If you’re in the market for an equestrian hobby farm south of the border, then the estate  that once belonged to acting legend Robert Duvall might be for you. The property is called Butchers Run and is set in iconic Virginia Hunt Country – think Jackie Bouvier Kennedy and you get the picture. Built in 1820, the 28-plus acre estate has a 5,542 sq. ft. house with five bedrooms and five bathrooms.

But we know you only really want details about the barn, right? The estate comes with an eight-stall courtyard barn complete with tack room, wash stalls, and an office. Six paddocks, riding ring, and four run-in sheds round out the horsey fixings.

The Oscar-winning Duvall, now 93, is a lifelong horseman and a passionate fan of show jumping, even being spotted in Wellington and at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto to take in classes. Fans of The Godfather actor may recall his many roles in the westerns, including the classics Lonesome Dove, Joe Kidd, True Grit and of course Tender Mercies, which nabbed him the Academy Award.

Although Duvall no longer lives on Butchers Run, it’s not the only horse farm in Virginia associated with him. His main equestrian estate is the 300-acre Byrnley Farm and was featured in Architectural Digest  in 2002. The actor and producer lives with his wife Luciana, a tango dancer he met in Argentina. The couple have since appeared onscreen together including the movie Wild Horses that Duvall produced.

Married since 2005, they also posted personalized holiday images with horses and dogs on the star’s official Facebook page.  And as recently as 2022, he posted a hilarious image of himself horsing around with one of his equines.

So, if you’re a fan of historic homes, horses, and Robert Duvall, there’s a piece of real estate with your name on it.
