Jeff Stein, partner with Tranzon Fox says, "This is a rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional and unique property in the heart of Virginia wine and hunt country."

Nestled amid Virginia's vineyards, historic battlefields and serene natural preserves, this breathtaking location offers as many options as the imagination can conceive. This exceptional, pristine destination has served as an inn, spa and restaurant with its own working farm for the last 11 years. Less than an hour from Dulles International Airport, potential opportunities for this historic estate are limitless, but include its continued role as a luxurious boutique resort, a commercial conference center and retreat or the ultimate private estate.

Just minutes from the charm of historic Old Town Warrenton, Washingtonian magazine recently lauded this property as "sweet bliss." The majestic tree-lined drive and hand-crafted stone bridge provide the first of many gracious sensory welcomes to visitors.

Two structures of exceptional architectural design and beauty are located on these sprawling grounds. The first of these is a 1920's fieldstone manor house of over 12,500 square feet that presently serves as a restaurant and event space. The mansion's European-inspired architecture features 30 foot stone walls, dramatic beam architecture and an impressive fireplace. Arched doors, immense windows and a large adjacent flagstone terrace offer magnificent views of the property's expansive lawns and spring-fed pond.

Built in 2002 to complement the site's original mansion, the separate 20,500-square-foot fieldstone inn is comprised of 21 spacious guest rooms and bathrooms, each with a generous flagstone balcony. Two suites offer a fireplace, whirlpool soaking tub and separate shower. Guest rooms are ingeniously and uniquely laid out to maximize guest privacy and relaxation. The more recent building's classic architecture includes an inviting arched entryway and circular drive with a landscaped center garden. Banks of side-by-side windows flood the building's interior with sunlight and are offset above by mullioned transoms.

No detail has been overlooked in edifying and maintaining the physical plant of this sprawling historic property over the last decade. A certified "Virginia Green" property, the facility is heated and cooled by geothermal power.

Southern Living magazine referred to the ample 4,000-square-foot spa facility and the steam rooms attached to the Inn, as "a luxurious experience." Immediately behind the spa, a large-scale terrace surrounds a geothermal-heated pool and submerged hot tub that enhance the tranquility and charm of this location. Well shaded by some of the property's many mature and varied trees, the fenced, all-weather tennis court is conveniently located just a few hundred yards from the inn's entrance, providing players plenty of quiet and privacy.

An architectural achievement in itself, the property also boasts a massive two-story flying Gambrel-roof barn with original silo intact. Five other outbuildings of clapboard and stone grace the borders of the working farm that regularly feeds restaurant guests.

The property is located at 9245 Rogues Road in Casanova, Virginia. Previews will held on Tuesday, October 22 and Wednesday, October 30 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
