Reminiscent of Mr. Jefferson's Monticello! This estate property is the original home of Mr. & Mrs. Jake Smith, who lovingly built and crafted many aspects of this property to become SMITHLEIGH FARM. The grand manor house sits wonderfully on the high rise in the center of the farm, overlooking Smithleigh Lake and the Middle River. It is surrounded by heritage-age oak trees and offers panoramic views in nearly every direction. There is a small guest house that will take you back to old time Williamsburg in design, which is adjacent to the horse stable and paddocks. Additional 4 BR/2 BA Cattleman's house included as well. Currently being used as a cattle grazing farm, this property offers a large bank barn, equipment shed, hay storage, and numerous other features that would be expected and appreciated on a working cattle farm. Protected by a permanent conservation easement to preserve the incredible farm nature and beauty of the Swoope area. This is a one of a kind estate.
