The Rappahannock River marks the western boundary of Fox Ford Farm for about one and a half miles. The river divides Fauquier from Culpeper County. Who wouldn't want to live on a river! Yet the house is well above flood plain. Fox Ford Farm is a working farm currently in Land Use (Agricultural district over 99AC and 20-99AC) . The farm consists of four tax parcels thus making it a good candidate for conservation easements or investment. There are several farm sheds, shops and grain storage.
The custom designed house was built in 1987 by the current owners. The ceilings are high and there are hardwood floors all through the house . From the entrance foyer with staircase, go to the spacious dining room with tray ceiling on your right or to the formal living room with fi replace on your left. The living room flows into a library with fireplace and to a covered dining porch. Behind the flowering gardens is a lovely pool with cabana. The porch is also accessible from the kitchen/breakfast room with picture windows overlooking the extensive gardens. There is a full bathroom between the study and the kitchen, so this study could be used as a downstairs bedroom if needed. You can also come into the kitchen via a large mudroom with outside entrance. Upstairs is the master bedroom with fireplace and sitting area, the double master bath, two more spacious rooms and another full bath. Further stairs lead to another room and from there, up a flight, to an artist studio located in the lookout tower. From here you can see in all directions with stunning views of the rolling farm fields, the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Rappahhannock River.
