A fascinating ten acre lot with privacy, yet easy access on paved roads. The land is moderately sloping and features dramatic rock outcroppings, as well as cairns of stones gathered when this land was a prime lookout for both Union and Confederate troops during the Civil War. Now a wooded hillside with magnificent views of the Virginia Piedmont, the lot has terrific potential for house with modernist style or a traditional cabin in the woods. The timber stand is mostly oak, hickory, and tulip poplar with an under-story of mountain laurel. A functioning well is already on site.
