********************PRICE REDUCED********************
***NOTICE: The Zestimate on this historic property is WAY OFF!!! Three realtors (including an appraiser) gave us values in line with our asking price.***
Many upgrades done since 2008.
Step back in time to when 3-cornered hats and horse drawn carriages were the norm. This home is steeped in history. Built by 2nd Lieutenant Henry Jeter of the Virginia Revolutionary Army, this BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED and well maintained circa 1775 home on 21.37 acres (with option to purchase adjoining 3 acre building lot), features 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, 6 fireplaces, plus an updated kitchen just off the log addition (which includes a 20 X 25 great room w/stone FP and exposed beams). This gorgeous home also features the original formal dining room and living room (each with its own working brick FP, including a cook FP in DR). The enclosed porch offers a quiet retreat for morning devotions or just relaxing. This home also includes a back deck and covered porch with fabulous views of the Peaks of Otter. The property is fenced for cattle and includes a strong creek and spring. There is also a garage, bi-level barn/workshop w/run-in shelter, and chicken coop w/additional covered area. If that's not enough, there is also a play area for the kids!! GREAT LOCATION!! Close to Lynchburg, Roanoke, Blue Ridge Parkway and Peaks of Otter.
Recent improvements include 200 amp service, new septic system, newer well pump and pressure tank.
Other features of the home include 4 zone oil forced hot water heat, full partially finished basement w/FP & wood stove, metal roof, mature trees, boxwoods and other plantings, electricity to garage and chicken coop. Organic herb garden. Low taxes and utility costs. House has been insulated. Plenty of storage space. Two "extra" wells on the property. The three acre building lot has approved 3 bedroom septic plan, plenty of road frontage and its own gorgeous mountain views.
This property is great for extended family, blended family, or homeschool family. It is essentially 2 houses in one. Also, great for farmland, orchard or vineyard.

Last of all, there is a small family cemetery where 2nd Lt Jeter and some of his family members are laid to rest, and where the Daughters of the American Revolution have placed a marker.
This is an "old house" in "new house" condition. Country living, yet only 5 miles to town of Bedford. Must see to appreciate!!

Note to Realtors: 4 per cent commission possible.
Neighborhood Description
Rural community. House located 1/3 mile off Rte 122. Ten minutes to the city of Bedford, yet far enough away to get the country feel. The house is situated in about the center of the property for maximum privacy.
 
What I love about the home
I love the quiet, private setting, the gorgeous mountain views and the rich history of this beautiful circa 1775 home!
