THORNHILL FARM

Proudly presented here is Thornhill Farm—on nearly 400 acres, it is truly a world unto itself offering not just a place of retreat and respite, but also a place for the action and adventure of a myriad of outdoor recreational activity like hiking, hunting, fishing, boating, ATV riding, recreational shooting sports, nature photography, and just the simple pleasure of enjoying the great outdoors on your own expansive and private land-holding.  In addition to private family ownership uses, Thornhill would make an ideal corporate retreat, religious or other affinity group retreat, or a prime development opportunity for a recreational/hospitality based business. (Lodging, spa, golf, and health related enterprises, etc.).

Thornhill is located in northern Caswell County, NC and is bordered on one side by the Dan River with over 1 mile of river frontage along the Dan.  The setting is very private, being located at the very end of Husk Road and accessed via a stone-columned, gated private entry road. Yet, all this acreage and privacy is only 9 miles from the intersection of US-58 and US-29 (Future I-785) corridor.

In addition to the over 1 mile of river frontage, the overall 391 acres includes about 191 acres of open land, and about 200 acres of wooded land comprised mostly of hardwoods, and other valuable mature timber. There is also substantial creek frontage on the property, with about 5,100 feet on Moon’s Creek and about 3,350 feet on Sun Creek. Other land features include over 5,100ft of frontage along Moon’s Creek, about 3,370ft of frontage along Sun Creek, an extensive road and trail system, pleasantly rolling topography with elevations in the range of 370 to 500 feet providing exceptional long-range views, a stocked 1.5 acre spring-fed pond, food plot clearings, and a 5+/- acre duck wetland area. The entire 391 acre parcel is zoned Agricultural.

Also, portions of the acreage in the higher elevation ranges would be ideal for planting significant acres of a wine grape vineyard, and the ample space in the utility-shop building would support related winery production and storage.
