Oak Crest SOLD
187 Red Oak Mountain Road
Woodville $1,495,000 SOLD
Dramatically sited high on Red Oak Mountain, Oak Crest combines a private location and the charm of old Virginia with some of the best views in the eastern United States. The home occupies a strategic spot on a gentle ridge sheltered by old oaks. To the west lies an uninterrupted sweep of rolling farmland, forests and the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains as far as the eye can see.
The real jewel of the Oak Crest crown is the back porch overlooking the stunning view. The porch is wide and deep, more like an outdoor living room. When the sun is low on the Blue Ridge and the shadows creep across the landscape, there is no better view. This 28 acre farm is the best place to slow down and enjoy nature’s magnificence.
The home at Oak Crest was completely renovated in 2005. The house was stripped down to the framing and rebuilt with new plumbing, heating and electrical systems. The new oak floor looks 200 years old, the woodwork is impressive and the colors are spot on. No detail was overlooked in this renovation. The kitchen was completely updated with new cabinets, gourmet appliances and granite counters. Now the home has a total of three bedrooms, three full baths, and a powder room – all with new tile and fixtures. Other features include the finished walk out basement which is a comfortable game and party room and a spacious screen porch, convenient to the kitchen, which makes a great addition for outdoor dining.
The grounds around the house are equally special. There are extensive ornamental gardens, a lush shade garden and many mature Dogwoods. Outdoor lighting was designed to showcase the spectacular Oaks and Poplars while providing illumination and security. Just below the house, the western lawn falls away quickly opening a wide window to the view framed by Dogwoods and sizeable shade trees.
Just below the house on the north side is the pool complex. A stone terrace and ornamental gardens surround the pool and on one end there is a pool pavilion open to the pool and the view. It includes an outdoor kitchen, dining space and room to relax.
Oak Crest is set up as a compact equestrian property with a three stall stable complete with tack room, feed room and hay storage above. The property has approximately 15 acres of fenced pasture. Oak Crest is in the Rappahannock Hunt and Thornton Hill Fort Valley Hounds territory and there are plenty of opportunities for trail riding in the area.
The property is accessed by a State maintained road but it is very private as only a handful of homes use the road. It is convenient to Sperryville and Culpeper and it is only about 1.5 hours to Washington DC. The home and property are in excellent condition so you can move right in — it's easy and peaceful and always fun enjoying the ever changing views. Oak Crest is only a few miles from the Castleton Festival and Chateauville Foundation, which bring in world-class concerts, operas and other performances much of the year. Only 20 minutes away the Shenandoah National Park offers an amazing array of waterfalls, canyons, trails and hikes. Rappahannock County has many fine restaurants and wineries that will allow you an array of great activities every weekend.
