Tivoli is a remarkable historic farm in Somerset, Virginia. The c. 1903 Colonial Revival house sits high on a hill in southern Orange County with commanding views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounding countryside. The elevated location is ideal, and the endless French doors and wide portico are as functional as they are attractive, keeping the house cool and providing the perfect interface between house, gardens, and land.
Tivoli’s 181 acres are comprised of a balanced mixture of mature hardwoods and rolling pastureland. The standout recreational component of the farm is the Olympic-level equestrian facility. Paddocks, riding arenas, cross country course, and trails are seamlessly integrated into the property and center around a beautiful 14-stall, center aisle stable. The surrounding area is equally desirable and Somerset is known for its high-quality land, scenery, and convenient location. Gordonsville and Charlottesville can be reached in 30 minutes or less, while Washington D.C. is an easy two-hour drive. In a region known for exceptional equestrian properties, Tivoli stands out among the best.

“Identity and a sense-of-place are something we talk a lot about in our line of work, but finding those elusive qualities in a farm is harder than it sounds. Tivoli hits the ball out of the park in both categories. The more time you spend there, the deeper you want to dive into its history, architecture, and land. This transaction was the culmination of a years-long search, and we’re thrilled to see such terrific clients become the new stewards of this special farm.”
