The privacy, protected views, and charming historic residences at Halfway Farm come to the market for the first time in nearly 60 years. With 107 acres, located just four miles from Middleburg and The Plains, Halfway Farm offers residences of character within a rich array of natural resources and rural amenities.
The residential enclave and farm buildings at Halfway Farm are tucked far off the Halfway Road, with beautiful views of pasture, farmland, and Turner Mountain beyond. Alignment to the east provides extraordinary light across the farm, particularly at sunrise and sunset. Halfway Farm and its neighbors are under conservation easement, promising unspoiled enjoyment of this rural beauty for generations to come.
The Main House is a classic Virginia stone and stucco residence with four bedrooms, four baths, hall, living room with fireplace, library with fireplace and bar, enclosed porch, dining room, open kitchen, solarium, and laundry. Beautiful antique floors and rich pine paneling give great character to the house. It is reached by a nearly half-mile drive through the farm.
The Main House is flanked by three lovely dwellings: two 1-bedroom Guest Houses with baths, and a spacious Stone Cottage, with one bedroom with dressing room, second bedroom or office, one bath, living room, dining room, kitchen, and mudroom/laundry. Lawns and gardens within this residential enclave give privacy to each dwelling.
Sited off the stable entrance to Halfway Farm, the Farm Manager’s House also boasts great views, with three bedrooms, three baths, open living room and kitchen, enclosed porch, and a deck. This enclave includes a stable and large machine storage shed and workshop. A separate stable entrance serves the Manager’s house and farm buildings.
The farm features 39 acres of pasture fenced for horses, 19 acres in hay, and the two stables, with a total of nine stalls, feed and tack rooms. The 45 acres of mature forest - poplar, sycamore, oak - is crossed by Little River and contains a dramatic, three-story rock quarry, offering beautiful walks at all seasons. Two ponds are managed for wildlife, including kingfishers, heron, local and migrating ducks.
