5 Friday Fauquier factoids: Pricey real estate listings

North Wales, listed at $29.95 million, ranks as the most expensive real estate on the market in Fauquier.

Fauquier properties with asking prices of $5 million or more listed on Realtor.com as of Friday afternoon.

North Wales, a 23-bedroom mansion on 664 acres along Springs Road west of Warrenton, tops the list. It has an asking price of $29.95 million.

The high-priced listings also include:

Fleetwood Farm, 2,490 acres near Delaplane, at $21.7 million.

“Patrickswell,” a 308-acre farm near Atoka, at $10 million.

21.77 acres at Blackwell Road and the Eastern Bypass in Warrenton for $7.9 million.

130 acres at Old Tavern Road and Interstate 66 near The Plains at $5.9 million.

366.2 feet

Length of the Waterloo Bridge that crosses the Rappahannock River about seven miles west of Warrenton.

Built in 1879, the steel truss bridge deck measures just more 11 feet wide.

The Virginia Department of Transportation on Jan. 6 awarded a $3.65-million contract for restoration of the bridge, closed five years ago because of safety concerns.

The span, which carried 680 vehicles a day, should reopen by May 2021.


Columns support the porticos and second-story porch of the county-owned Warren Green Building in downtown Warrenton.

The Warren Green Hotel, originally built on the site of the Norris Tavern in 1819, burned in 1874. Rebuilt two years later, it continued to operate as a hotel into the 1950s.

The county purchased it in 1960 and undertook a series of renovations. The painted brick structure houses county administration, planning and the commissioner of revenue, along with government meetings.


“Customer touchpoints” at the Fauquier County Public Library’s three branches in 2019.

That total includes circulation of 405,000 books and materials, 218,000 visitors and total program attendance of 18,021.

17 percent

Of the homes sold in the Town of Warrenton between November 2016 through October 2019 meet criteria as “affordable,” according to the Greater Piedmont Realtors.

Median household income stood at $70,863.

The maximum price of an “affordable” home stood at $268,274.

Under the formula, median income would require the buyer to spend no more than 30 percent of monthly income on housing.
