PRICE REDUCED. Oak Grove, circa 1854, offers the finest in country living as a permanent residence or as a special retreat. This home has been meticulously restored down to the finest details, yet offers the comfort and tranquility of a farm lifestyle. The home consists of the original two-over-two structure with an English basement and a three-story, rear wing addition which was completed in 1912. The heart-pine wood floors consist of long boards that run the entire length of the rooms. There are six working fireplaces. Enjoy harvesting your own fruit from the small orchard and growing your vegetables in the established garden. At the end of the day, retreat to the beautiful pool area with travertine deck and watch as the sun sets over the forest.
Oak Grove was once part of the vast Mount Airy plantation on the James River, and was occupied by Union General Sheridan's troops in the Civil War. This part of Virginia is as idyllic - and nearly as secluded - now as it was then; yet the metropolitan amenities of Charlottesville and Richmond are within easy reach. So is excellent fishing, camping, hiking and several nature preserves just a few minutes drive away. The nearest town is the vibrant and historic village of Scottsville, where you'll find a friendly community spirit and daily necessities. Privacy, nature's beauty and a genuine piece of American history: if any or all of these qualities are on your wish list, Oak Grove will be your dream come true.
