Welcome to the magnificent Foxlease Farm on 160+/- glorious acres* in Upperville's Hunt Country. Foxlease Farm is the former estate of John Archbold, a co-founder of Standard Oil. Since its purchase in the late ’90s, it has been transformed into a one-of-a-kind equestrian facility complete with two horse barns (12 stalls / 17 stalls), three run-in sheds, machine shed, hay barn, riding ring, multiple fenced paddocks, two silos with rolling hills and trails to ride out. Along with the equestrian updates, a beautiful stone center building was added to the existing 19th-century home. The inspiration for the new architectural additions was from Provence, France. The main home offers grand living and entertaining spaces with soaring ceilings, unique and inviting gathering areas, and breathtaking views of Hunt Country's finest land. Upon entry, you are welcomed into the living room with stunning exposed beams, two massive fireplaces, and patio access with views of the impeccable grounds. From the living room, flow into the guest wing or main living wing through sun-drenched hallways. The guest wing offers 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bath, and a play/craft/bedroom. The main living wing of the home includes a cozy library with 1 bedroom and 1 full bathroom above, 2 half bathrooms, formal dining room, commercial-grade kitchen, and mudroom. Directly above the dining and kitchen area are a laundry room, 2 bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms. Relax and unwind in the Primary Suite showcasing sweeping views from two balconies, fireplace, walk-in closet with ample built-ins, bathroom with soaking tub and standing shower, as well as a sitting room. Family and friends will love the extravagant theatre room with a wet bar. In total, there are 7 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, and 7 fireplaces. Beyond the main home, there are several guest homes and living spaces all surrounded by peaceful green pastures. The first guest home is stone-built (in close proximity to the main house) with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths above and a 4 car garage underneath. The second guest home (in close proximity to the small barn) has one 2 bedroom apartment with 1 full bath and a 2ndlarger apartment with 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath. The third guest home (located next to the pool house) is stone-built with 2 separate apartments, each with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The pool house is complete with a steam room, large gym, 1 bedroom, and 1 full bathroom. Additionally, there are multiple outdoor living spaces perfect for summer parties. Jacques Wertz, the world-famous Belgium landscape garden designer, was the inspiration for landscape design. Wertz is known for his signature "clouds" of beautiful boxwood creating a green architecture. The boxwoods, weeping Kastura and extensive vegetable garden are a true delight. What's more is the lovely lake, stream and waterfall features. The property is in Open Space Easement. *The final acreage is subject to pending boundary line adjustment. Foxlease Farm is conveniently located 38 miles from Washington Dulles International Airport, and 52 miles from our nation's capital.
