Welcome to the magnificent Foxlease Farm on 160+/- glorious acres* in Upperville's Hunt Country. Foxlease Farm is the former estate of John Archbold, a co-founder of Standard Oil.

Along with the equestrian updates, a beautiful stone center building was added to the existing 19th-century home. The inspiration for the new architectural additions was from Provence, France.

This circa 1805 residence is often referred to as the most outstanding example of Federal Period architecture. Splendid original details, moldings, high ceilings, oversized windows, and breathtaking scale make this one of Georgetown's most desirable residences. The house was previously owned by the notable international power couple, W. Averell Harriman and wife Pamela Churchill Harriman who regularly hosted lavish parties for Washington's political and social elite. It was also the temporary residence for Jackie Kennedy and her two children after they left the White House following the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The house undertook an extensive renovation project at the hands of Architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, who worked closely alongside Mrs. Harriman to further improve upon the already existing impressive architectural details of this spectacular residence. There are exceptionally scaled public rooms with remarkable moldings and light-colored narrow-board wood flooring. The house is filled with an abundance of natural light from oversized north-facing windows, further magnified by the nearly 12' ceilings. It is situated on an impressive .38-acre lot, an extreme rarity in Georgetown, with a series of multiple terraces on the rear grounds, beautifully enhanced with extensive gardens and a pool.

In 1726, a tract of land known as Hickory Ridge, a high point in what is now Howard County, MD, was patented by royal land grant to Col. Henry Ridgeley by King George II. A stone cottage was constructed circa 1749, and, as George Washington was taking office in 1789, Col. Ridgeley's son, Greenberry Ridgeley, began construction of the manor house, which was expanded in the early 1800's. The property was subsequently owned by notable Maryland families including The Hopkins, The Owens, & The Clarks. During the 75-year Hopkins period, it was known as White Hall, after their family home near Annapolis. Beautifully maintained & carefully restored by the current owner over the last 35 years, Hickory Ridge is listed on The Maryland Historic Trust & lends its name to one of the 10 villages of Columbia. The property is sited on 64 acres in Highland, MD, close-in to shopping & amenities. Approached by two gated, tree-lined lanes & boasting classic period details & exemplary materials & craftsmanship, Hickory Ridge comprises the manor house, the 1749 cottage, carriage house/office, & an English greenhouse. First-class equestrian facilities include two barns with a total of 20 stalls, a separate tack room & gym, eleven double-fenced paddocks, five run-in sheds, two exercise rings, & a trail. Completing the grounds are a 3-car garage & a large equipment shed. The bucolic setting is meticulously landscaped & graced by specimen trees, a large meadow & woods, 4 ponds, historic boxwoods, stacked-stone walls, brick pathways, & English-style gardens. At the Manor House, unlock the 200+ year-old door with the original lock & key, welcome your guests into the stunning reception hall, & entertain them on the sweeping side porch. Choose the evening's wine from the incomparable underground barrel-ceiling wine cellar, enjoy a lavish meal in the gracious dining room, & then repair to the formal living room for an aperitif, or retreat below to your own Jockey Club Pub to draw an ale or watch the big game.
