Property Description

Heigh Torr Estate is a prestigious private paradise nestled on 178 acres at the base of the Short Hill Mountains and located in the heart of Virginia’s Wine Country in beautiful Loudoun County! You enter the property through stately stone pillars and begin to relax as you drive in and admire the stunning panoramic vistas. Heigh Torr offers convenience and privacy and is a short drive to Harpers Ferry National Park, the MARC commuter train, wineries, breweries, hiking trails, and is just 45 minutes from Dulles Airport and about 60 miles from Washington, DC! There are picturesque views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and open rolling pasture fields with board fencing. The main house is stone and frame construction and a portion of the house was built circa 1784 by John Potts. The historic home has 5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces and extraordinary detailed trim work throughout. Each room has their own unique personality! Formal living room with ornate trim, elegant fireplace, chandelier and a bay window to capture the pastoral southwesterly views! Fully equipped kitchen, butler pantry, breakfast nook and a study with wood paneling, built-in bookshelves and a fireplace. Dining room with chandelier, intricate trim and built-in china cabinets. Wine cellar with stone walls and flooring. Media room with wet bar and hickory cabinets! Den with fireplace, built-in bookshelves and bay window. Family room with beamed ceilings, fireplace and stone flooring. The grounds are meticulously manicured with lovely mature trees, lush lawn, stone walls, landscape lighting and colorful flowers. Relax by the olympic size in-ground pool, soak in the new hot tub, or read a book on the patio or porch. The property has a spring fed pond and fenced pastures that will captivate the horse enthusiasts. The soils on a large portion of the property have been identified as excellent, well drained soils for a vineyard. The 2 story barn has been professionally renovated to accommodate small events, offering event seating, dance floor and bathrooms. Other improvements include an oversized detached 2 car garage and a quaint working spring house. The guest cottage, known as the Owls Nest, is a charming 3 bedroom cottage located behind the main house with 3 bedrooms, 1 ½ baths, wood floors, fireplace, lovely kitchen and a sun porch. Heigh Torr, with its location, privacy and historical charm is an ideal country estate and has unlimited potential and use, including, a primary residence, second home, horse property, potential vineyard/winery and/or hosting events.
