Description

Have you ever wanted to own your own piece of history? Now is your chance to own this historic Georgian home, Locust Grove (Circa 1751.) Sit back on one of four beautiful porches enjoying the sounds of two Koi ponds or take a walk down to the large stocked pond on the property. Set on a hill fronted by centuries-old pecan and walnut trees, the 86 acres is an original portion of the 1,688-acre land grant from King George II of England in 1751 to Stephen Bedford, Captain of the Colonial Militia. (According to a patent record in the Land Office in Richmond VA.) This beautiful piece of history, lovingly restored, boasts a historical corn crib (turned chicken coop), implement shed, pump house, garden shed, a shop with an attached garage which is heated and cooled, and a large metal building (63’ x 42’) with concrete floor. Ten frost-free water hydrates are situated conveniently around the property to water many of the established flower gardens. Come enjoy the privacy of beautiful views in all directions. The roof and windows have been replaced since the first of the year 2022.

 

Note: This home and its accompanying acreage once served as a plantation, which operated via the labor of enslaved persons. We encourage any interested buyers to make efforts to understand this complicated history.
