This property is for you! In this time of global warming, flooding and extreme air pollution from smoke producing wildfires, escape from all of these disasters with your own mountain-top which is high above at an elevation of 1,000 ft. Plus temps on this mountain-top run 10 -12 degrees cooler than DC and Northern Virginia lots and pasture lots in Virginia. This lot is higher than Monticello and has superior views of higher Blue Ridge peaks. This is a unique opportunity to own your own mountain-top in one of the premiere locations in Northern Virginia. Located in the prestigious Hunt Country of Fauquier County, 6 miles from historic Warrenton, this is Prickly Pear Mountain, part of the Watery Mountain Range. At an elevation of 1,050 feet, it is at twice the height of the Washington Monument and has views of Washington DC, Skyline Drive, Charlottesville and boasts 100-mile scenic vistas. The USGS only recognizes mountains over 1,000 feet in elevation as real mountains in the U.S. and this is one of them! The views are stunningly BREATHTAKING! This 52 acres offers elite privacy and security. There is a Fauquier County approved certification letter for the perc site. This property and the adjacent property are conservation protected for privacy and security, as well as perpetually low real estate taxes. This parcel is wooded with rare black walnut trees and you may often see eagles soaring overhead. There is LINE-OF-SIGHT to Washington DC, Tyson's Corner, Manassas and the northern range of the Blue Ridge from Charlottesville to Linden for excellent satellite or relay signal communications purposes. This mountain is rich in history and many of the most revered presidents and industrialists have enjoyed their mountain tops as a great escape to peace and tranquility. Drink the pristine mountain water and breathe the crisp clean air year-round. Unlike valley and pasture areas where smoke and pollution can settle, the mountain tops have an abundance of fresh, clean air circulation across them. The emotion of this incredibly special place is awe-inspiring and gives you a feeling of being "ON TOP OF THE WORLD". Build your custom home and accessory buildings. The property access allows for your own individual private driveway. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an elite custom home site. Private tour by appointment only. 24 hours advance notice.
