Mount Pleasant is a perfectly preserved historic farm, comprised of 107 acres in the northern Shenandoah Valley. Enter the manor through a magnificent center hall with high ceilings and beautiful millwork. Original details have been carefully restored, including heart pine floors with rich golden patina, original trim, door latches and mantelpieces. High ceilings throughout and great circular flow make this a home for elegant entertaining.
Mount Pleasant was constructed in 1812 by Isaac Bowman (1757-1826) a Revolutionary War veteran and member of the pioneering Shenandoah Valley Bowman family. He was a grandson of Jost Hite, who is credited with having brought the first groups of European settlers from the Rhine River region to the northern Shenandoah Valley. Brick for the gable roofed, five-bay Federal style house was fashioned on the property site, and remains in perfect condition.
Mount Pleasant is surrounding by conserved properties, and is in the important Cedar Creek Battlefield Area. The Civil War swirled around the edges of Mount Pleasant but did not directly touch it. Although the fords across Cedar Creek near the property were frequently used by both Union and Confederate troops, and troop encampments took place across the creek from Mount Pleasant, no military engagements occurred on the property itself.
The property is permanently protected by conservation easement, which ensures that property taxes always remain at the lowest possible rate. The property location provides an easy commute into Northern Virginia and DC, yet feels a world away.
