This stunning and storied tract offers unparalleled privacy and tranquility with multiple strong building sites with commanding, panoramic views of the sprawling countryside. With long frontage on bold, beautiful Ballenger Creek, the land is rife with wildlife including deer, quail, turkey, dove and ducks. The beauty of this land provides the ideal potential to create Southern Albemarle's next noted estate. Along Ballenger Creek sits the remains of Boiling Springs Grist Mill (photos in the slide show), constructed in 1780 to grind local landowners' corn and whole wheat with millstones imported from Italy. During the Civil War Sherman's troops intended to burn the mill down however then owner WH 'Buck' Langhorne's slave Peter Jefferson poignantly and successfully pleaded that it be spared. The mill has been owned or visited on many occasions by many prominent Virginians well into the mid 1900's, including owner Wilson Cary Nicholas, a distinguished Revolutionary War soldier and Governor of Va and the 1st female member of the the English House of Commons, Nancy Langhorne Astor. 25 minutes from Downtown Charlottesville but a world away in terms of rural tranquility. Under conservation easement with 2 division rights.
