I’ve been doing some research since this land has been clearly occupied for centuries. We often find artifacts from past residents, almost always made from the quartz that is everywhere. The Meherrin Nation occupied this area, a group wrapped in Iroquois language and customs. Their name translates to “People of the Water” which seems so incredibly appropriate for this Permaculture haven edged by a river, bisected by a creek and many springs throughout. I love this and wanted to share with y’all.
I hope all is well. While your home is on the market, are you renting any rooms the week of Jan 6-11?
I am wrapping up an event and have accumulated some days off. Your pictures have me drooling for some rest & relaxation.
Greetings from a beautiful snowy Salt Lake City. I came across your property last week and have not been able to get it out of my head. My partner and I currently have an urban flower farm and have been searching for land that calls to us as home to expand our dream. I would love to connect with you and ask you a few questions about the property and also the community. Thank you!
What a beautiful homestead you and your husband have! I would like to figure out a way to purchase your property with the help of a few families. Are you in the process of finding a new home? Are you building your next home? I am asking because I am a builder in the Charlottesville area. I specialize in timber frame homes, using natural breathable walls that are well insulated and provide a wonderful space to live in.
I also own and operate my own sawmill, to cut down on costs for my own building projects as well as others. I would like to bring my family down for a visit to see if we want to move forward with this dream!
Good morning Gabe and thanks so much! You’re only a couple hours away so yes, please come down. I’m sending you an email shortly.
We have found a place, or better put, it found us. Hubby is an artist blacksmith and has taught at the Penland School of Craft, in Penland NC for decades, which is where our once forgotten & neglected next adventure is.
Log homes and timber frame homes have always made my heart happy- good for you continuing this lost art of building. Hope to connect soon.
