Historic Val Verde Estate: Timeless Elegance & Modern Function

Nestled in the heart of Culpeper, Virginia, just southeast of the town center along Route 15, lies Val Verde, also known as Green Valley Farm—a cherished historic estate spanning 148 acres. This remarkable property, steeped in heritage, has functioned as a working farm for generations. Its beautiful rolling pastures are complemented by essential farm infrastructure, including a substantial 60x180 free span Morton workshop and equipment shed, a 42x90 Morton hay barn, and a 36x90 livestock barn with a loft. These facilities contribute to the farm's functionality and productivity.

The crowning jewel of Val Verde is its stately pre-Civil War era residence, originally constructed in 1835 by Thomas Nalle, paymaster of the US Navy. This historic home once served as General Pope’s headquarters during the Battle of Cedar Mountain and later as a hospital during the Civil War, embodying timeless elegance and architectural significance. The original structure, crafted in the Federal Design tradition, showcases meticulous hand-pressed bricks laid in Flemish Bond. Two thoughtfully designed additions integrate seamlessly with the original dwelling, blending historic charm with contemporary comfort.

Inside the residence, distinguished features include 14-foot walls, 12-foot ceilings, and exquisite heart pine floors. These are accentuated by a grand entrance hall, a regal staircase, and a light-filled English basement. Overlooking a serene pond, the residence exudes tranquility and refinement, providing an idyllic setting for gracious living and entertaining. Complementing the main residence are a three-bedroom tenant house and a cozy one-bedroom guest cottage, offering additional accommodations for guests or extended family members. Val Verde stands as a testament to timeless elegance, historical significance, and modern functionality—a rare opportunity to own a piece of Virginia’s rich heritage and create lasting memories for generations to come.
