Property Description

Welcome to "Hopewell", one of Louisa County's most important historic properties. Wind through the stand of cedar trees, past the pond, and have the shadow of the Southwest Mountains behind you. The central portion of the home dates back to 1785 and was owned at that time by Rev. James Waddell aka, the "Blind Preacher." Other notable visitors include Meriwether Lewis and Gov. James Barbour who were schooled on the property. The home has two newer additions including a two car garage. The historic portion has been thoughtfully restored to respect the home's original 18th century features that include pine flooring, wainscoting, many original doors and hinges, and several mantels. With 147 acres of property in both Albemarle and Louisa counties, the farm currently is used for agricultural farming as well as an Equestrian retreat with 4 stall barn. Barn includes tack/feed room, wash stall, hay loft, and storage. With 90 acres of open land, the farm can serve a multitude of agricultural purposes and would be an excellent equestrian eventing property. Close to Charlottesville, Keswick Hunt, and Barboursville Vineyard this property is truly in a prime location. Virtual Tour attached.
