You wont find a more skillfully planned Equestrian / Hobby Farm Property in Clifton, VA on 5+ acres with No HOA, ideal for horses or other livestock or fowl. Not ready for animals? Start your own Organic / Sustainable Vegetable Garden in the round pen OR transform the barn into a Workshop or Art Studio. Unique 5 Acre - Partially Wooded Corner Lot - Horse Property / Hobby Farm (Horses, Alpacas, Donkeys, Goats, Chickens) w/ Magnificent 5 Stall Shedrow Barn, Impressive Storage/Machine Shed & Custom 60 Wooden Round Pen (all only 2 years old) located adjacent to The Historic Town of Clifton, VA. NO HOA! The home is an all Brick/Stone Raised Rambler w/ 4 BR, 3.5 Baths, Oak Hardwood Floors, 3 Fireplaces w/ major updates in 2012 and again in 2016+. Significant updates/improvements include a 50 Gallon Water Heater, Trane AC/Air Handler, Well Pump, Water Softener & PH Balancer, LG Washer/Dryer, Invisible Fence, Fireplace Chimney & Liners & Caps, Two Programmable Pellet Stoves and a Jotul Wood Stove, Hardscape Stone Work, Tree Removal plus other misc. items. The custom barn has 5 stalls - 4 are 12 x 11 foot, and one 12 x 16 suitable for layup, or extra storage. All have non slip rubber mats. Wash rack has cross ties, mats, and sloped concrete with great drainage. Feed/Tack room has concrete floors, sliding windows, and is insulated. L shaped shedrow design of barn includes a substantial crushed stone dust barn yard, which is graded toward a buried French drain. The barn also has gutters with buried downspouts, and a French drain running the length of the back side. All these features combined serve to keep the barn very dry, and the barn yard paddock functions very well as a large sacrifice area, with substantial shedrow cover. Fencing is a combination of oak three board, Oak posts and no climb wire in the wooded areas, and electric. Electric wire covers the perimeter fencing, and safe fence electric tape, plus capped t posts have been used for interior cross fencing, and to block off steep areas within paddocks. All electric fencing is powered by a solar charger. Round pen is 60 feet in diameter. It has a 6 foot high wall, with a kick proof angled base, making it an EXTREMELY safe space to work horses in. The base was properly graded, and has 6 inches of rolled crushed stone dust, that has cured. To date, it has been used this way for children learning to ride on a small pony, and light lunging of a mature trail horse. It has also doubled as a dry lot turnout space. A top layer of shock absorbing footing (sand or a custom product) can be added for more extensive use with horses, and intense lunging work. Or, the space could be converted as is, and used as a great vegetable garden space with planters - all produce would be protected from deer! There is a short, discrete gravel driveway within the paddock situated on Newman Road, which is situated for trailer parking. The property is a very short distance to Laurel Hill Equestrian Center, and convenient to Frying Pan as well, both of which have public arena space. Its also convenient to trails at Bull Run and Fountainhead. There are a few privately owned farms with arenas very close by in Clifton, and a wonderful, active local equestrian community. A back gate on the corner of the property allows for easy access to a ride out that runs through Clifton. The ride out space is excellent, quiet, private & wide enough to walk, trot and canter on, with good terrain. It connects to a nearby quiet side-street for additional hacking space.
