COTTAGE FARM - Historic mid-1800s Victorian cottage nestled against the Blue Ridge Mountains exudes timeless elegance and charm on almost 5 acres of gorgeous grounds. Inside, impressive historic architectural features abound including towering 10' ceilings, hardwood floors, bay windows, original door transoms, bold moldings, and 7 non-operational coal burning fireplaces with ornate mantels. Double front parlors invite gathering, while expansive formal dining room and large kitchen with propane range and Viking exhaust hood offer opportunities for culinary entertaining. Previously operated as a bed and breakfast, the property's accommodations include convenient first floor master suite with laundry room and four additional upstairs bedrooms.

A private screened porch overlooks mature landscaping with massive splendidly old trees, colorful daylilies, and thousands of daffodils. Outside, four outbuildings adorn the property including a detached three-car garage, workshop with additional storage space, and well house with hand-dug well. Important additions and replacements include a new roof, whole house water filter with UV light, generator hookup with separate panel, and hand pump for back-up water supply. Many nearby recreational amenities like the James River, the Maury River, Natural Bridge State Park, and George Washington National Forest provide endless outdoor adventure. Set among other significant historic properties in southern Rockbridge County such as Willow Grove, Balcony Downs, Breezy Heights, Echols Farm, Virginia Manor, and the Salling House, Cottage Farm offers proximity to historic Lexington (Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Institute), Buena Vista (Southern Virginia University), and Lynchburg (Liberty University and Randolph College). This estate, with its rich history and scenic surroundings, provides a rare opportunity to own a piece of timeless beauty and tranquility.
