Welcome to Elk Hill, a crown jewel rich in history nestled in beautiful Bedford County in the heart of Forest. Located along the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a tree-lined driveway welcomes you to this historic property with 400+ acres of gorgeous mountain views and panoramic vistas. Named for Elk Creek which runs through the property, the main home, a historical piedmont Federal plantation house was built circa 1797 by Waddy Cobb. Still present are many remaining outbuildings of interest. The main house is especially noted for its fine interior woodwork, the handsome proportions of its original section, and its unusual carved keystones. While renovated, the home maintains its original character that earned its place on the Virginia Historical Registry.  Although the house has evolved to its present appearance, with handsome additions made by various owners, the main section of the home is notable for the large amount of original fabric it retains. A rare opportunity to acquire this exquisite farm with stunning views and an impressive history.

 

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.
