About Carla Giacomangeli

I am a city dweller with a love of the country side as long as I have the option to get to the city if needed!

Love anything vintage and made in the USA.

Love all animals and gardening!

Best quote: We don't stop laughing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop laughing!

Carla Giacomangeli purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Carla Giacomangeli chose Boyce

We choose Blue Hill because we feel in love with the house and the beautiful country setting - you can see the mountains and we are surrounded by 36 acres - 5 acres of fields and the rest is wooded and we are close to the Shenandoah River, Middleburg and Winchester. Blue Hill also offers us the opportunity to get away from the city but is close enough to DC that the the drive is relaxing and if we want to do something there are tons of options - so we can just relax and do nothing or we can plan a weekend of fun things to do!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Blue Hill is a unique home - the word comfy and inviting is the word most often used to describe what guests love about Blue Hill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Peaceful and beautiful spot for our 10th Anniversary! We enjoyed the birds and just being outside :).

The Farm market was a lot of fun too! Thank you for including the brochures!

Fantastic home and property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Blue Hill for a 5 day long weekend over the 4th of July - it was just the 2 adults and our dog for the stay, so it was more house than we needed. The master bedroom was fantastic as well as the very large shower (we loved the river rock floor in the shower). We really enjoyed the hot tub outdoor seating. No matter what time of day, there was a shady spot to be found to enjoy nature. Our dog loved the large yard, he wore himself out playing frisbee while we were there. There are a LOT of wineries within 20-30 min of the house, many of which are dog friendly on their patios. We would definitely recommend this house for couples all the way up to multiple family get togethers.

Beautiful Old Farm House

  • 5 of 5

The original wood floors in the foyer, dining room and living room are stunning. The bathrooms are updated. Very large kitchen. The lighted pillars at the driveway entrance are a great plus when arriving after dark. Large bedrooms, beds were comfortable. We didn't use the hot tub. Wonderful layout for a large group. Our group of 7 enjoyed our stay.

Blue Hill Is My Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

If I could give this home and property 10 stars I would do so. The house is absolutely beautiful and it is the perfect blend of historic elegance and charm tastefully updated with modern amenities. It is decorated to welcome guests and make you feel as if you are visiting an old friend. During our three day stay, I never failed to walk into a room and notice another cute item on the wall, or on a shelf or table that I had not noticed previously. Every room is a visual treat. The living room was huge and the decor was absolutely lovely without being fussy. A nod to modern was the large-screen smart TV with satellite service. The kitchen was very organized and cabinets were labeled so we didn't have to hunt for the right dish or utensil. The coffee maker and Keurig were both used extensively. All five of us had our own bedroom and the very large dining room generously accommodated our meal times and game playing at the smaller table. A favorite room was off the kitchen where the morning sun streamed through the windows, and where we happily chatted over our morning coffee. We also often found ourselves in the comfy wicker chairs on the front porch while we planned our activities for the day. Highlights of the area for us were the Bandy Arboretum, the Locke Store, Long Branch Horse Farm, and visiting Old Town Winchester. Aside from purchasing a few groceries, we also ate at some of the local restaurants and were never disappointed in our food. (Locke Store, Santorini's, Los Wingeez, and V2) The only bad thing about Blue Hill was having to leave so soon. I do hope I get to return to this wonderful property in the future. Communicating with the owner was always pleasant and prompt. Thank you Carla!

Everything and a little more

  • 5 of 5

What a magical place! We were lucky to be able to gather family to celebrate our granddaughter’s first birthday and Blue Hill was simply perfect...lots of space, a fabulous kitchen and best of all, the most amazing dining room table ~ eating, talking, game playing and celebrating all took place there.. Mark, the caretaker, was very friendly and helpful....while Carla, the owner, was welcoming and provided excellent information about the area and things to do. If you will be visiting the Winchester,/wine country area, consider staying at Blue Hill...you’ll be glad you did!
