Mount Ida Reserve is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity located just outside the city of Charlottesville, Virginia, within minutes of The University of Virginia. The former estate of Bernard Arnault expands almost 2,500 acres and is located along Blenheim Road, a historic route in Southern Albemarle County - home to Monticello, Ashlawn Highland, Trump Winery, Dave Matthews' Blenheim Vineyards, Grace Vineyard, and Steve Case's Early Mountain Vineyard. The property has undergone an almost two-decade transformation by its current owners. Surrounded by large country estates and wineries, Mount Ida Reserve stands out not only due to its sheer scale (more than twice the size of nearby Trump Winery & Estate) but also from its unique inventory of physical features, including miles of private river frontage, spectacular mountain views, rolling hills, fertile farmland, forests, and large privately owned lakes. The current stewards have invested nearly $100M in developing the grandest of estates with virtually every amenity. The entire property is connected with high-speed fiberoptic capability. It offers two completely renovated historic manors, a 45-acre lake, two eight stall stables, two tennis courts, an inground pool, a two-lane go-kart track, 180' water slide, several beaches, and miles of fencing, and paved and unpaved trails for horses, ATV's, bicycling, or hiking. The property also boasts several award-winning facilities, including a spectacular 12,000 sq. ft Lodge developed around a 100-year-old stable. Designed with events in mind, the stone and cedar-clad Lodge has state-of-the-art amenities, including a full caterers' kitchen, two large event spaces - fully climate controlled with spectacular outdoor spaces. Yet another event facility, the newly constructed 10,000 sq. ft Event Barn, offers a 25' stone fireplace to complement its two beautifully appointed banquet rooms, all climate controlled with full catering facilities. To complement the event spaces, there is an awe-inspiring 12,000 sq. ft cedar and stone-clad tasting room complete with a full-service restaurant for 250. The facility includes an award-winning 15- barrel craft brewery which utilizes barley from the nearby seven-acre barley field. An oversized outdoor fireplace with waterfalls and stone walls, bluestone walkways, and an observation deck make Mount Ida the most popular of Virginia wineries and breweries. An adjacent 20-acre vineyard (with an additional 150 acres prepared for vineyard expansion allowing for the largest vineyard in Virginia) creates an enchanting setting for guests. A 20,000 sq. ft shop, multiple carriage houses, barns, and outbuildings all specifically designed and recently constructed, 15 miles of paved roads, 25 miles of board fencing, five diesel backup generators, 25 springs, and multiple automated wrought iron gated entrances help service and secure the property. The owners have spared no expense investing in infrastructure covering the entire property, including miles of underground power, high-speed fiber optics, roads, bridges, and concrete dams for the 5 lakes on the property. The income-producing estate is perfect for a family compound with its 10 single-family homes in total, or, a corporate retreat, flagship corporate campus, or long-term investment. The property is uniquely positioned for further development around the existing facilities. Alternatively, the property is a prime candidate for a conservation or stream impact easement offering significant tax benefits. This incomparable property includes a turnkey opportunity complete with well-trained and experienced staff. Additionally, a hotel Study prepared by HVS for 100 key hotel is available for review.

A rare opportunity has arrived: The chance to own 10 acres on the scarce residential waterfront property that lies between Old Town Alexandria and George Washington’s Mount Vernon. RiverGate on the Potomac, designed by the noted Harrison Design Associates Architects and slated to be built by luxury home builder Horizon Builders, is a classical waterfront estate that takes advantage of this pastoral tree-lined property as it gently slopes down to the Potomac River. The magnificent French-provincial style residence is reminiscent of the grand estates built on the river a century ago, such as the storied Marwood in Maryland or Merrywood in Virginia. The seven-bedroom, 12-bath home includes soaring ceilings and wall-to-wall windows, a conservatory, a dining room that easily converts to a ballroom, staff quarters, and extensive manicured grounds with a pool, guest house, yoga studio and sport court. The property traverses a large pond on the way down to a private dock and beach with spectacular views along the Potomac River toward a wooded Maryland shore. Imagine yourself living on this historic property, which George Washington once owned as part of his 1,800-acre River Farm, the northernmost of the five farms that comprised his sprawling 18th-century estate. Here on this placid shoreline, you’ve got the opportunity to blend your own history and traditions with those of our founding father.

Rugged granite cliffs and panoramic views of the Potomac River set the stage for this exceptional estate which has been described as one of the most beautiful homes on the East Coast. A private lane introduces the gated entrance which reveals the understated, French Provincial architecture of the residence. Timeless materials including a Vermont Slate roof, copper gutters, and limestone and concrete stucco walls blend seamlessly into the breathtaking natural setting. Custom iron doors introduce guests to a circular rotunda with views to the river and beyond. Designed to capture sweeping views from literally every room, galleries extend both direction to the public rooms, including the main salon, dining room and soaring great room. Adjoining the great room, a world class kitchen by Lobkovitch with input from renowned chef, Jose Andres, captures every luxurious amenity, including a breakfast room with 180 degree views of the gardens, outdoor pool and the river. A separate catering kitchen provides a full suite of appliances to satisfy the most discerning host. Nearby, an office with unobstructed river views, a manager’s office, a full laundry room and coat room lead to the daily garage with parking for 4-6 cars. On the opposite end of this level, a spacious salon once again captures uncompromising views of the river to the west and leads to a collector’s garage with room for 18-22 cars. This finely finished space also doubles as an exceptional ballroom space for large indoor gatherings. Upstairs, the primary suite encompasses the entire western wing of the 2nd floor and includes a perfectly scaled bedroom with a fireplace, a spa-quality bath, coffee bar, and a dramatic closet and dressing room. A private corridor leads to four additional bedrooms, all with beautifully detailed, en-suite baths and stunning views.

Outdoors, a covered veranda with built-in heaters, retractable screens, a firepit, and an outdoor kitchen overlook the expansive lawn and gardens. Designed for outdoor entertaining, the central lawn area was designed to accommodate a large tent for 200+ guests. Beyond, an infinity edge pool captures sunset views, and multiple terraces provide ideal vantage points for the truly spectacular views in all directions of the river, abundant wildlife, and the city of Washington beyond. Additional accommodations for guests or staff are provided in two separate quarters: a two-bedroom unit with a kitchen and separate entrance on the lower level, and an additional guest or staff quarters with a separate entrance located above the daily garage. The estate’s ideal location just 1.5 miles from the Capital Beltway and 10 minutes to Tysons Corner also provides easy access to both Ronald Reagan National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport.

The arrow straight, mile long approach from Trappe Road, with its dry stack stone walls, to the 18th century manor house at Llangollen, is a clear bellwether as to what’s to come. Just several miles from Middleburg, the 12,500 square foot manor house at Llangollen, with its 17 fireplaces, 9 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, surveys its 1,100 plus acres from a commanding central position in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The prelude to Gettysburg was fought nearby. The Marquis de Lafayette visited here during his grand tour of the United States, as did the founding father and first President of the United States, George Washington, decades earlier. The often used, much abused mantra “if the walls had ears” is very much apropos here at Llangollen, following more than two centuries as a political, equestrian and social mecca of the influential and glitterati. As with so many great and historic homes, Llangollen began as a patent house when the land was deeded to its original owner, and founder of Middleburg, Leven Powell, by Lord Fairfax. Subsequently, over the years, the property expanded as one steward after another instilled its personality into the fabric of this noted residence, now a landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. Equestrian pursuits have been the anchor at Llangollen since its inception. From the 1930’s, it grew into what became a formidable racehorse operation around its impressive and unique 24 stall horseshoe shaped stable and 5/8 mile training track. The current owners reintroduced polo, the sport of kings, to Llangollen which had earlier played a somewhat minor role. Three world-class polo fields and an arena were installed, and the sport has continued to enjoy success here as the home of Virginia International Polo (VIP). Llangollen, a significant and rare offering, with its jockey guest house, stone garage with apartment, eight tenant houses, six further barns providing an additional 89 stalls, nine run in sheds, ice house, potting shed, smithy and various machine buildings is a Virginia treasure ready for the truly discerning buyer.
