Set against the backdrop of Bull Run Mountain and open farmland, Shadow Fox Farm is the product of an equestrian's vision and deep passion for horses. The current owners discovered this property in 1991, when it was nothing but a simple farmhouse on over 16 acres of land. Over the years, they built the barns, fencing, a riding arena~. and expanded the house twice. Thoughtful design and attention to details combined with quality construction, and the result is a professional level equine facility, that is also a very comfortable and inviting home.Romantic double porches and weeping willows immediately suggest southern hospitality and charm. The interior is just as welcoming. Impressive timber ceilings, terracotta tile floors and natural wood accents lend a rustic yet refined feeling to this comfortable country home. The cottage style kitchen is certainly the heart of this home. Designed for a busy lifestyle, meal preparation is a breeze with stainless appliances, silestone counters, up-market cherry cabinets and a large pantry. Natural sunlight pours in through an abundance of windows, allowing for views of the property from nearly every room in the house. Access to the covered porches makes it easy to enjoy the setting any time of the day. The first addition was completed in 1991, and included a main level master suite, which has also served beautifully as a formal living room. This is an elegant space with a vaulted ceiling, fireplace, walk in closet, and a spacious bathroom with a very practical and attractive walk-in shower.In 1994, the house was once again expanded to approximately 3400 square feet of living space. This thoughtful addition included a sunny mudroom, a 2 bay garage, a 4th full bathroom~..and a well-designed au pair suite with gas fireplace and kitchenette. Designed to accommodate an aging parent, this space has served very well as an office suite for professionals who work from home. Carriage House style doors are an attractive feature on the garage, and brick pavers compliment the house perfectly. Ideally suited for a horse farm, the land rolls very gently; and the acreage was well-planned to include a total of 11 stalls, 4 run-in sheds, a riding arena and plenty of turnout. There are 10 Large Paddocks and 6 Small Recovery paddocks.Of course, every decision was made with the comfort of equine residents in mind. In the main barn there are 9 roomy stalls, each with matted floors and Nelson heated automatic waterers. An insulated roof and Lucas Stall Doors keep the barn cool and well ventilated. The second barn has an additional 2 stalls, and was at one time certified for quarantine.The arena measures 110~ x 230~. It is mirrored & lighted and has excellent footing.Shadow Fox Farm is an exceptional horse farm in an amazing location. A pastoral setting with a mountain view in the heart of Virginia~s horse country. Near Middleburg and Upperville, and everything equestrian, it is a hidden treasure just off of Route 15 and I-66 for easy commuting.
