The Woods On Wilson
The Woods on Wilson is a rare large tract of unblemished land that is convenient to Warrenton, I-66 and all points east that still has a rural country charm. Tucked in the corner between Enon School Road and Wilson Road, this 131 acre +/- property is the epitome of a well managed timber forest. The trees grow tall and straight with a nice mix of hard woods at varying ages.
Old logging trails criss-cross the property making walking through the woods a dream. Occasionally, you may pass a large patch of ferns that have taken root in the deep shade and there are several large patches of mountain laurel that add color and texture to the forest. Several large granite boulders stand tall and add visual interest to the land. As you walk, make sure you stop by the old ruins of the original homestead on the property. You can easily see the old chimney rising among the trees standing proud even as the land seeks to reclaim it. The hearth is quite huge suggesting that this building may have served as the cook house for the farm. If you look a little closer, you can find several old stone walls that probably delineated old gardens.
Deer, bear, turkey and other wild game can be found in abundance throughout the property using the logging trails as natural highways. There are two streams that run through the property that act as a magnet for wild game. The streams eventually join together to become a small creek. It is virtually impossible to walk through the woods and not find something fascinating.
The 131 acre +/- has strong development possibilities with the potential to create a total of 10 lots. Since this property consists of three separate tax maps, several highly desirable smaller parcels (between 5 – 10 acres) can be created. The property can be accessed from either Wilson Road or Enon School Road adding to the ease of development. Please contact the listing agent, Sharon Luke, if you are interested in development opportunities.
Despite its perfect privacy the property is convenient to Interstate 66 (about 8 miles) and downtown Warrenton (about 9 miles).
