adjacent to the George Washington National Forest
in the Vesuvius area of Amherst County Virginia
Nestled amidst the folds of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this spectacular Amherst County log cabin represents peace and seclusion across 107+/- acres. It’s bordered on three sides by the George Washington National Forest and offers stunning views of the valley and mountain ridge lines. The winding driveway intersects at one point with the babbling Pedlar River and climbs up through the ridges, rising from 1680 ft. by the water to 2340 ft. at the top of the ridge. The property has a wide 300 ft. of water frontage on the Pedlar River which is occassionally stocked with trout. The border with the national forest is perfect for scenic, private walks, and there are many accessible trails.
The Hearthstone cabin was built in 2010 and is one of their Bob Timberlake signature series. The first floor has an expansive family room with a toasty fireplace and many windows for a plethora of natural light. There’s also a half bathroom and kitchen which opens up into a dining room, giving the floor an open-air feel. Upstairs, there is a luxurious master bedroom which the building plans originally allowed for two bedrooms. There’s also another bedroom and a full bathroom upstairs. The terrace level is 750+/- square feet and easily has enough space for another bedroom and bath. There’s also a spacious deck on the main level where you can relax and enjoy the view. The design of this cabin intimates quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, from the custom cherry cabinets to the cherry handrails. The windows are Kolbe and Kolbe Sterling double-hung, and the roofing is 24 gauge standing seam metal. The flooring throughout the cabin is resplendent and well-conceived, with its wide plank, 15” white pine boards and durable slate flooring the foyer and kitchen areas. Though it provides a serene, idyllic refuge from modern life, it is pretty close to things: nine miles from Buena Vista, 15 from Lexington and Amherst, and a mere four miles from the effulgent views of the Blue Ridge Parkway. A must see!
