Once in a while a special farm comes on the market and the Wills Farm at Freshwater Cove in Nelson County, Virginia is just one of those properties. Rich with history, it is one of the earliest farms established in Nelson County (circa 1790). The farmhouse was built to overlook a vast land holding stretching down through the scenic valley known as Freshwater Cove.
Today the old farmhouse sits on 58+/- acres with a mix of pasture and woods. It has a modern addition to the rear which includes a fabulous master suite with an attached screened-in porch as well as a warm & inviting travertine master bathroom. Downstairs you will find a light-filled living area, breakfast nook and kitchen overlooking the various gardens and flowerbeds which frame the house.
The home is the perfect blend of old meets new. The older section of the farmhouse has been left mostly untouched over the years and still has its beautiful floors, mantels and stair railings. A new addition provides modern living and convenience, while maintaining the character of the old farmhouse. The grace and style of both the old and new are just awaiting the hand of its new owner to complete a few small cosmetic items to make this into a truly gracious country home.
The spacious home offers three bedrooms including the beautiful master suite on the second floor. The first floor offers a multitude of options including two possible bedrooms or use these rooms for offices or a study and library.
The farm offers approximately 25 acres of open fields and pastures. The stable is very versatile as it has the capacity for eight stalls, but is currently used as five stalls and a workshop. One of the original outbuildings on the farm functions as a hay barn. A riding ring and round pen are convenient to the stable, while access to miles of trails provide the opportunity to explore the beauty of the surrounding valley and hills. Even though the farm is utiliized today as a horse farm, it has the elevation and orientation for a potential vineyard.
A hidden pond sits below the home and is fed by two springs located in a field just above the pond. And from many vantage points, the pastoral beauty of Freshwater Cove and the spectacular mountains of central Virginia spread before you. This is indeed a special farm.
