Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest family-owned residential real estate company in the United States and an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, has announced it has listed an historic estate that is the site of the oldest homestead in Campbell County, Va. The property, established in 1758, is located at 570 Wyndholm in Evington, Va., and is listed by Long & Foster’s Michele Howard for $2.95 million.
“This sprawling property is ideal for someone who is seeking a private retreat or simply loves the countryside,” Howard said. “The home’s current owners really paid great attention to keeping the home in its original style with period-specific details. Additionally, it would make a fantastic business opportunity for those who have a love of horses with its attached equestrian facility.”
The beautiful estate was built by Colonel Jeremiah Early who served as a member of the Virginia Militia and it includes a 184-acre equestrian farm that has been impeccably maintained and updated. The driveway was once traveled by the Overland Stage Coach line. The property has been lovingly cared for by the current owners for the past 25 years.
In the midst of the tranquil country-side, the main home on the estate is surrounded by elegant traditional gardens and mature trees and was rebuilt in 1988. With 5,200-square-feet of living space, the home includes four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Solid walnut doors, cabinets and trim, elevated ceilings, Corian counters, walnut floors, and four fireplaces, are among some of the home’s wonderful features.
Upon entering the home, the foyer unfolds into an open staircase and showcases the home’s stately moldings and attention to detail. The first floor includes a formal living room, a traditional dining room with fireplace and brass chandelier, a den with fireplace, the updated, an eat-in kitchen and a welcoming wood-paneled library with another fireplace. The home’s first-floor master suite, which also has its own fireplace, has been updated to include an en-suite bathroom.
The second floor of the estate includes an additional two bedrooms with a possible playroom or dressing area, as well as a sitting area and two bathrooms. The home’s basement is partially finished, and could make an ideal suite for in-laws or an au pair, with the finished area containing two bedrooms, a small nursery, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. Rounding out the main home exterior is a lovely landscaped patio and pool in the back yard as well as a two-car garage.
The Edgewood Farms property also encompasses a fantastically maintained, 13-stall horse stable with an apartment and lodge/office space. This facility has been used for equestrian boarding and training and has an on-site riding facility, a guest cottage, a separate farm office and a 1,300-square-foot metal storage building/workshop, a hay barn and a pole barn. Edgewood Farms is an ideal property for those who love equestrian or want to own their own equestrian business.
