Paradise Found: So Near and yet so far PLEASE WATCH VIDEO FIRST, LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS DESCRIPTION. THANK YOU
On the market for the first time in two decades, this 122-acre secluded nature reserve, a gem with two homes and equine facilities located in the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, offers a unique opportunity to experience the natural world in complete privacy and to explore a range of country pursuits in agriculture, viticulture, aquaculture, silviculture, horticulture, astronomy and equine activities.
Yet, Nido is less than an hour’s drive from two regional airports, four universities, and an Amtrak station with service to Charlottesville, Washington DC and points north. It is 20 minutes from shopping and dining amenities.
Seeing is believing! Please visit Nido’s website to really experience this magical property.
Family nest, second home, corporate retreat, B&B, an artists and writers colony, or a center for nature-study, this serene escape-from-it-all is custom built for elegance and comfort with a 3-bedroom, 3 bath Arts and Crafts style 5,015 square foot home designed by the Architect Peter Osolins. With stunning 150 year-old, reclaimed Old Growth Heart Pine flooring, a one-of-a-kind mesquite entry door, a chef’s kitchen with a Viking Range and Subzero refrigerator, and 3 screened porches, this is a quietly elegant and light-filled home perfectly sited in the landscape.
A custom second home has 3-bedrooms, 3-baths and a garage with a one-ton mechanic’s hoist, and could serve as a manager’s home, a place for extended family, a guest house, artist studio, B&B or rental property.
Nido has fast broadband internet, a seven-stall horse stable with a hayloft, an equipment/hay barn, a writer’s studio, a workshop, 1-acre spring-fed, stocked lake, a fruit orchard, mature shade trees, miles of bridle paths and hiking trails, organic gardens, and a rare 7 circuit turf labyrinth designed to accommodate horses. It is protected by a conservation easement and has been managed according to organic and sustainable practices for the last 20 years.
A birder’s and mycologist’s paradise and protected from light pollution, Nido is an inspiring window to Nature that is both restorative and inspiring, offering a remarkable treasure of diversity and beauty that can be explored by simply stepping outside. Come watch a fox sleeping below the master bedroom window, a bobcat prowling the shores of the lake, a heron hunting in the shallows or a kingfisher diving into its depths. Forage for chanterelles and morels, listen to whippoorwills and tree frogs, watch fireflies fill the dark summer night or explore the Milky Way with a telescope.
