Property Description

Welcome to The Big Lonely - A single tax map parcel in Highland County, VA (Virginia's Switzerland) consisting of 3,240-acres and a stunning custom log and stone house with a slate roof and one sensational view. A "pure" view shed with not other property in sight. The main house has a first floor master and two guest bedrooms custom constructed of log and stone with a slate roof. There is also a guest apartment/studio above a detached garage and above the stables. Also included are numerous barns and stables, an indoor riding facility, tenant housing and guest house. Located 3.5 hrs from Washington, 2:45 from Richmond, 2 hrs from Charlottesville, Roanoke and Lynchburg and 25 miles to the Homestead resort and Hot Springs. The Big Lonely is a rarity, for sale for the first time in over 30 years - a remarkable property with the opportunity to own an entire valley. There is one road in and one road out and the future owner of this property must be bold in spirit with a true appreciation for the land. The Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources owns the better part of 8,000-acres adjoining so the trail system is virtually endless. The head of Dry Branch which flows into the Jackson river. This is one of the last great places.
