    Description

    Woolf Lavender Farm has an interesting provenance. Named after writer Virginia Woolf ~ this lavender farm is an ideal small farm experience whether one continues to harvest the lavender, or grow other crops. As a smallholding it is ideally suited for plant crops or livestock. As a weekend retreat it is an idyllic setting with stunning mountain views. As a family home it is wonderful opportunity to expose children to the joys of country living. But most of all, it is a wonderful retreat from the world at large to a private world of visual delights.The house has a typical mid 20th century ranch layout. The current owner has put her own indelible stamp on the property by incorporating various woods in flooring and ceiling and having master woodworker Peter Kramer create cabinetry and tables which create a wonderfully organic feel to the public areas of the house. Intricate stone and tile work make the baths a sensual experience. A wide screened porch, together with a wrap-around deck and a stone rimmed back garden extend the living space beyond the house walls. A full basement is currently set up as a lavender processing workshop and cozy home office, but it is easily reconfigured as a separate apartment or family living space.Woolf Lavender Farm packs a lot into compact acreage. Around the house are both decking and garden areas which bring the outdoors in. A stone ledge with a fountain provides a backdrop for a kitchen garden in the back of the house. A small covered structure stores wood to heat a Japanese soaking tub for a hot tub experience with an amazing view. Nearby is a potting shed/workshop for outdoor projects. Below the house are the lavender fields that give the farm its name. Over 500 lavender plants are planted on a sloping hill which affords excellent drainage. These plants are a number of varietie and can be harvested for their oils as well for their flowers. Below the lavender hill is the fenced paddock around the barn. This paddock is suitable for horses or small livestock, has a good orchard grass base, and has both water and electricity available at the barn.Stunning mountain views are visible from every vantage point on this 5 acre property. No matter where one turns, the entire panorama of the Blue Ridge Mountains is visible.
