Whether you are searching for a reacreational tract of land or a beautiful place to build your new home, this 70+/- acre parcel is a must see! The land offers a beautiful hardwood forest, crystal-clear mountain springs which create a small stream that flows gently beside the circa 1900 log cabin. Enjoy relaxing on the porch while listening to the water as it flows over the rocks. The cabin is being sold "as-is" but could be restored or expanded. You will love the beautiful old chestnut logs and stone work!
In front of the cabin is a 3-4 acre meadow which, with its fertile soils, is a perfect location for your small sustainable farm. There's plenty of open land to plant your large vegetable garden, small orchard or vineyard. Enjoy harvesting some of the fruit from a few of the old fruit trees that remain on the property. There's room for your livestock as well!
At the center of the property you will find a small spring-fed pond which is frequented by the various wildlife living nearby. The property is home to many deer, turkey, bear, rabbits and squirrels.
You will love exploring all the well-kept trails throughout the property. They are perfect for peaceful walks or rip-roaring through with ATVS.
In the north-western corner of the property there is an 8-10 acre loblolly pine planting. It is ready for its first thinning cut and will provide you with future revenue as the pines continue to grow.
The 30-minute drive into Charlottesville is a breeze with Route 29, a four-lane highway without any stop lights between the property and Interstate 64! For quick groceries, local restaurants and even a gym, you can drive five minutes to Lovingston, the county seat for Nelson County.
There are lots of fun activities available nearby with several wineries, breweries, cideries, distilleries and restaurants in Lovingston as well as along the Route 151 Wine & Brew Trail. Golf courses can be found at Stoney Creek, Wintergreen and Winton. Should you want to go hiking in the Blue RIdge Mountains, you will find Crabtree Falls as well as the Appalachian Trail about 30 minutes away.
