Lockwood is a historic and charming 51 Acre Country Estate minutes from Middleburg in prime Orange County Hunt Territory. Stonewalls line the significant frontage on the picturesque Burrland Lane with a handsome entrance leading to the main house, farm office/guest suite and pool with a separate entrance leading to the stables and riding ring.
Perfectly sited to enjoy privacy and lovely views, the main house of Lockwood is referred to as the Miller’s House/Log Cabin, ca. 1800. In later years the stone section was added and then the one level wood siding section was added, which features a main level bedroom and bath. In 2012 the main house and the property was extensively restored and renovated, including the installation of geothermal heating, the addition of the office/guest suite and the stunning salt water pool, beautifully meshing the 19th and the 21st centuries.
The foyer is welcoming with its high ceiling, wide board flooring and an elegantly curved handrail and stairs leading to the upper and lower levels of the home. To the left of the foyer is a powder room and a hallway leading to the primary bedroom with private bath. Returning to the foyer, one ascends 5 steps to the upper level, which features the handsome living room (the upper level of the log cabin) with wood burning fireplace and wide board flooring; completing this level are two bedrooms and a full bath. Returning to the foyer, one then descends 9 steps to the lower level and enters the spacious dining room (the lower level of the log cabin) with wide board flooring, exposed beams, wood burning fireplace, and a walk-in-bay window. From the dining room one enters the breakfast room with raised fireplace and the sleek kitchen with modern cabinetry, quartz countertops, gas cooktop, double ovens, and built-in refrigerator. At the far end of the kitchen is the mechanical room and laundry with stacking washer and dryer.
The grounds surrounding the home are rolling and include a lush lawn, perennial gardens, farm office/guest suite, pool, pool equipment house, playground, and board fenced fields and stream.
The location and size are perfect for one who enjoys riding. The horse facilities include the stable which features 8 single stalls, 2 large birthing stalls, which if reconfigured could each be 3 stalls, 2 wash stalls, feed room and large hayloft. There are 5 board-fenced paddocks and fields, a run-in shed, a riding ring and tremendous ride out potential in prime Orange County Hunt territory.
The Conservation Easement with Land Trust of Virginia refers to the main house as the Miller’s House (circa 1800) and does allow for it to be enlarged within limits and within a building envelope. Plans were drawn; however, the owners felt once the home was remodeled the addition was unnecessary. The land provides approximately 38 acres in open fields and 13 acres of forested land. The land offers rich soils with over half of the acreage deemed as Prime Farmland or Farmland of Statewide Importance. In addition there are streams traversing the property.
Lockwood is a wonderful country estate in beautiful condition and of manageable size surrounded by other large estates. This is horse country at its finest.
