Auction – May 24, 2011 – 11:00 AM
Nestled at the bottom of the Blue Ridge mountainside along the charming country lanes of Lynch Station, Virginia sits the Merritt-Hutchinson Estate and its seemingly unending acres of soft rolling hills, perfectly manicured pastures and the glimmer from lakes dotting the exquisitely-private property. Comprised of more than 800 fully fenced acres, the circa 1873 estate holds a unique history blended with modern amenities and features six houses with a total of 37 bedrooms, and 34 full bathrooms; a large restaurant with guest suites, horse stalls, and riding ring; and an expansive Conference Hall large enough for the indoor tennis court.
While a fantastic study of both Southern charm and old-world heritage is found indoors, the estate’s breathtaking wide rolling hills, dense woods, three private lakes, private trails and expansive vistas from any vantage offer wonderful opportunity to accommodate an enormous variety of potential uses, from commercial to agricultural to recreational alike. Offering peace, beauty and opportunity, the Merritt-Hutchinson estate is simply Virginia at its very best.
Rich in History
When M.T.C. Merritt, worn and wounded after a long battle in the Civil War, traversed to Campbell County in 1873, he fell in love. Wide swaths of Virginia countryside in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, ripe with opportunity, lay before him. Finding its call irresistable, he employed a few friends to care for him and the property as he set to work developing it. The Englishman, years later, stayed true to his promise to deed not only some of his belongings, but the entire estate to its caretakers.
