Pheasant’s Eye – 16+ acres just east of the town of Middleburg recorded in 2 separate parcels. Stunning property. Main house c. 1790 originally served as an Ordinary for travelers between Alexandria and Winchester.
Between 1800 and 1810 the federal portion of the house was added and built using unique rubble built and stone block construction and is believed to be the only house in America built in such a fashion. The second story is made of blue granite block laid in a Flemish bond pattern. The stone walls of the home are approximately 2 feet thick.
The home has been completely restored and expanded to include a first floor master suite and large family room off the kitchen. The kitchen includes the notable cooking fireplace. Lovely hardwood floors through out the 5 bedroom suites and the entire home has been meticulously preserved along with the original millwork and fireplace mantles.
Two substantial outbuildings serve as party barns garaging for approximately 20 cars, space for guests, home office and large scale entertaining in either barn. The grounds are immaculate and 2 of the original outbuildings remain. Great outdoor entertaining spaces: in the sweeping lawn, garden and large terrace and pool area. The “ruins” on the west side of the lawn are from a 19th century bank barn that was deconstructed in the mid-1960’s. Portions of the barn foundation, the banked entryway and the silo foundation remain. Please see the interactive floor plan below.
