Deerwood encompasses 519± acres of exceptional wildlife and hunting habitat. It has been meticulously managed for hunting over the past 30 years and is a rare opportunity to purchase a proven, turnkey Virginia hunting property with a trophy deer population. Bucks at Deerwood are selectively harvested based on age and genetic potential, and the doe-to-buck ratio is carefully monitored. Bucks in the 150+ class are routinely harvested, including a recent remarkable eight-point buck that was officially scored 177-1/4.
The land is comprised of a mixture of mature hardwoods, early succession pine, established wildlife corridors, and varied water sources. There are three ponds (20± acres of open water in total) on the property, two of which are shallow water ponds (9.75 acres and 2± acres) and are ideally suited for waterfowl. The waterfowl hunting on the property can be highly productive, with wood ducks, mallards, gadwalls, black ducks, and pintails regularly seen here. The third pond measures 7± acres and has excellent largemouth bass fishing, and there is an accessible yet private homesite on its northern shore. There is also 1.3 miles of stream frontage on Mountain Run, which marks the property’s southern boundary. Additional wildlife found of this tract includes eastern wild turkey, bobwhite quail, bald eagles, black bears, and numerous other species – in short, everything you’d expect to see in a thriving Piedmont Virginia ecosystem.
Deerwood has entrances off two state-maintained roads, with the potential for a third entrance off a quiet residential lane. The property is under conservation easement, but the easement allows for multiple houses and farm buildings to be constructed. Approximately 218 acres of the tract have been enrolled in nutrient banking. Although Deerwood is ideally suited for hunters, it is easily appreciated by any nature enthusiast. The established habitat, privacy, and multiple homesites make it a terrific opportunity for both individual and group ownership.
*Note: The Deerwood Tract is a portion of the larger Linden Farm listing.

Acreage (Deeded & Leased)
Approximately 219 acres of this tract are enrolled in nutrient banking, a statewide Virginia program whereby agriculture acreage is converted to forest. Once converted, the acreage must remain in trees in perpetuity. The acreage enrolled was selected both for its suitability for the program as well as the newly-forested land’s contribution to the wildlife goals of this tract.
