Grounds and Pastures Lush pastures and velvet-green meadows seem to stretch endlessly on this incredible property. Stroll or ride on miles of trails around your private lake, or wander through forests that include 38 acres of investment-grade Loblolly pine in its fifteenth year of growth. Youâ€™re likely to spot the herds of deer or flocks of wild turkeys that are abundant here, wandering in and out of the trees. Eastern View Farm sports 10 watered pastures, and the soil is mostly comprised of a fine, sandy loam. There are 130 acres of productive hay fields as well. Before it was used as a horse farm, the property served as a cattle ranch, and it is still appropriate for that use. An operating gravity-fed watering system brings water to all the pastures. There is extensive fencing and cross-fencing on the gently sloping, rolling landscape. Sections of the grounds border lovely Forsterâ€™s Creek, and there are views of foothills and the Blue Ridge Mountains beyond.
12-Stall Barn Eastern View Farm’s equestrian amenities make this property ideal for avid horse owners. The property’s main horse barn features 12 stalls that are each 12 X 12 ft., and sport Dutch doors and transom windows. Each stall is outfitted with rubber mats, and 6 have automatic waterers. There is a wash stall with hot and cold water. There are two cross-tie, tack-up areas and a tack room, as well as an office/groom’s quarters with a kitchenette, 1.5 baths, a washer and dryer, and a storage room/workshop. There is also a spacious equipment shed on the side. This board and batten pole barn is 155 ft. by 39 ft., and there is a 14 ft. center aisle. The barn is designed to accommodate as many as 16 stalls. The property also offers a second, 60 ft. by 40 ft. pole barn. This convenient outbuilding generally is used for hay storage. It also features three stalls, an exterior tack room, a metal roof and a ground floor. Eastern View Farm’s beautiful grounds are ideal for exercising and enjoying your horses. Invite friends for a leisurely afternoon ride and enjoy the beauty of Virginia’s historic Piedmont region. The area is known for its top-notch horse farms, and nearby Charlottesville offers a number of veterinary care services and clinics specializing in equine care.
Dressage Arena Train for the elegant equestrian sport of dressage in Eastern View Farm’s magnificent private arena. You and your family will enjoy exercising your horses in this 72’x176’ covered arena, which was custombuilt by Virginia Frame with Everlast EQ/LBS “euro-felt” footing. There are five horse paddocks designed for rotational grazing off a center corral, each with automatic waterers. Two additional paddocks are located at the front of the property. Every paddock offers an open, gently hilled slope and a wooded retreat. The dressage arena offers gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside and hardwood forests. At Eastern View Farm, rainwater from the 12-stall horse barn and dressage arena is collected in six 1,300-gallon tanks. This collected rainwater may be used to supply the barn, and water is purified by a UV-filtering system. The barn also includes a septic tank and a 130 ft. well with a recovery rate of 8 gallons per minute serves the entire property.
Private Stocked Lake On lazy summer afternoons, grab your fishing pole and wander down to the gently curving shores of Eastern View Farmâ€™s private lake. This glorious, spring-fed 7+ acre lake is fully stocked with bass and crappie, so reeling in a fresh catch will be a breeze. Set up a lakeside picnic in early autumn to enjoy the open expanse of blue sky and colorful turning leaves on the nearby hardwoods. From time to time, blue heron and two local eagles can be seen diving for fish in the lake. Eastern View Farm is located near picturesque Lake Anna, a 13,000-acre body of water with approximately 17 miles of shoreline. Lake Anna State Park is a family-friendly outdoor recreation area, with a public boat ramp, picnic areas, beach and nature-loversâ€™ activities. Three campgrounds at the park offer camping, fishing, hiking trails and meeting areas.
Charlottesville, Virginia Eastern View Farm is located in Virginia’s Piedmont country, just a short drive from charming Charlottesville. This lovely community is famous as the site of the prestigious University of Virginia, and as the home of the university’s founder and designer, President Thomas Jefferson. On a spectacular hilltop overlooking the countryside is Jefferson’s beloved plantation, Monticello, a jewel of neoclassical architecture and innovative design. This region also features two other historic, genteel properties belonging to our earliest Presidents. Take an afternoon to visit stately Montpelier, the home of James and Dolley Madison, and Ash Lawn-Highland, the home of James Monroe. Contemporary Charlottesville offers sophisticated cultural attractions to suit any interest. Stroll around The Corner and sample the city’s atmospheric pubs and casual restaurants. The city also offers craft beer and wine tours, lectures, several award-winning theaters and comedy clubs. On leisurely afternoons, one can tour the beautiful university campus buildings designed by Jefferson, including the famous Rotunda, or stroll across the green Lawn and surrounding Range, where distinguished students like Edgar Allan Poe and Woodrow Wilson once lived. In April and October, the Foxfield Races are held, exciting steeplechase events that evoke Virginia’s genteel history. Charlottesville is accessible by rail and highway, as well as Charlottesville-Albemarle regional airport. The cities of Fredericksburg and Richmond, the state capital, are within easy drives, and the area features excellent public and private schools. Join a tailgate party before a Virginia Cavaliers football game at its picturesque open-air stadium, or enjoy a basketball game or rock concert at John Paul Jones Arena. Charlottesville has entertainment, culture and recreational offerings to suit every taste.
