Boulder Crest Estate: More than just a luxury home, it is a perfect place for every kind of outdoor enthusiast. Set on 134 acres in the Blue Ridge mountains with panoramic views that reach D.C., you can gaze at the stars with no light pollution. The Main house has 4 bedrooms and the 2 carriage houses each have 2 bedrooms for a total of 8. Birdwatchers can enjoy bald eagles, hawks, and many other birds that visit the 5-acre wild meadow. The athlete will love the full gym, basketball and tennis courts, hiking trails adjacent to the Appalachian Trail, and heated pool. Those seeking a small farm will enjoy the bank barn, three covered vegetable gardens, chicken coop and run, and Hartley Greenhouse. If hunting is your passion, enjoy 100 private hunting acres with a custom-furnished cabin and shooting range. Wildlife includes black bears, whitetail deer, foxes, and wild turkeys.
While a very comfortable family home with many of the original early 1900 touches preserved, the potential of this property is endless. It can serve as a Bed and Breakfast, a retreat or conference center, or a hunting lodge. You will find a lovely wine cellar in the basement. The custom kitchen is designed for cooks and entertaining and the oversized dining room can seat a large number of guests. The main house plus two additional cottages can sleep 12-16 people. The current owner has spared no expense in creating an authentic traditional British feel. From the European appliances, the walnut travertine kitchen tiles, the hammered copper accents throughout, and the custom carpet imported from England to the English knot garden, you will feel like you just stepped out of your car and into the English countryside. Bring your imagination and dreams and see what this magical place says to you! Appointment only!
