From the Zillow listing:


Springdale is an historic home located on approximately 52 acres of woods, pasture, and ponds in eastern Goochland surrounded by adjacent protected farms. The house is a three story, three bay Federal period dwelling built around 1800 and sited on a slope overlooking two ponds to the south and mature woodlands. A frame addition was added later which contains the master bedroom and the entire roof is covered by Reynolds Lifetime Aluminum Shingles. Much of the original woodwork and paneling is intact, as are the original heart pine floors. The majority of the acreage is comprised of mature hardwoods, with two large ponds, including a recently renovated dam, island, and dock. A network of bridal trails is maintained for walking, equestrian use, and recreational access. A two car garage with a one bedroom apartment and office compliments the dwelling. The property is an ideal retreat with privacy, but could be operated as an equestrian facility, bed & breakfast, or modified for single family use. Springdale is less than 20 minutes to Short Pump, about 30 minutes to downtown Richmond, and about 45 minutes to downtown Charlottessville.
