Description

142 acres of field, forest and regrowing timberland and a 4500 sq. ft. house in the Findlay Mountain Ag/Forestal District. The heart of the home is the log kitchen believed to date from the 18th c. An 1850 addition added the historic home and a 1996 addition added grand entertaining spaces (including a 25 x 32 greatroom) and a second floor master suite. Outside you'll find a pool and pool house, and a yard enclosed by an owner-built Jeffersonian serpentine brick wall. There's enough land in pasture for livestock, and there are several springs and a bold stream. On the flank of Findlay Mountain you'll find a building site with an incredible panoramic Blue Ridge vista.
