“A special country place for relaxation, recreation and restoring your energy reserves…”

While situated in a peaceful country setting on level to gently rolling terrain in Lunenburg County, VA—the Love Plantation is still only about a 90 minute drive from downtown Richmond, downtown Charlottesville, or downtown Lynchburg—making it the perfect week-end get-away retreat, or second home for folks also living and working in those three vibrant cities.  Of course, for those retired or planning to retire, Love Plantation would be an ideal choice for a relaxed, country life-style—while still providing reasonably close access to more urban settings.  Literally, the best of both worlds!

The Love Plantation derives its name from the Love family with roots in Lunenburg County dating back to the American Revolutionary War period of the late 1700s.  The overall acreage consists of 75+ acres comprised of 4 adjoined parcels.  The largest parcel of about 46 acres is zoned agricultural and the other 3 parcels of 11.2 ac., 10.5 ac., and 7.4 ac. respectively are all zoned Single Family Residence (Suburban) and represent excellent investment value and potential for future separate sale.

The 46 acre parcel is graced by a circa 1902 Colonial Revival style brick home which has been upgraded and well cared for over the years and has heart-pine floors in the primary rooms on each level.  Most of the original interior details have not been compromised.  The main level has a spacious living room with a hand-made dark walnut mantle and fireplace with a stove insert.  Also on the main level is a den/study also with a dark walnut mantle and gas logs, and it connects to the large, formal dining room which then flows to the pleasant country style eat-in kitchen with bead-board walls and ceiling along with gas-log stove and half-bath.  Kitchen appliances also include a dishwasher, electric range/oven, and refrigerator.   Directly adjoining the kitchen is a separate laundry room with a washer and dryer.

The second story level is accessed by the main front stairway with original walnut banisters and balusters, and a back stairway from the dining room.  The second level is currently arranged as three bedrooms, and there are also three full baths on this level.  There is the potential to easily convert the largest of the three bedrooms into a master bedroom suite with very minor interior work.  Each of the larger front bedrooms has a wood-burning fireplace.  The entire home is served by central heat and air conditioning.

Outdoors, the home is sited well back from the main road and there is a tree-lined entrance drive leading to a circular drive area immediately in front of the home which is accented with tall majestic oak trees and a very large, old magnolia tree to the left side of the home.  Outbuildings consist of a charming brick potting shed near the front of the home, a detached garage/utility building, livestock/hay barn, and a tobacco barn.  The property also contains a very lovely 2 acre spring-fed pond.  Overall, the property is mostly wooded, with some open fields to the front and the rear property line is marked by Hurricane Creek.  Various pieces of farm equipment are also available for purchase, including a tractor, golf cart, riding mower, generator, cultivator, etc. and all in very good working order.

So, it’s all here and waiting for you…your special place in the country for kicking-back, relaxing, recreating,  gardening/farming, and enjoying the laid-back country life-style.  And all this with the future potential to sell the three single-family parcels if the entire 75+ acres is more than you desire at some point.  Love Plantation, please schedule a visit to experience and explore it first-hand—and consider making it yours!
