spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, extensive river frontage and farm infrastructure, it provides a wealth of options for the most discriminating buyer.

The tastefully remodeled, 1830’s classic two-over-two farmhouse has been expanded into a 3,900 +/- sq. ft. three bedroom home. It features a well-equipped kitchen with cherry cabinets, a cozy family room with Rumford fireplace, and a large dining room with a bay window. The farmhouse offers a spacious second floor master suite which has excellent views of the gardens, fields and orchards around the house. It includes a separate office area and a brightly tiled master bath with double sinks, shower and Jacuzzi. The two other bedrooms, each with a working fireplace, are in the 1830’s section of the house and share a bathroom off the upstairs hallway. An additional full bath is off the basement level family room.

This Virginia farm itself is a study in functionality and efficiency. It is divided between orchards, pastures, fields, greenhouses, chicken coops and various support structures including barns, run-in sheds and storage sheds. Listed at $2,300,000.
