Property Description

Nestled within the picturesque landscape of historic Bluemont, Virginia and perched high on a hillside, amidst breathtaking vistas, Check Mate Lane awaits. Tucked down a quiet gravel lane, the farm is surrounded by expansive farms, some in conservation. Horse fields and evergreen trees create a natural barrier that provides a sense of seclusion and privacy, yet the farm is less than a five-minute drive to Rt. 7. For commuting, the Dulles Toll Road to Dulles International Airport is a mere 25 minutes away, offering effortless access to the wider world while preserving the serenity of this remarkable retreat. As you approach the farm, stately stone chimneys stand tall, welcoming you to a place where history and modern comfort intertwine seamlessly. Step inside this grand wood and stone residence, and the warmth of antique floors, interior stone walls and rustic overhead beams envelop you, creating a cozy yet refined atmosphere. The main house offers four bedrooms and 2.5 baths, each room exuding its own peaceful aura. Chefs will appreciate the Cherry Bertazzoni range, readers will relish in the sunlit quiet nooks on each level and artists will fall in love with the expansive windows offering a view of one of Loudoun County’s most beautiful valleys. Outdoor living spaces abound at Check Mate Lane beginning with the stone terrace just footsteps from the main residence ideal for al fresco dining amidst the twinkling lights of the valley or enjoying that first cup of coffee as the sun breaks through a morning fog. For nature lovers this is a tranquil and relaxing spot surrounded by flowers and specimen trees and the songs of a wide variety of resident birds. With easy access to the lower-level kitchen, over the years the terrace has been the scene of unforgettable brunches and cocktail parties! Animal enthusiasts will delight in the fantastic barn complex, including a center aisle barn for horses with feed and tack rooms, additional barn with 6 stalls and an equipment shed. A smartly designed system of board fenced paddocks makes this a turnkey facility for move- in day. The quiet country lane offers a "ride out" and above the main barn you find the ideal spot for a future regulation sized grass dressage ring. The existing outdoor buildings could transition to house a woodworking shop, an art or yoga studio or the perfect spot to start your dream beekeeping or crafting your own brew. A dedicated driveway to the barn complex makes day-to-day farm activities easy. For your guests, an adorably designed guest cottage awaits, mirroring the main house's stone chimney and charm and warmth that offers privacy, a wood burning stove, a galley kitchen and full bath. The views from the cottage are as breathtaking as from the main home. Close enough proximity for family and friends, the cottage expands your ability to entertain at the main house. With its own electric meter and parking, it also offers rental income potential or serves as the perfect home office. Whether watching the sunrise from the comfort of picture windows, entertaining on the terrace, gardening in your veggie patch, galloping across the paddocks or exploring nearby attractions such as the towns of Middleburg and Purcellville, hiking on the Appalachian Trail at Bear's Den, or exploring the award-winning vineyards “Sunset Hills” and “50 West” and others. A quick drive into the village of Bluemont to the General Store for an ice cream cone and lively conversation with the “locals” one is reminded of the simple joys and sense of community life in the country can bring! Check Mate Lane is a once in a lifetime real estate opportunity that transcends the ordinary offering a blend of unparalleled views, prime location, privacy and equine and amenities all wrapped up within the grandeur of a period home with guest cottage and acreage. Check Mate Lane exudes a special kind of magic 365 days a year.
