The current 361.68 acres represents a portion of what was once known as the historic Poplar Hill Farm. Originally an 1,100-acre estate once owned by tobacco tycoon Walter Grey Dunnington, who reconstructed and expanded the original farmhouse into what became known as The Poplar Manor in 1897. The now vacant 8,500 SF Victorian style Manor Home still stands on the property today and is located at the southern portion of the property boundary. Unfortunately, following several decades of neglect, the manor house has fallen into disrepair.
Water and sewer are available for the development. There is a water tower adjacent to the subject property. A lateral water line currently runs through a portion of this property serving another development known as Fairfield Estates. Additionally, sewer is available and currently has a sewer line that runs through the same area as the water, lateral to a pump station.
The Championship Manor Golf Course adjoins this property’s southern boundary. The Manor Golf Club features a semi-private 18-hole golf course in a spectacular setting and magnificent course layout and come complete with clubhouse.
The property resides within the only Residential Planned Community (RPC) zoning in all of Prince Edward County, Virginia creating a unique opportunity for development in the area. RPC zoning offers flexibility in design and development with many options for residential, commercial, civic and office type uses within the property. The guidelines and requirements that govern this zoning type are broad in nature and specifics to the development are ultimately determined by a master plan for development. The original master plan for this property, was designed as a mixed-use development (residential and commercial use). A copy of the RPC zoning is available under “Documents” at the bottom of the page.
