Protected forever: Dutchmont, 100 acre oasis  near Charlottesville, Virginia

Protected forever: Dutchmont, 100 acre oasis near Charlottesville, Virginia

An extraordinary offering in the heart of the Keswick Hunt

Just prior to the year 2000, three 100 acre parcels were created from the stunning 18th century plantation known as Windholme in southern Orange County, Virginia. A carefully conceived conservation easement was created to protect each parcel and the remainder from further development. 

Plans were drawn by noted architect J. Kestner (and are available) for a most unique home sited to enjoy the long reaching views of this unspoiled Piedmont valley. Repurposing materials from an 19th century mill found in the Blue Ridge mountains, a dramatic four bedroom post and beam home was created exuding rustic character at every turn while benefitting from modern technology and efficiencies.

For the horse enthusiast the situation could not be more opportune. The previous owner who was active with the Keswick hunt used the property as a hunt box and created an excellent five stall stable with a two bedroom apartment attached. There are several paddocks for turn out and marvelous riding opportunities on and around Dutchmont.

Dutchmont is comprised of 100 acres of prime Virginia farm land. It has approximately 75 acres in gently rolling pasture and hayland with the balance in mature hardwood forest reaching to the top of a small mountain. The property is well watered with several springs, a stream and a large pond of several acres stocked with gamefish. Except for the horse paddocks, the farm is currently maintained by a neighboring farmer who makes hay and grazes cattle on the land.

Dutchmont is located less than 10 minutes from the charming, historic town of Gordonsville and about 30 minutes from Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. Washington, DC is about two hours north.
