Property Description
Welcome to Aslan Farm ... ''There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man'', Winston Churchill. Nestled in the rolling hills of southwest Virginia, near the Blue Ridge Steps, Aslan Farm was formed of its surroundings and made of the virtue in its bearing, a horse farm that is at one with its natural beauty and the symmetry of a well-planned property. Its expansive house, barns, and run-ins are all designed and constructed of wood (a Virginia tradition), and form a perfect union with each other, in a blended aesthetic. Few horse properties boast such attention to design symmetry. Eight pastures ring the property along its 1 mile+ perimeter to ease grazing rotations, and to encourage the healthy re-nourishment of their grasses. A river tributary t

flows year 'round runs along its SW border, greening perimeter trails. A mountainside forest rims this border, rising to form a natural barrier over the joining of this peaceful enclave that is carved into the surrounding valley and hills. Only a neighbor's distant barn is visible through the trees in winter, making Aslan Farm a very private reserve amidst hundreds of acres of forest and fields. All pastures (but #8) are equipped with automatic, heated waterers on cement pads. All pastures are fertilized annually. Three-rail wood fencing welcomes guests from both south and north approaches, as you drive onto Aslan Farm. Gravel roads lead to house and barns, before green grass trails reveal the pastures. Springtime ushers blooms from the flower gardens—Hyacinths, Jonquils, Tulips, Iris, and Peonies, followed by Azaleas, multi-hued Ice plant, Echinacea, Susan's, Gaillardia, Yarrow, Catmint, Phlox, and the flourishing Deutzia Scabra and its creeping cousins. The drive onto the property is framed by two pink Dogwoods, its white kin dotting the tree lines throughout the property, and a most expressive Stella D' Oro Lilly garden lines the driveway to the house, all of which benefit from an underground irrigation system along the entire driveway. Main House A log home in its original construction, built in 1990 by descendants of Thomas Jefferson (yes, that Jefferson), the larger part of the house was added in 2008, of stick construction, with D-log siding to give the building a continuous look. Sheetrock and painted white walls are inside features of the addition, while interior log walls decorate the original building. The blending of old and new occurs naturally, as wood logs span the ceilings in all rooms, including the new addition. Hardwood pine floors cover all living spaces in the house. The open room design—seventy-one feet--also features (heated) matte blue terracotta floors in the kitchen and dining room. The Front Room, with its original, random plank wood flooring is marked by a stone fireplace with insert, which when fired up and fan turned ON will heat the entire main level. A cathedral ceiling rises to meet a natural wood railing (built from tree limbs taken from the property) that reveals a large loft with gently sloping wood beams and ceiling. A perfect place for quiet ruminations and a spectacular perch from which gathering guests join with others below. The double wood and glass front doors open the house—new and old—to a 71 foot expanse that includes the front room, kitchen, dining room, and great room, naturally well-lighted with 16 windows and by overhead fixtures, including recessed ceiling lights with dimming. The 33 X 18 foot Great Room, with a 15 ft high ceiling, and two farm-elegant glass fans, is lined by 13 large Pella casement windows, that look out onto the farm entrance, barns, and pastures 1- 5. Each contains embedded (adjustable) blinds. The sweeping wood rail fencing along the road accent one of the most beautiful hillside horse farms anywhere. 100 acres across the road give a sense of continuity to the gentle hilly green grass pastures that are common to the area. Kitchen Especially built by a local cabinet maker to specifications, the kitchen is spacious, gifted of voluminous cabinet space, with pull-out drawers, granite counters (and a tile section around the stove to preserve the horse country aesthetic), GE Café SS appliances, including a double gas oven and stove top. Sit along the raised granite bar to visit as the host performs kitchen magic, or walk around to the business side from any direction. The double SS sink is conveniently located with access from either front or back. The counter-depth fridge includes a large pull-out freezer below and built-in door ice and water dispenser. It will even make hot water. Behind the kitchen is an expansive, ceiling to floor pantry with pull-out drawers, a counter top for all those appliances that clutter the kitchen counter—mixer, food processor, toaster, blender, and coffee station. Look up at shelves for your cook books, and beneath the counter at shelving for auxiliary items. All neatly in their places. The counter top is made of Bamboo flooring in keeping with the wooded aesthetic, and for life-long wear. For cold morning comfort, the kitchen floor is heated, beneath a matte-blue terracotta tile that covers the dining room floor as well. All rooms have ceiling fans and "can" lighting, except the Library and Loft Suite. The Great Room A fifteen foot ceiling rising from its NE side features 8 log beams that accent the 33 X 18 ft random-plank wood floor, recessed lighting, 2 glass dish and paddle fans, and 13 Pella Casement windows with imbedded blinds and natural wood trim, that stream ESE light in the morning, and WNW light in the afternoon. Warm, spacious, inviting, and comfortable, describe the feeling as one enters the room. From Front Room to Great Room, the open floor plan makes for a lavish entertainment space in which 60-100 people could gather comfortably. Leave the horses outside. Library Make a quick turn from the Kitchen or Pantry to the Library, a spacious but cozy corner that features custom shelving in two recessed spaces, each lighted and able to hold 1000 + books. Raise the striped silk Roman Shades and enjoy the afternoon light for quiet reading or resting. Use the guest bathroom conveniently located in the hallway to the Library, and renovated with a large tile and glass shower, granite vanity counter, fixed bowl atop, and oil-rubbed bronze fixtures throughout. A very large linen closet and frosted window to the stone patio finish this 12 X 8 room in the original log home. Master Suite This expansive suite, unfolds through double wood stained doors (a staple throughout) into a sweeping and well-lighted room overlooking pastures, barns, backyard, and rising mountainside to the SE. It features (4) sets of Pella double casement windows framed in stained wood and covered with custom, lined draperies in the loveliest Field of Dreams pattern that brings the garden flowers beneath inside, and the characteristic log beams in the ceiling. The on-suite bathroom features a custom stand-alone tub and double sink vanity and cabinets and drawers of the same craftmanship, heated floors, a 5 X 7' stone tiled shower with 5 heads and high-placed slide Pella windows, and a very large Walk-in-closet outfitted with shelving and hanging space to meet any need, defining comfort and luxury in a single space. Guest Bedroom Very large and given its own walk-in-closet (equal in size to its neighbor in the Master Suite), the room also features double Pella casement windows overlooking the backyard, riding arena, pastures, trails, and wooded areas, and window draperies of the most beautiful traditional Virginia scenes in blue and yellow. An alcove in the NE corner of the room is a perfect placement for a desk and book shelves. Loft Suite The genius of original thought, this dramatic loft suite overlooks the Entry Room, with its cathedral ceilings above, natural wood railing, and fieldstone floor-to-mantel fireplace below, and features the most inviting chalet bedroom with vaulted ceiling, fixed windows that follow the roof line, and double sash removable Pella windows (featured throughout the original log home), and an enormous clothes closet. The view from this perch is W and NE, flooding the room with early and afternoon light. The newly-remolded bath mirrors the guest bath below in every detail. Guests love this space, and rightfully so. Hand Crafted 4 Stall Barn Constructed of wood by experienced barn builders, the 40 X 36 Horse Barn features 24 ft ceilings, 3 permanent stalls with sliding wood doors and metal bars for full enclosure, barred windows between stalls, and side stall windows (with locking doors) that look onto pastures. 12 X 12 (locked) Tack and Feed rooms (fully tiled, and with finished cabinets and shelves, utility sink, and (4) saddle and tack racks), and a 12 X 12 lined and drained Wash Stall on a cement pad, complete the functional space. 10 X 10 foot, windowed sliding rail doors (4) line up with the matted center aisle of the barn, and are equipped with locks for wind protection and stability. A 36" exhaust fan is framed in the E wall. All stalls are matted and equipped with heated automatic waterers. A 30 gal hot water heater in the Tack Room feeds an inside utility sink and hot and cold water faucets in the center aisle. Two frost pumps at either end of the barn provide water to the wash stall and surrounding needs. One stall is a "temporary" model built for quick striking to accommodate other uses of the space. A side swing door makes inside locking possible on both ends of the barn. Positioned on a hill, apart from all other structures, the horse barn enjoys near constant E-W breezes. The barn carries the identical roof as the house and is festooned with identical foundation stone and logs at the gables. Barn lofts will carry roughly 300 square bails; planked floored ground level and loft spaces in the Equipment Barn hold an additional 200 bails. Barns and house carry the same Architectural Shingle roofs, and are stained with the same restoration stain and sealant (Sikkens) as the house—shiny pennies in the sun, all three. A lifetime, covered gutter and drain system finishes this quality barn structure. Hand Crafted Equipment Barn A 62 X 24 ft structure built of wood with open sides for easy access and closed ends for protection from weather, this barn carries the same roof as the horse barn and family home, is lighted and accommodates roughly 200 bails on a ground-level platform and storage loft above. A shed-roofed extension 18 X 24 provides a covered space for large tractors and pickup trucks, or a small 2-horse trailer.
