Property Description

The 361.68 acres of prime undeveloped property consists of 11 separate tracts located in the heart of Prince Edward County, Virginia. The property is only a few miles from historic downtown Farmville and is located just off US Highway 15 (Farmville Road) and only a mile south of US Highway 460. Additionally, the property is only an hour or less drive to Lynchburg, Charlottesville and Richmond.

The current 361.68 acres represents a portion of what was once known as the historic Poplar Hill Farm. Originally an 1,100-Acre estate once owned by tobacco tycoon Walter Grey Dunnington, who reconstructed and expanded the original farmhouse into what became known as The Poplar Manor in 1897. The now vacant 8,500 SF Victorian style Manor Home still stands on the property today and is located at the southern portion of the property boundary. Unfortunately, following several decades of neglect, the manor house has fallen into disrepair.
