Dominion Star Farm
Come live the “town and country” lifestyle on your own private 65+/- acre farm estate in Virginia’s famed Piedmont region—known for majestic mountains, scenic rivers, and lush farm land. Dominion Star Farm can be your anchor point for enjoying the entire region.
The Bedford County area offers many noteworthy recreational opportunities and distinctive places to visit and experience. Among the best of those are the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Peaks of Otter, hiking on the Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway trails, the National D-Day Memorial and its many related events, Smith Mountain Lake for water recreational enthusiasts, the Bedford Wine Trail for wine-lovers and, of course, Poplar Forest—the masterfully restored historic summer home of Thomas Jefferson.
While located in serene and pastoral country-side, Dominion Star Farm is truly just minutes away from the amenities of the Town of Bedford (10 min.); Lynchburg City, Lynchburg Regional Airport, and Liberty University (30 min.); downtown Roanoke and the Roanoke Regional Airport (45 min.); as well as only about 30 minutes from I-81 access.
The Historic Main House:
Built in 1791, the main house is truly the historic centerpiece of this farm and estate property and is beautifully sited overlooking a 3 acre pond. The home has been carefully restored/renovated by the current owners, and meticulously maintained. With about 3,747 square feet of finished space, it is quite expansive and comfortable with an overall feel of upscale, country-style elegance that is a wonderful fit for the property’s setting.
There are a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths. On the main level, there is a large great room with dining area, a spacious library/drawing room, a separate office, a large 300 square foot sunroom, an over-sized laundry room, and a well-located mud-room. The master suite is also on the main level and is luxuriously appointed. Perhaps the jewel of the main house is the stunningly beautiful new kitchen—with true custom features and highly desirable amenities throughout, including:
- Kitchen Aid duel-fuel commercial 6-Burner range w/griddle & double ovens
- Kenmore high-volume, lighted range hood
- Wall-mounted stainless pot-filler faucet to left of the range top area
- Custom, locally crafted cabinets in beautifully grained hard-maple w/cherry finish
- Granite countertops, and all very high-end stainless appliances
- Large center island with prep sink
- Built-in, under counter wine cooler, and built-in corner window seating area
- Double-sink with window view to the outdoors
- Custom-tiled full back splash above all counters and range and a full-tiled floor
- Generous built-in ceiling lighting throughout and also two attractive ceiling lights
On the second level, there are three bedrooms and one full bath. Two of the upper-level bedrooms adjoin, and make for a wonderfully convenient parents-children suite.
Please be sure to view the Matterport 3-D presentation to get a fully detailed view of the overall floor plan and the many fine interior features of the main house:
The Guest Cottage:
Adjacent to the front of the main house is an absolutely lovely guest cottage that exudes much historic character, along with a warm, inviting charm all its own. The main bedroom area with heart-pine floors also includes a gas-log stone fireplace and mantle with a comfortable seating area nearby, and just opposite the bed is a small dining area. The cottage also contains a kitchenette with full tiled floor, cabinetry, sink, stove, microwave and compact refrigerator—and just beyond the kitchenette is a full bath with an inviting soaking tub and upscale ceramic fixtures.
Once ensconced in this superbly accommodating guest cottage, you will have a very hard time getting your overnight guests to show up on time for breakfast in the main house!
And, again, please be sure to view the Matterport 3-D presentation for the guest cottage:
The Second Residence “Ranch House”:
This offering also includes a second home on its own separate, deeded parcel of 1.5 acres. The 1,600 square foot ranch-style home is well-sited on a prominent knoll, just northwest of the main house site and has magnificent long range views of the Peaks of Otter. This one-level home built in 2006 provides an open floor plan, 3 bedrooms, two full baths and a sunroom, along with a 2 car garage.
Of course, this home could serve very nicely for aging parents, young adult children, or as an income producing lease-rental either on a traditional yearly basis, or for short-term visitors to the area via on-line rental services such as Airbnb or VRBO.
Also, as there are several potential vineyard sites on the overall property, this home could be easily converted for use as a winery tasting room and/or anchor point for an outdoor special events business (weddings, receptions, anniversaries, etc.)—especially considering the knoll setting, with pastoral and mountain views from the outdoor areas at the rear of the home.

Other Structures, Outbuildings and Recreational Amenities:
Just to the rear of the main house is an over-sized 3 car garage with separate bays and automatic door-openers and a covered walk-way to the main house. The walk way is just adjacent to a large outdoor patio area designed for outdoor grilling and entertaining. Just beyond, is a recreation area that can accommodate basketball, volleyball, dancing, and other fun, outdoor diversions.
Also to the right rear area of the house are a barn, pole building, storage building, work-shop and tractor shed. Just to the right front side of the main house, is an historic carriage house with a double-stacked, gabled roof line that could be converted to many uses, such as an art studio or writer’s get-away. There is also a nicely sited 3-stall horse barn situated in a pasture just between the main house and the second ranch style home.
This farm and estate property is an ideal place for extended family living that could include horses, cattle, farming, hunting, or simply relaxing and recreating in the confines of your own peaceful country enclave. Dominion Star is, truly, “a world apart”—but still convenient to many nearby amenities—a veritable “town and country” lifestyle.
With expansive acreage and stunningly beautiful big-sky views of mountains, sunrises, sunsets, and your own pond—Dominion Star Farm can be that special and unique place for you and your family to call home—a place of not only recreation—but of retreat, rest, and restoration for both body and soul.
Reward yourself! Please make it a point to call for a private showing of Dominion Star Farm to explore and experience all the many fine attributes of this special offering.
