Nellysford, VA, United States

We have 2 horses, 2 dogs, 2 cats, chickens and quails that need looking after while we are gone. All animals live outside.
This 3 bedroom home is on a 17 acre farm near Nellysford has animals nearby and a large garden, plus a yoga studio in the house and plenty of space to play. There are Sonos speakers in every room of the house plus a wonderful vinyl collection. The full kitchen has a blender, toaster, coffee maker, panini press, waffle maker, and electric griddle. There is a hot tub which uses a chlorine-free system, Baqua Spa. The house faces southeast, so it does not get sunsets, but does have moon rises, truly special when seen from the upstairs balcony. The sound of Spruce Creek can lull you to sleep. During the summer months there is a large garden where seasonal produce can be available, and there is a herb garden next to the house for meals and a fun sensory adventure.
The residence is a 5-minute drive from the town of Nellysford, Virginia. It is a rural location and car hire is essential. There are 2 horses, chickens, 2 cats, and a dog living on the property but none inside the house.
