This Week's Find: A $13 Million Equestrian Estate in Virginia
Over 30 miles west of the Potomac River, This Week's Find is a bit out of UrbanTurf's typical geographic wheelhouse. However, the Newstead Farm is a unique and remarkable listing which houses some well-known, accomplished athletes across its 353 acres.
Located in Upperville, Virginia, the gated estate is owned by Bertram Firestone, an industrial real estate developer, and Diana Firestone, the granddaughter of the founder of Johnson & Johnson. The couple has been heavily involved in the thoroughbred breeding and training world, so it makes sense that majority of land at Newstead Farm is used as an equestrian estate.

The property has a certified Equine Quarantine facility and stables that have housed accomplished racehorses. One of the stables' famous residents was Genuine Risk, winner of the 1980 Kentucky Derby and the only filly that has placed in all three Triple Crown Races.
Alongside the stables, the equestrian portion of the estate has several outbuildings, a Grand Prix field, an additional large riding area, an office, and houses for guests and tenants. The entire property has views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
A renovated 15,000 square-foot Georgian manor, constructed in 1830 with stone and stucco, serves as the owner's quarters. The four-story house has six bedrooms, seven full baths and two half-baths, eight fireplaces, and enjoys terraced gardens, a koi pond, a 40,000-gallon heated pool, a greenhouse and a half-acre pond with a stone bridge and waterfall.
The interior elevates the farmhouse manor aesthetic, entering into a magnificent foyer with soapstone floors. A living room has French door access to the gardens outside. A massive mudroom with stone floors has exposed wooden beams, built-in cabinetry and its own powder room.
The master bedroom has his-and-her en-suite baths and a sitting room with wet bar, a built-in window seat bench, built-in shelving and access to a private terrace.
