This ELITE property is a rare opportunity to OWN THE TOP OF YOUR OWN MOUNTAIN! Located in one of THE premiere locations in Northern Virginia, in the prestigious Hunt Country of Fauquier Co, an hour from Washington D.C. and 10 mins. from Warrenton, this custom manor house is at the top of Prickly Pear Mountain, part of the Watery Mountain Range. At an elevation of 1,050 ft, it is at twice the height of the Washington Monument! The USGS only recognizes mountains over 1,000 ft in elevation as real mountains in the U.S. and this is one of them! The 100-mile scenic vistas are stunningly BREATHTAKING with a front row view of the Blue Ridge Mountains! This property has significant communications value with LINE-OF-SIGHT to Washington D.C., Centreville, Fairfax, Tysons Corner, Charlottesville, and the N. range of the Blue Ridge, for excellent satellite or relay signal communications purposes. This Tudor style manor house was custom designed by a world-renowned architect and was built with the highest quality construction and materials. The mansion has 9 bedrooms; 11 baths, many featuring imported Italian tile; 9 fireplaces, many with Italian marble hearths; a 3-floor elevator; and potential helicopter landing sites. Walking into the great hall and ballroom, your eyes are drawn to the custom glass dome skylight which is reminiscent of Monticello. The architect oriented the house to the compass, just as the ancient Egyptian pyramids were. The house is facing East for good fortune, as well as cheerful light and warmth in the morning, and to the exact West, a pyramid mountain can be seen in the Blue Ridge, just one of many features which makes this house unique. The marble fountain in the great hall has the compass points engraved into it as well. This home showcases impeccable details: imported gold and crystal chandeliers; teak, white oak, marble and Italian tile floors; custom cherry cabinets; and a chef's kitchen with SubZero refrigerator/freezer, a Wolf 48" dual fuel range, and exquisite granite countertops. The framing wood is Douglas Fir, brought from the West Coast and much of the home is built with commercial grade steel and can withstand a force wind of 125mph+. Rare black walnut selected from the property has been beautifully incorporated throughout the home, used to trim many of the fireplaces and details. The floors all have felt under them for noise elimination. There are 6 HVAC zones, and all are insulated from temperature and noise. There are double insulated windows throughout. This home is one of only a handful of houses in the country to be awarded the prestigious UL Master Label for lightning protection system. There is a commercial telephone switchboard, and wiring designed to handle high call volume. The large Roman swimming pool with a separate whirlpool has been newly remodeled and offers sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There are paved roads to reach Timothy Lane, and the driveway is paved with an electric security gate. This home has an extensive high-security system. This 85 acre property is one of only two in Virginia that holds a conservation easement with the Wildlife Land Trust of the U.S. Humane Society, making it a wildlife sanctuary and you may often see eagles soaring overhead. An advantage of owning land on this mountain range is you receive the benefits of 1,000+ acres surrounding you in nature conservancy, offering peace and tranquility. Drink the pristine mountain water and breathe crisp clean air year-round. This property offers absolute privacy and security. The emotion of this incredibly special place is truly awe-inspiring, and you feel as if you are "ON TOP OF THE WORLD". This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own such an exceptionally exquisite and elite property. The house, surrounding acreage and mountain views would make a one-of-a-kind Embassy satellite conference center or corporate retreat. Shown by appointment only.
