1129 Bair Branch Road, Keeling, VA 24566
 Special Features

Walk in to your bed and breakfast dreams with this gorgeous 3,910 square foot, 1800’s era, beautifully restored and updated historical southern farmhouse, centrally located 20 miles from Danville, Chatham or South Boston, and barely eight miles from the former Carlbrook School. From top to bottom, this house is move in ready and lovely in every way, with many ecologically-friendly details like locally-harvested woods, handmade and recycled architectural details, and energy-efficient additions.

Shaded by a deep, partially wrap-around veranda, wide double doors welcome you in to a spacious front hall with floors throughout the entire house made of pines harvested directly from the property. On the first floor, a formal dining room with original plaster details in mint condition, built-in china cabinet and tall windows encourage leisurely meals overlooking the lawns and mature trees on the surrounding 10 acres of peaceful countryside. A formal parlor, also with original plaster ceiling medallion in perfect condition, is home to one of seven fully-functioning wood fireplaces with restored mantels throughout the house, and it features a unique antique door with a master craftsman’s touch leading out on to the veranda.

Back in the hallway, a sweep of classic semi-circle staircase leads family and guests to the second floor where there’s space generous enough for a crowd to feel at home. Each bedroom is spacious, with working fireplaces, large closets, and views of the surrounding landscape. The owner’s bedroom is large enough to include two generous walk-in closets and accommodate a sitting area. Two large bathrooms are beautifully appointed with new fixtures and fresh colors. One bathroom features a jetted tub big enough for two and a stand-alone shower, and the second bathroom is a jewel box of real Deft-blue patterned tile and bead board wains-coating, inviting the bather to spend some time soaking in the classically deep slipper tub with claw feet.

Many energy-saving details make this home comfortable and ecologically sound year round: mature trees shade the house and perfectly placed ceiling fans throughout help circulate cool air from individual units in the summer, and while thick walls help hold the coolness in the heat of the day, they also retain the heat from the heating system during the mild winters. The partially finished walk-out basement has a nicely appointed workshop space and a ramp for easy access.

Up to eight additional acres may be purchased. Seller is offering a one year HMS Home Warranty ($499 value). We’d love to have you join our community in the heart of Virginia’s wine country, close to restaurants; an award-winning theater named the Prizery, Hargrave Military Academy and Chatham Hall, and much more. Pre-qualified prospects only.
