Property Description

In a private valley of the Madison-Barbour Rural Historic District near James Madison's Montpelier, Cowherd Mtn Farm enjoys fertile soil, abundant water, rolling terrain and beautiful views across the Virginia Piedmont. Revolutionary War Vet Francis Cowherd purchased this land from James Madison and left his name on the mountain which serves as a shelter to the farm. Approximately 1/2 the farm is established pasture with the balance in mature forest. The farmhouse dates to the late 19th Century and is a solid base from which to build your home on one of the many elevated settings available. Cowherd Mtn Farm is NOT in a conservation easement offering the potential for substantial tax benefits to the buyer. The Farm qualifies for land use taxes but is NOT in land use which explains the substantial annual tax difference in comparison with other farms being considered. The farm is approximately 20 minutes NE of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia and 5 minutes from the Historic Villages of Orange and Gordonsville. The price has been REDUCED and offers a substantial value in an environs of large estates and historic homes. This is the ultimate Retreat!
