Horse enthusiasts searching for a retreat within 30 minutes of downtown Richmond will not find another property like 15391 Henry Forest Way in Montpelier, Virginia.

Golfers will appreciate the proximity of this home, just four miles away from not one, but two premier golf courses: The Dominion Club and The Hollows Golf Club. Whether you’re teeing off or saddling up, this home is ideal for buyers who relish the thrill of a perfect drive as much as the rhythm of a graceful canter. 

“This property is a beautiful and rare find that you, your family and your horses will love to call home,” said Rowe. “With so many special and rare qualities, you must see it to truly appreciate it.” 

As you arrive at this property, you’ll first notice its park-like setting with picturesque, wooded, and meticulously manicured land that surrounds this stately brick home. You’ll greet your guests in style in the magnificent two-story foyer with an elegant staircase and gleaming hardwood floors. The open floor plan provides enticing views of the first-floor rooms.  

The heart of the home is the chef’s dream kitchen featuring maple cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a large island, and a walk-in pantry. The adjacent informal dining nook offers breathtaking views of the surrounding woodland, while a formal dining room provides an elegant space for entertaining guests. Hardwood floors grace the formal living room, creating an inviting atmosphere for gatherings. 

“Experience peaceful living amidst mature landscaping, spacious paddocks, and a stable for your beloved horses,” said Whitney Pace. “This exquisite home boasts an open floor plan flooded with natural light, offering a seamless blend of sophistication and comfort.” 

Unwind in the family room, where a charming stone fireplace serves as the focal point, overlooking the serene landscape. Sip your morning coffee while sitting in the elegant sunroom as you watch your horses graze just steps away. Additionally, a main level bedroom with a full bathroom provides flexibility and convenience. 

The second floor is a haven of relaxation, featuring a primary bedroom with a sitting room, a recently upgraded, spa-like bathroom, and two walk-in closets. A freshly painted second bedroom has a walk-in closet and access to a recently updated jack-and-jill bathroom opening to the third bedroom, while a spacious fourth bedroom offers an ensuite bathroom. 

For ultimate entertainment, retreat to the fully finished basement with a media room, or step outside to the newly installed deck overlooking the peaceful backyard with a built-in fire pit—an ideal setting for outdoor gatherings and relaxation. 

Just a stone’s throw away from the main residence, discover well-fenced paddocks, a 3-stall barn with a wash stall, a heated tack room, and storage. The barn overlooks a sprawling riding arena with stadium lights, accompanied by a covered porch ideal for observing equestrian activities. With its own gated entrance and circular driveway, the barn provides convenience and functionality, perfect for storing horse trailers, tractors, or conducting riding lessons. 

Explore well-maintained equestrian riding trails meandering throughout the property, offering endless opportunities for leisurely rides and exploration. The barn is equipped with a separate power meter, hot and cold water, ensuring comfort and convenience for both humans and horses alike.
