Great Hunting – Interior Roads and Paths – Abundance of Wildlife
Two hundred and fifteen acres located just north of historic Appomattox. The tract is located on Rt. 611 and has a combined total of approximate 4300 feet of road frontage. The elevations reach up to 750 foot above sea level dropping to 500 ft. Roads and trails meandering through the property make it very accessible. Two creeks run through the property and there is one on the western border. The property is all wooded with hardwoods and pines. There is an abundance of wildlife including deer, bears, turkey and plenty of small game making it a great hunting property. With the established roads and trails there is plenty of space for horseback riding, hiking and ATV riding.
The parcel is located about 8 minutes of Rt. 460. Lynchburg. Liberty University, is approximately 35 minutes West on Rt. 460. Roanoke is approximately an hour and a half northwest on Rt. 460 and Farmville. The Roanoke Region is located within a day’s drive of two-thirds of the U.S. population. The homes of Hampden-Sydney and Longwood University are approximately 35 minutes South West on Rt. 460. A great buy for the price. Don’t let this slip by.
A relatively “new” county by Virginia standards, Appomattox County lays claim to one of the most important events in American history. But long before Generals Lee and Grant met to bring closure to the Civil War, the area now known as Appomattox was home to several related tribes of Native Americans and eventually became part of Chief Powhatan’s immense land holdings.
On May 1, 1845, Buckingham, Prince Edward, Charlotte, and Campbell Counties each surrendered portions of their territory for a new county named Appomattox in honor of the river springing from the heart of the territory.
