My Notes

***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.
Liberty Hill Farm and property is your dream come true if you like 18th century, built with quality construction and updates over the years with modern amenities. This historic beauty comes complete with original heart pine flooring, genuine wide board solid wood wall panels, five working fireplaces (one set up for hearth cooking!!) gorgeous mantels, chair rail, solid wood doors with original hardware (including locks), very solid, level floors (some with huge hand-hewn beams supporting them), high ceilings and large rooms. This home has been well maintained and is in move-in condition. Live your dream in a home which boasts a bright, cheery interior, up-to-date insulation, easy to heat with an efficient 4 zone modern heating system of exceptional quality. The taxes are low yet the schools are great!
There is plenty of room for guests or extended family with 3,400 square feet of living space, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Living Room/Library (with built-ins), Great Room, Formal Dining Room, Bonus Room and large Utility Room in the Walk-out Basement.
Add to this a beautiful log addition with a stone fireplace, updated kitchen with lots of counter space and cupboards, country pantry, breakfast bar which opens to the log addition, French doors, and freshly painted exterior.
Enjoy outdoor living in your choice of any number of comfortable spaces including the deck, terrace, original brick porch facing the mountains. Or get cozy with your favorite book in the sunroom.
Organic Herb and Flower Gardens with many perennials throughout the property including assorted Flowering Bushes and Trees, English Boxwoods, Holly, Roses, etc.
The magnificent views of the Peaks of Otter are seen from almost every room in the house and are ever changing with the season of year and time of day. Sunsets are truly amazing!!
For the farmer there is plenty of water on the property including 3 creeks, 2 springs and 3 wells!! The pasture and wooded area have new fencing for cattle or horses. The wooded area includes a walnut grove. The out buildings include a barn, chicken coop (which is part of a larger pole barn) and 2-car garage.
Privacy galore yet only 5 miles to shopping in the town of Bedford, 20 minutes to more shopping in Forest, 25 minutes to Liberty University and Lynchburg, 10 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway, 30 minutes to huge Smith Mountain Lake and Roanoke and just 1-1/2 hours to Charlottesville.
Said to be the oldest house in Bedford County (at least) and built by 2nd Lieutenant Henry Jeter of the Virginia Revolutionary Army, there are endless possibilities: Bed and Breakfast, Hobby Farm, Equestrian Farm, Cattle Farm, Herb/Vegetable Farm, Vineyard, and Wedding Venue. Also great for Homeschooling or Extended Family. Take your pick!!
This is a VERY RARE FIND at a reasonable price!! Very Beautiful, Comfortable and Antique!! Must see to appreciate!! Country living at its best!! A Historic House in New-House Condition!!
This property is a STEAL at $449,900!!!
*** Additional acreage available with approved building site ***
Realtors: 3% if you bring the buyer. And you work ONLY for the buyer.
