From the Zillow listing:


208 acre property with incredible Blue Ridge mountain views, and long frontage on the Rapidan river. Old Ford is located in southern Madison county, and is mostly open fields, ideal for live stock. The topography is mostly rolling, except for a large bottom land field, that is currently used as a polo field. The Old Ford house was built in the 1860’s and has a great view of the bottom land field, and river. The three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is privately located on the property. Other improvements include one other home, guest cottage, and two barns. A great parcel that offers incredible views, river frontage, and in a desirable area. The land is protected by a conservation easement that allows one division right.
