Inside A Landmark Sale in Virginia's Horse and Wine Country

A short drive west from Washington, D.C. lies Virginia's Horse and Wine Country, home to some of the finest rural properties in the United States.

And in Upperville, Virginia — one of the country's most prestigious equestrian communities — Newstead Farm stands as one of its finest examples.

Located on the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Newstead Farm is comprised of 352-acres of rolling fields and world-class equine amenities, including stunning barns, Grand Prix course, and an Olympic-caliber show jumping ring.

Yet, perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of this property lies in its storied history.

After a generation under founder Taylor Hardin, Newstead Farm was sold to Bertram and Diana Firestone, whose stewardship help develop equestrian legends such as Kentucky Derby winner Genuine Risk and General Assembly, the son of the legendary Secretariat.

"The new owners plan to maintain the farm as an equestrian facility and keep the spirit of Virginia’s horse country intact," says Laura Farrell, Real Estate Associate at TTR Sotheby's International Realty.

Farrell, who represented the new owners of Newstead Farm, says the sale price of $9,500,000 — which settled in March 2020 — represents the largest on record in Western Loudon County in many years.

"In general, horse farms tend to be more slow moving than traditional single family homes so we were fortunate to find a true equestrian enthusiast to purchase this legendary property."

As the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, sending global markets and local economies into a state of flux, real estate — particularly homes in rural locations typically classified as second-home and destination markets — are becoming an increasingly desirable option.

"Our clients thought the value in Virginia horse country was substantially better compared to other out-of-state equestrian communities," says Bundles Murdock, who maintains a leadership role in the region's iconic hunt community.

"Right now, we are seeing a strong trend of buyer interest Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia, particularly for listings under $2 Million."
