Oak Spring Farm, Upperville, Virginia


Offered at $70,000,000

One of the most important properties in America, Oak Spring Farm, the Virginia estate of Paul and Bunny Mellon, is rich in history and provenance. Here the storied couple shared their passions for horse breeding, horticulture, and art collecting. The Mellons produced champion bloodstock at Oak Spring Farm and stand alone in claiming international racing’s trifecta by winning America’s Kentucky Derby, Britain’s Epsom Derby, and France’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Mrs. Mellon’s close friend, Jacqueline Kennedy, visited often and rode with the local hunts. The over 2,000-acre property offers extensive equestrian facilities, extraordinary gardens and greenhouses, a mile-long airstrip, an enclosed pool, three primary residences, some 20 cottages, and numerous other barns, shops, and sheds. The overall aesthetic is reminiscent of the English Cotswolds, with emerald pastures lined by stone walls and distant views of three mountain ranges.
