Esmont, Virginia

585± Deeded Acres

Located 20 minutes south of Charlottesville among the historic farms of Esmont, Nydrie Stud encompasses 585 acres of gently rolling Virginia landscape. Formerly home to a successful thoroughbred stable of the same name, the farm is anchored by a 19th century 20-stall brick barn. The land features a balanced mixture of open pasture and hardwood forests, and in addition to the barn there are two tenant cottages and an assortment of farm buildings and modest improvements.   


The farm is surrounded by other large landholdings, providing privacy and seclusion despite the proximity to the conveniences of Charlottesville, airports, and major metropolitan areas. Richmond, VA lies one hour to the east, and Washington D.C. is 2hr 15 minutes to the northeast. The open ground at Nydrie is currently used for hay production and is well suited to a number of alternate land uses, including equestrian, livestock, and vineyard. The farm is unencumbered by a conservation easement and holds significant potential for the conservation minded buyer.

Broker's Comments

Nydrie is a terrific farm for anyone looking to purchase a larger acreage property without extensive improvements close to Charlottesville. Its blend of history, privacy, convenience and potential offer an excellent investment opportunity for the buyer looking to build on an existing framework but implement their own vision.
