Property Description

Historic (c. 1820) antebellum 47-acre homestead, overlooking a serene meandering section of the James River, in the Howardsville area. Majestichardwoods and the elevated homesite offers complete privacy for the home. The interior, largely preserved, retains original details such as hardwood flooring, fireplaces, original woodwork and hardware. Numerous outbuildings—including a lovely 19th c. one-room cottage and smokehouse—compliment the grounds. Nearby, a new, 2 story, 40x60 on-slab barn with electricity, water, septic, provides ample equipment storage; above, a loft space that would make an excellent apartment or guest quarters. Noteworthy residents include General Omar Bradley, who authored his WWII memoirs from this peaceful setting.
