Peter Leonard-Morgan and Isabelle Truchon of Hunt Country Sotheby's International Realty today closed on the sale of their listing of a quaint western Loudoun County vineyard and private residence with attached tasting room, on Harpers Ferry Road.
The property, with scenic views of the Short Hill from its expansive front porch, was built in 1940, and carefully added to over the intervening years. With multiple barn-buildings, set up for wine production and aging, plus the half acre vineyard, we can't wait to see how the new owners will re-invent this unique location.
Our delightful family vineyard, winery and residence on Harpers Ferry Road has recently seen a change to its pricing parameters; effective immediately, we have been authorized to offer this lovely property as a residence with land and outbuildings but without the wine making equipment, stainless steel fermentation tanks, oak barrels, mobile commercial kitchen and extensive wine inventory for the new price of $795,000.
The inventory and equipment is still available for an additional $115,000.
The rationale behind this bold move was to ensure that the property would not be overlooked by any potential buyers of a serene residence with land, views and additional buildings suitable for a multitude of other uses.
Let us know if you have questions, or better still want to take a tour.

We were pleased to have been quoted in an interesting article today in the preeminent local Loudoun newspaper, Loudoun Now which can be reached HERE. The article centers on vineyard and winery sales activity in Loudoun County, Virginia, and the type of buyer for these properties.
The State of Virginia now boasts in excess of 250 winery/vineyards, with its wines continually improving and some already being excellent. Tasting rooms and wine club memberships have become big business, as well as a great attraction for those wanting a fun and oenologically educational day out in a different part of the state. But what kind of tasting experience do you get for your money, and what's the cost? The answer is, they're all quite different.
On a recent trip to the excellent wine country around Charlottesville, I visited a few well known label wineries but was disappointed at the commercial atmosphere, and the speed at which we were hurried through our tastings. Prices were in the $7 range for three whites and three reds.
In northern Virginia however, at Greenhill Winery & Vineyards just east of Middleburg, tastings cost more at $14 however the experience is, well just that, an experience. It begins with a pour of Blancs de Blancs, a 100% Chardonnay sparkling white followed by either three more whites and two reds or two additional whites and three reds. Tastings are seated and there is no rush. Delightful food plates of charcuterie and cheeses with warm baguettes are available to complement the wines.
Then there is RDV Vineyards in Delaplane, a wonderful property with just two wines on offer and a tasting fee of $50 per person which does include a charcuterie board.
So it's really horses for courses - do you want a quick try out of the wines and maybe a glass or bottle after, or chillax with slower paced yet attentive samplings accompanied by appetizers and scintillating conversation? Notably, Greenhill and RDV are 21 and over only properties focusing on a specific market and clientele, whereas many others allow children and infants which will further contribute to decision making.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
