This 226 +/- acre property is rich in history as it boasts the existence
of historic home similar to those still standing today
along the banks of the Banister River near the historic
Chatham, VA in Pittsylvania County. This unique home was built
in 1800, and was crafted with local virgin growth wide board timber,
and the unique flat stones found only in this area of
Pittsylvania County (Largest county in Virginia).
The This home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room, eat- in
kitchen, and a large utility room. There are four 4 fire places,
with large stone chimneys on the exterior, giving the home all the
historic charm and appeal of that era. There’s a sense of peace
and solitude found sitting on the front porch, as you look out
onto the farmland and forest areas, that lead out to rich fields
and river bottom.
There are several barns and a nice sized shop that
provide the utility to run the farm for various uses that
you can create.
With its vast road frontage greeting you, the drive entering the
farm, allows you to take in the scenery that comes with the acreage.
The views of the white oak mountain range from the road are
spectacular as you gaze across the beautiful pastures and hardwood
forest. The forests consist of mature White oak, Red oak, Black oak,
Hickory, Beech, Gum, Poplar, Maple, and River Birch. The pine
species include Loblolly, Shortleaf and Virginia. The timber value is
significant and is ready for harvest should one desire. Open
land and forest land is dispersed in a way that provides for amazing
aesthetics for many uses such as farming , cattle, horses, food plots,
,timber management, wildlife management and more. Deer and turkey
are in abundance with an occasional bear sighted.
