    Description

    Some old fashioned things are hard to beat. Buckland is a celebrated estate offering one of the most convenient locations of any country property of this caliber. Approximately 7 minutes from Interstate 66 at Gainesville and less than 30 minutes from Dulles International Airport. Buckland straddles both Fauquier and Prince William Counties boasting more than 500 acres. The home is currently offered with approximately 98 acres. Additional land is available by separate negotiation. The quality of construction, architectural significance and meticulous preservation makes this home so unique and such a value at this price point. The hanging spiral stairway, grand foyer, wide living room doorway flanked by ceiling height folding doors, wide plank Heart Pine floors, soaring ceiling heights and up to 3 foot thick plaster walls are among the highlights you will never see in modern construction. There are 5 bedrooms including what could be used as a main level master, 4 full bathrooms plus a powder room and 6 wood burning fireplaces. Buckland also boasts a beautifully maintained swimming pool, detached 3 car garage, 2 bed and 2 bath guest house with sweeping views, 2 large horse barns totally more than 25 stalls, tack rooms, office and barn loft. A large equipment building, storage structure and 3 story underground ice house are also included. Established in 1774, Buckland Farm has seen tobacco and wheat fields as well as a prized Shorthorn cattle operation. In modern days, it was a wildly successful Thoroughbred horse farm home to legendary Pleasant Colony, the winner of the 1981 Kentucky Derby and Preakness. The views from Buckland's front stone veranda and second-floor balcony do not look much different from what General Custer would have seen during the Civil War. The rolling pastures and unobstructed views remain intact more than 150 years later. Buckland is a timeless jewel offering unparalleled quality, manageable privacy and ease of location which makes it just right as a weekend retreat or full time residence. Easy to show. Enter via private locked gate at 8230 Buckland Mill Road, Gainesville.
