965 reed creek mill road, wytheville, VA

the historic reed creek mill and dam along with a 1br, 1ba residence, reed creek frontage, and detached workshop

How do you begin to describe this Virginia treasure? The setting is pristine, the amenities are incredible, and the potential is unlimited. This offering includes the Reed Creek Mill-a 7,500 square foot structure that served as the economic backbone of the rural Reed Creek community throughout the entire 20th century and was Wytheville's first power plant, a charmingly renovated one BR, one BA bungalow, a 3,500 square foot garage/workshop with an open span and concrete floor, 4.21 acres that joins a planned new park for the Town of Wytheville, and ~500 feet of frontage along Reed Creek. The current owner has painstakingly made improvements to the house, the grounds, the parking, and the Mill. Now included on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register, this property may be eligible for grants for additional restoration.

The mill is a rare surviving example of a once-prosperous milling complex with intact examples of a mill, mill dam, head race, and race way overlooking Reed Creek in an unchanged 20th century landscape. The owner has extensive documentation about the potential to restart the mill as a power producing plant. Federal grants may be available for this endeavor as well as other improvements. Truly a unique property, you can't truly appreciate the potential without touring the facilities. Being adjacent to the new planned town park is a huge plus as the park also includes a historic bridge that crosses over the creek and adds a unique feature to the viewshed.  Zoned M-1 to allow for a myriad of uses-this is your chance to turn the Mill property into your dream project. Come see for yourself!
