*3D TOUR & VIDEO AVAILABLE* Welcome to your dream home, Rockingham Farm, an exquisite 166 +/- acre Georgian Colonial Revival estate located amidst quiet, preserved farmland in Fauquier County. Rockingham is just ten minutes from Route 66, twenty minutes to Wegmanâs to the east, and thirty minutes to Michelin-starred gourmet dining and the Shenandoah National Park to the west. Driving up the country lane, the romantic mature landscaping unfolds, revealing the light-filled, stately Manor House, full of Old World detail, with commanding views of a lovely reflecting pond, verdant hillsides, and bold streams. The stunning six acre reservoir on the north end of the property provides rich habitats for wildlife and waterfowl, creating a sportsmanâs or birderâs paradise. Approaching the Manor House, you are greeted by the grandeur of the solid copper hip roof above the stately façade. Rockinghamâs rich history runs from its circa 1740 humble beginnings as a two-story, stucco-covered log cabin through to its current footprint as a four-story masterpiece finished circa 1920. Wide, gracious hallways open to high ceilings and rooms suffused in natural light. Hardwood floors guide you through each exquisitely appointed space bounded by tall mouldings and solid wood doors. Admire the Rumford style fireplaces and the original silver-plated sconces adorning the Living Room, which are remnants of another time when gas lights illuminated soft evenings. Dream of preparing food in the sun-kissed kitchen to be savored with family and friends in the spacious Dining Room, located just a few steps through the capacious Butlerâs Pantry. In the Library, built-in bookshelves and a gas-log fireplace beckon, inviting you to curl up and lose yourself in the pages of your favorite novel. For all its historic charm, the main house at Rockingham has been outfitted with modern comforts and conveniences, including the three-zone system of central air conditioning and heating. In addition, four of the seven fireplaces have gas-log inserts, and a whole-house Generac generator was installed in 2020 for added peace of mind. There is a custom detached garage with a modern apartment, which boasts a full bath, a kitchenette, a large sunny, open room, plus wood floors and exposed walnut beams milled from the property. It suggests a perfect home office or artistâs studio. Two Cottages on the property offer their own blend of comfort and character, equally welcoming for extended family, as rentals, or for AirBnB guests. The first, the Farmerâs Cottage, has three large bedrooms. Step inside to discover original pine floors, lovingly refinished in 2022, and bask in the warm cabin-like ambiance created by exposed original beams and custom-made wood mouldings and solid doors. A sunny front porch and a new deck added in 2023, overlooking Cedar Run, invite outdoor dining and relaxation. The second cottage, the Gate House, a circa 1920 board and batten-sided, stone foundation bank house, offers a cozy retreat with two sunny bedrooms that have original pine floors. Recent updates include a kitchen and bathroom remodel in 2017. New luxury vinyl plank floors and a wood burning stove add to the appealing warmth and comfort of the home. As a largely fenced, working cattle farm with regenerative features, Rockingham comes with the land and a long barn complete with infrastructure in place for a successful livestock production operation. Equestrians will be happy to know there are five stalls, a tack room, and a small riding ring behind the barn for backyard horses plus plenty of trails for gentle hacking. Heaven for a machine shop enthusiast or woodworker, the heated workshop, with two huge garage bays and a bathroom, is located right in the barn lot. Currently, the farm pastures and barn are leased by a local cattle business, placing the majority of the land in advantageous agricultural use. The seller is not responsible for roll-back taxes.
