132-acre piece of Mellon estate sells for $1.9 million

Formerly owned by the late Paul and “Bunny” Mellon, the 132-acre tract near Rectortown fronts Goose Creek.
Another portion of the late Paul and “Bunny” Mellon’s estate in Northern Fauquier sold last week for $1.9 million.

The open, 132-acre parcel borders Rectortown Road and Goose Creek. It lies just north west of Rectortown.

The Virginia Outdoors Foundation holds a conservation easement on the rolling property.

Washington Fine Properties, with an office in Middleburg, in August 2014 first listed the entire, 2,047-acre Mellon property for $70 million.

After a year on the market, the Mellon estate trustees began offering the property in smaller parcels ranging from 54 to 284 acres, which have sold consistently over the last 3-1/2 year.

Last week’s Marshall District sale easily topped the most recent list of Fauquier property transactions.

The Fauquier County Circuit Court clerk’s office recorded these real estate transfers July 5-7, 2017:
