Located on one of the highest ridges overlooking Lexington, the house sits alone on 10 acres, only one mile from Main Street. It overlooks the Old Farm where the family had lived since 1900. There are neighbors - in the distance.
By day enjoy the fabulous views of the surrounding mountains, with the lights of town twinkling in the distance each evening. Relax on the screen porch, which seems suspended over the tree tops.
Located on Old Farm Road, a favorite walking and jogging route for many locals, including the VMI cross-country team. Feel like you are away from it all, with neighbor's chickens clucking in the distance. Yet, in moments, be downtown shopping, touring, going to VMI, W&L or the Virginia Horse Center.
