Property description

Maple Hills is a 231-acre gated country estate near 50,000-acre Buggs Island Lake in Southside Virginia. This remarkable property includes two fine homes, a private seven-acre lake, a two-acre pond, and an extensive farming infrastructure.
The estate provides unmatched privacy in a rural setting that features a seven-acre spring-fed lake—the centerpiece of a wonderland of Virginian meadows and diverse forest. The property is ideally situated for access to many recreational pursuits the region affords, including hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, kayaking, and boating on Buggs Island Lake. The region is notably renowned for its agriculture and equestrianism.

In addition to its scenic acreage, Maples Hills includes a country home, a large guest cottage, and many attendant farm buildings and workshops. Privately situated off Country Club Drive, the 5,500 sq. ft. +/- home is exquisitely designed with attention given to every detail. The 1,700 sq. ft. guest cottage will see visitors lodged in the height of Virginian hospitality.

Located one hour from Lynchburg, Va., and within two hours of Raleigh, Richmond, Roanoke, and Greensboro, N.C., the estate is ideally located for owners who are relocating or commuting. The property has taken years of intricate planning, many professionals to craft this amazing one-of-a-kind home and associated outbuildings. Using only the best ceramic tile, quartz, and cherry flooring, no detail has been left undone.
