Historic Castle Hill Seeks New Caretaker

On October 29,2016, Charlottesville’s local newspaper, The Daily Progress, ran a wonderful article about the stunning and historic Castle Hill.

“Late one morning in the first week of October, Ray Humiston stands on the back porch of his Albemarle County home — better known to the public as Castle Hill — taking in the view of the nearby mountains. As the fall weather begins to roll in and the shades of green in the landscape slowly start to show signs of changing to autumn colors, Humiston gestures over to his side of the porch, which dates back to the mid-18th century…”

Built in the mid-18th Century, the Castle Hill estate has been restored and updated to twenty-first century splendor. The mansion, magnificent gardens and extensive grounds are currently available for purchase through listing Broker Bob Headrick. The 600-acre wonder is on the National Register of Historic Places and Virginia Landmarks Register, and is under conservation easement to the Nature Conservancy. Newly restored gardens and pool, a complete set of original estate buildings, and a state of the art horse barn offers an excellent opportunity for a private estate, vineyard or equestrian operation.
