One of Virginia's grandest estates, Mount Sharon combines exquisite architecture with world-class gardens and grounds. The 8BR/ 10BA brick Georgian is the ideal country retreat â a private oasis surrounded by pastoral and mountain views. The spectacular gardens, designed by noted landscape architect Charles Stick, are among the finest in America and have been featured in numerous publications. The main house features both grand reception rooms and cozy and intimate family spaces. Ideally suited for entertaining, the house boasts excellent circulation both inside and out for larger gatherings. Dependencies include a farm manager's house, guest house/ office complex, stables, kennels, pool, and barns. Two other tenant houses and cattle barns are on outlying acreage. Pastures are well planted for horses and other livestock, and/or hay production and include two large stocked ponds. The estate is comprised of 561 acres in several parcels. Located in Keswick Hunt territory. Approximately 40 minutes to Charlottesville, 95 minutes to Washington, DC. Private aviation facilities are within a five minute drive. A rare opportunity to own the best of the best.
