REDUCED! 193 Acres of Hunting and Recreational Land For Sale in Bedford County VA!

Secluded Property with Blue Ridge Views – Great Hardwood Timber and Trails Throughout – Minutes from Smith Mountain and Leesville Lakes

This 193-acre tract located in Lakewood Subdivision just south of Huddleston, Virginia would be perfect for a Sportsmans getaway or for building a quiet country home with a view. This property is comprised of two parcels and contains approximately 1 mile of road frontage on Carters Mill Rd. and Shawnee Ridge Dr. There is a well-maintained trail system that runs through the center of the property that provides access all the way to the back border and to the dirt road boundary on the east side of the property. These roads and trails make this property easily accessible for hanging stands and collecting your harvest in the Fall or for chasing that Ole Tom in the Spring. The property was select timbered about 25 years ago which has allowed the abundant oaks and hickories that remain on the property to thrive. These mast crop trees provide a great food source for all wildlife on the property. The select cut has also allowed some understory to grow up and now provides great cover and browse, and the stream that runs through the middle of this property provides that last crucial water component for holding wildlife. If you are looking for a new hunting property to pursue your obsession this one has everything you need for your next outdoor adventure.

If you have been looking for a quiet secluded property to build a home this property would be perfect for that as well. Along with the road frontage and access trails there is overhead electric available for a build. There are great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the West and Northwest of this property and there are several areas that would allow for these views to be seen. This property is located in a very secluded area, but the towns of Altavista, Moneta, and Bedford are within a 30-minute drive and provide all the amenities that you would need.

With this property you are also just a few minutes drive to two of the most popular recreational lakes in Virginia, Smith Mountain Lake and Leesville Lake. Combined these lakes are nearly 24,000 acres and contain over 600 miles of shoreline. These lakes provide some of the best fishing and boating recreation in the State. There are also golf courses, a State Park, marinas, restaurants and festivals that can be enjoyed on and around these lakes throughout the year.

    Joel’s love for the outdoors started at a young age in the mountains and steams of northeastern Pennsylvania. As a child, it was simple walks in the woods with his Father observing wildlife and foraging for wild berries that sparked his passion for wildlife, land, and conservation. That passion continued to grow as he got older. He started chasing trout in those cold mountain streams and spending more time in the outdoors alone, but when he was 12 years old and his Grandfather took him whitetail hunting for the first time, that is when his outdoor passion became an obsession. “I can remember everything about that day. I remember the anticipation and the excitement. I remember how cold it was and I remember following my Grandfather through the woods to sit on that old stone wall. I remember all the deer and wildlife we saw that day. We never got a shot, but that day will stay with me forever and that is what it is all about.” Joel joined the United States Air Force when he was 22 and he spent the next 20 years on active duty but continued pursuing his obsession in his off time while stationed in South Carolina, Virginia, and North Dakota. He volunteered with managing wildlife and property on military installations throughout his career and managed a 400 acre private hunt club in King and Queen County Virginia for 9 years. At the end of his Air Force career and in anticipation of his career after active duty, Joel’s love for wildlife and conservation drove him to complete a BS degree in Environmental Studies with a concentration in Fish and Wildlife Management from American Military University in 2015. Joel’s volunteer work with the National Wild Turkey Federation and the Mule Deer Foundation while stationed in North Dakota also led him to become part of the Mossy Oak ProStaff Team in 2015. Joel retired from the Air Force in 2017 and returned to his wife Jennifer, their dogs and home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Bedford, Virginia where he continues to represent Mossy Oak on their ProStaff Team. He is continuing his volunteer work by serving as a committee member of both the Bedford Outdoor Sportsman’s Association and the Botetourt Longbeards National Wild Turkey Federation chapter. He also volunteers with the Bedford Whorley Ducks Unlimited chapter and the Virginia Hunters for the Hungry program. Joel continues to pursue his obsession which now also includes being right at home as part of the Mossy Oak Properties Team helping others realize their dreams of owning a special piece of property so that they too may pursue their outdoor obsessions. Joel’s education, love for the outdoors and conservation, and his dedication to the Mossy Oak brand make him a perfect fit as part of the Mossy Oak Properties of Virginia Team.
