Description


The drive to Crossfields, through the horse farms and countryside of Keswick, has often been cited as "one of the most scenic in America, " writes the New York Times. Crossfields' white fences invite guests in through the plantation gatehouse and along a landscape of rolling hills that hold the on-site farm.

The Crossfields main house comes into view after a bend in the road, revealing the red brick and white columns of distinctive Virginia colonial architecture. The front sunning deck and covered outdoor lounge offer views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Guests enjoy quiet, peacefulness, and privacy on the 23 acre estate.

Inside, Crossfields offers the best of Virginia hospitality. The living room, designed with a palette of pale blues and stunning parquet wood floors, is large and filled with light. A Steinway grand piano sits in the corner, ready to be played and enjoyed. Combined with the formal library and a dining room that seats 10 guests.

Guests at Crossfields often find that their favorite indoor spot may just be the Crossfields kitchen. The amenities for cooking and hosting are myriad, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf Gas six burner stove and oven, a warming oven, wine fridge, and an outdoor gas grill just outside the back door. A butler's door leads back into the dining room. Exposed wooden beams, wide-screen television, and gracefully-appointed seating areas create the ideal space for relaxing with friends and lingering over long conversations.

The second floor offers five bedrooms, each with its own private en-suite bathroom. With the finest mattresses and linens, a night's sleep at Crossfields is always a good one. The four guest bedrooms include two queen beds, one king bed and a fourth bedroom with a set of twin beds. The master bedroom holds a gorgeous four-poster king sized bed, a sitting area, mountain views, and a generous walk-in closet. The master bathroom includes his and hers sinks and an indulgent bathtub for relaxing at the end of the day.

The grounds at Crossfields come with their own delights. The *private outdoor swimming pool, located just outside the main house, sits on the well-manicured side lawn. Though the estate offers a bucolic setting, Crossfields is located only 15 minutes east of Charlottesville, and is a short drive to an Arnold Palmer golf course, Martha Jefferson Hospital, a spa, the area's best fine dining, and many local vineyards.

*Due to safety concerns and preservation of antiques, this property is not recommended for groups with small children.

First rate. Home is beautiful , love those high ceilings and all those french doors. Even the library got a lot of use. Caught the biggest large mouth bass that i have ever seen down at the pond. Nice touch with the fishing cabin. Owner even gave us the use of the working golf cart for a day. Enjoyed the fresh eggs delivered by the farmer. All in all a great time very relaxing beautiful views and great location for wine tastings.

We stayed at Crossfields for 3 nights for our son's wedding which was at a venue just a few miles away. The house was perfect for us with large rooms and patios for members of the family and wedding party to gather. The kitchen area was fabulous. Bedrooms and baths were lovely and very comfortable. Our only regret was not booking the house for several more days to relax in the beautiful setting after the wedding festivities were over.

I hosted all my bridesmaids at this lovely home and it couldn't have been more perfect! All 9 bridesmaids comfortably got ready for the wedding here as well as enjoyed the entire weekend in the home. The kitchen was spacious and cozy the the decor was inviting and made me feel at home. I would gladly rent here again.
