Deerwood encompasses 613± acres of exceptional wildlife and hunting habitat. It has been meticulously managed for wildlife 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 regularly harvested, including a recent remarkable eight-point buck that was officially scored
The land is comprised of mature hardwoods, early succession pine, pasture, established wildlife corridors, and varied water sources. One and a third miles of frontage on Mountain Run marks the property’s southern boundary, and there are four ponds (23± acres of open water in total). Two of those 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 and wood ducks, mallards, gadwalls, black ducks, and pintails are regularly seen here. The third pond measures 4.4 acres and is aptly named the Goose Pond. The final pond measures 7± acres and has excellent largemouth bass fishing, as well as a private yet very accessible home site on its northern shore.
In addition to deer and waterfowl, eastern wild turkey, bobwhite quail, bald eagles, black bears, and numerous other species are all found on the property. 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. 200± acres of the tract have been enrolled in nutrient banking (see below for more information). Although Deerwood is ideally suited for hunters, it is easily appreciated by any nature enthusiast. The established habitat, privacy, and potential homesites make it a terrific opportunity for both individual and group ownership.
