Property Description

Idyllic and rare, this extraordinary home is nestled on a hilltop overlooking fields, pastures and a meandering creek. A trophy property of almost 16 acres, with one of the earliest brick homes in Surry County. The Carter-Miller house sits in a picture postcard setting, with glimpses of the Blue Ridge to the west and north. The estate enjoys a rich heritage circa 1834, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, with details such as original wood flooring and rare faux painting. Its unique architectural and historical features include the original red brick Federal Style home, as well as a 21st Century addition with the most modern amenities. The grounds also include an expansive veranda, salt water pool, 4-stall horse barn, deluxe chicken coop, and 3 car garage. Overlooking Pauls Creek is a charming Log Cabin, constructed from reclaimed tobacco barns. With a stacked-stone fireplace, large loft bedroom and small kitchenette, it provides perfect guest quarters.
