Vast fields striped with whiteboard fencing, blue-tinted mountain views, and red barns with tin roofs are beautiful scenes to behold. Take a Sunday drive west and you'll find them peppered throughout the Shenandoah region. But few properties are blessed with all three features in flawless abundance like Glenmont Farm.
This luxury estate includes Glenmont Farm, the building, the Slate Hill School House, and Bunk House totaling 158.8 acres. Glenmont Farm is a one of a kind equestrian estate with unique combination of features that are rarely available. Come live in the valley within a valley. Fort Valley, Virginia is renowned for its natural beauty. It is cradled in the Massanutten Mountain and surrounded by the George Washington National Forest.
Enjoy the view of the sunrise over the mountain in the morning from the front porch and watch the sunset from the deck in the evening. Glenmont Farm is anchored by a beautifully remodeled historic farm house that retains the charm and historic integrity while having every modern luxury. Heated tile floors and a steam shower in the master bathroom, a six burner Viking commercial range and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen are a few of the many examples of the upgraded features of this home.
Take a short walk to the equestrian facility that is featured on the builder's website. The facility includes an indoor arena, outdoor arena, automatic waters, run in sheds, board fencing, three smaller barns, housing for help and endless trails with direct access to the National Forest. The serious equestrian can move in and train to the top in hunter/jumper/eventing, fox hunting, endurance, or western in this world class training facility.
Adjacent to the four-bedroom main house is a beautifully remodeled 1800s vintage log guest home. Like the main house, the log guest house retains the natural beauty and charm of the era but with modern conveniences like the original stone fireplace and central heat & air. There are multiple gardens, barns, and machine sheds that make this estate work seamlessly. The Slate Hill Schoolhouse started serving the local farming families before the Civil War. The original schoolhouse burned and was rebuilt in 1871. In 1939, the school closed and has since become a residence.
The three bedroom two bath home creatively retains its historic charm while offering the amenities and conveniences of modern living. The furnishings are a combination of new and re-purposed. The bathrooms have new fixtures and flooring, the bedding is new and the full kitchen is new. The home has a cupola with a school bell that can be rung from inside, a beautiful wrap around front porch, a living room/library, a dining room, a mud room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a loft area.
The Bunk House is a pristine mobile home that provides direct access to national park land and magnificent views. It is located on the western edge of the property and borders the George Washington National Forest, making it an easy walk to the hiking, mountain biking, and horse back trails. A single-level residence with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms has a fully equipped kitchen with an open floor plan. The views from the deck or the fire pit are breath taking.
The property also includes RV hook-ups and a large pond. Glenmont Farm is a great venue for weddings & events and has a favorable feasibility study for a vineyard. You can also purchase the Glenmont Farm parcel separately which includes 82.7 acres, guest house, equestrian facilities and a 2.2 acre lot fronting Fort Valley Road (see additional listing).
