The Virginia Hunt Country, nestled in the rolling hills of the Piedmont just west of historic Middleburg, is once again the location of this tour and features properties in Upperville and Rectortown. Part of the original Mellon Rokeby Farm and located next to the Oak Spring Garden Foundation is Oak Spring, formerly the “Brick House,” a private residence from the early Mellon era. Also showcased on the Middleburg tour are Gum Tree Farm, a working sheep farm, and the lovely gardens of nearby Claybrook. Visitors will be delighted by the variety of these grand estates and landscapes that celebrate the open spaces of this gorgeous part of Virginia.

Please note “Little Oak Spring,” the former home of Paul and “Bunny” Mellon is also open for touring and requires a separate ticket.
