County supervisors approve sale of “surplus” real estate
This 3.5-acre parcel in Bealeton, assessed for tax purposes at $619,500, lies across Route 28 from Grace Miller Elementary School.
Fauquier’s board of supervisors Thursday agreed to sell eight “surplus” county-owned properties that could produce $2 million or more.
The parcels — two of which include single-family homes — total about 35 acres.
A real estate firm will be hired to market the properties, County Administrator Paul McCulla told the supervisors. The board would have to approve any sales contracts.
The parcels include:
• A 3.5-acre parcel on Route 28 across from Grace Miller Elementary School at Bealeton. The lot has “Planned Residential Development” zoning. Valued for tax purposes at $619,500, the lot initially had been planned for a new fire station. However, since then a fire and rescue station has been planned at the nearby Mintbrook mixed-use community.
• A 3.9-acre lot on Shepherdstown Road at Vint Hill. The property has agricultural zoning. For tax purposes, the county values it at $73,600.
• Two lots on Crawleys Dam Road near Goldvein. Both parcels have agricultural zoning. For tax purposes, the county values the 2.1-acre lot at $94,000 and the 1.24-acre lot at $83,000.
• A 22.8-acre lot at Ritchie and Elk Run roads near Midland. The lot has agricultural zoning. For tax purposes, the county values it at $137,000.
• A single-family home on one acre at 4355 Lake Brittle Road near New Baltimore. The property has agricultural zoning. For tax purposes, the county values the property at $278,500.
• A seven-tenths of an acre portion of a 2-acre parcel on Keith Street in Warrenton, across from the town cemetery. The property has “Public-Semi-Public” zoning. For tax purposes, that portion of the lot could be valued at about $600,000.
• A single-family home on a half-acre at 7252 Fifth St. in Remington. The property has residential zoning. For tax purposes, the county values it at $152,100.
