Historic Whitewood, located in the heart of Powhatan County on the Huguenot Trail Corridor. Whitewood is situated on a picturesque 116 acres and features mature hardwoods, rolling pastures, and a stocked pond. The construction of this beautifully maintained 3,306 square foot main residence began in the 1850s when The Civil War interrupted its completion. A letter was sent to the U.S. Secretary of State pleading to spare the destruction of the home: The request was granted, and the residence was completed after the War. The Whitewood Homestead features original wide plank heart pine floors and solid wood doors with antique hardware that can be found throughout this stately home. The original kitchen house and well house have been incorporated into the structure of the home and are now part of everyday living. The old school house remains on the property where Robert E Lee’s niece and nephew did their schoolwork.
Perfect opportunity for creating a delightful bed & breakfast, agri-tourism, horses -- the possibilities are endless.
