Country living at its finest! When the current owners purchased Stonyhurst, the house was considerably run down. Commissioning the Washington D.C. firm of Donald Lococo Architects, they lovingly and carefully returned it to its original splendor while at the same time modernizing the underlying infrastructure. In the process, the renovation garnered two awards from the American Institute of Architecture. Meanwhile, Rosemary R. Howe Interiors, also of Washington D.C., was brought in to faithfully redesign the inside in such a way as to retain the character of this lovely old house while infusing it with twenty first century accoutrements. What we see today is a delightful American Colonial Revival Country Farmhouse, in pristine condition, centered on a large parcel of rolling land within a much sought after part of Virginia, yet within easy reach of the nation~s capital. It is ideally suited for both equestrian pursuits and outdoors activities, as a principal residence or weekend escape. Middleburg is the fox hunting capital of America. The town itself dates to 1787 when it was founded as a staging point for weary travelers on the old trading route (now Route 50) between Winchester and the port of Alexandria.
