Real Estate Feature – The Cowpasture River Farm

Cowpasture River - Virginia

Cowpasture River – Virginia


Downtown Lexington, VA is still a little rainy this Friday morning, but we are promised sunshine for the weekend! I’m not sure when you can officially start the weekend, but I’m hoping no later than mid-day! I will admit here and now that I am ready for some sunshine and summertime! This brings me to the feature for today, which would be a perfect place to enjoy the summer…on the river!!! This Bath County property is available for the first time in over 40 years!! This private and protected Cowpasture River Farm consists of 346+/- acres and over 2.5 miles of the pristine Cowpasture River. This is a perfect setting for a family compound. The main house dates back to 1850 when original log home was built. Major renovations and modernizations have occurred over the years, expanding to over 4200 SF.

A guest house/cottage (2 BRs,1 BA ) was completely renovated two years ago. An additional single family dwelling is permissible on this property. Several useful and functional farm dwellings are located on the farm which is host to diverse wildlife and fauna, lush river bottom, pasture and woodlands. Property is bounded by the National Forest, a Wilderness Area just across the road protects the viewshed of this property, as does the Conservation Easement on this and an adjoining property.The beautiful long stretch of the Cowpasture, considered one of the cleanest rivers in Virginia, defies one’s imagination.

Go ahead and contact us today so that we can help you find your perfect summer home!!!

Hope you enjoy your weekend!!
