Your own farm...right in the heart of Amherst! You will enjoy total seclusion on this 93 acre farm yet you are only only minutes from the library, restaurants, shops and Sweet Briar College. This move in ready home includes the original two story homestead which was taken down to the studs and completely renovated in 1987 when the addition was constructed. The owners lovingly restored the home retaining original doors, flooring and hardware from the 1830's era home where possible. You will find complete and utter privacy on this property which includes a well balanced combination of pasture land, creeks, and mature timber. This would make an ideal multi generational homestead or simply a vacation retreat to share with family. There is so much here to enjoy. Property has development potential. Two entrances on Sunset Drive and another from Waughs Ferry Rd. Shown by appointment only.
