NEWS RELEASE: A 979 acre acre estate containing tunnels, canals and stone walls from George Washington’s bold James River Kanawha Project is heading to auction on October 28, 2020 at The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center.
Known as RiverStone Ranch, the property has remained in private ownership for more than 200 years. It offers 2+ miles of river frontage on the James River and a fully-furnished log cabin (3 bed/2 full bath). Recreation includes a new skeet range designed by Virginia Tech clay/skeet shooting coach. The property also features over seven miles of hiking /ATV mountain trails.
“This 979± ranch with James River frontage captures the quintessential tenets of Virginia living, including unforgettable adventures, natural beauty, and living history,” said head of Hall and Hall Auctions, Scott Shuman. “RiverStone Ranch is surrounded by the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains, but still accessible to major metropolitan areas.”
