Just over an hour west of DC, in Virginia's scenic Shenandoah Valley, lies "Lucky Hit," a most beautiful and historically significant country estate believed to be the area's first brick mansion. It is beautifully situated on 86 acres of rolling fields framed in the distance by the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Home:

Lucky Hit was built in 1791 by Col. Richard Kidder Meade, an aide-de-camp to George Washington.

It is a component of Clarke County's outstanding collection of Federal plantation houses according to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.

In 1948, new owners restored and modernized the home and added the west wing which included a spacious kitchen on the main level plus additional bedrooms and baths upstairs and a 2-bay garage in the basement.

The spacious back porch was converted to a 4-season sun room that offers fabulous panoramic views of the farm and backyard.

Today, the home offers over 8,000 sq.ft. of living space including 5,282 sq.ft. above grade, a finished basement, sun room, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and 8 fireplaces (7 working).

Updated 400 amp electric service with generator backup.

Kitchen remodeled in 2000 with cherry cabinets and Corian / granite countertops.

A modern pool deck installed in 2006 is a great place to spend your summers and offers a heated swimming pool, spa, spacious pergola, arbor, plus plentiful landscaping and brick walkways. Pool equipment, pressure tank, pool screen, and heater replaced within the last 6 years. Gunnite warranty conveys to new owner.

Beautiful, mature trees line the driveway and the yard including an enormous oak tree that greets visitors as they approach the home.

Spacious yard offers plenty of room to roam, garden, and play with more than enough space for pets, animals, swing sets, trampolines, fire pits, tennis / volleyball / badminton courts, baseball/soccer fields and more.

As a testimony to its historical significance and beauty, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Virginia Landmarks Register. These registrations do not affect what you can do with the home or property in any way.
