Skylark


SKYLARK is truly a magnificent mountaintop masterpiece on the Blue Ridge Parkway near milepost 25 at 3,300 feet elevation in beautiful Nelson County. This iconic landmark offers unparalleled, breathtaking 360-degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains as well as overlooking the Shenandoah Valley. This compound of buildings was designed by noted Charlottesville architect Thomas Craven, echoing the agrarian style of the working, mountaintop farms along the crests of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The slopes of the hills are graced with 14 acres of meticulously maintained vineyards and operated under the name of 12 Ridges Vineyard, a well-established high-altitude, boutique vineyard, specializing in sparkling and still wines. There is a well-sited one and a half story cottage-style residence surrounded by a fieldstone walled courtyard that is complemented by a terrace level apartment. The tasting room accommodations once served as a lodge with bunk rooms for guests and feature a 7,500 square foot terrace to enjoy the grand views and mountain breezes. Additional amenities include a spring fed pond, streams, tennis court and picnic shelter. This is a private domain, a private retreat and wine enthusiasts delight, on top of the world!
