Land bordering Little Back Creek and national forest in Bath County to sell at auction

PR Newswire

WARM SPRINGS, Va., June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bonner Farm, a pastoral 317-acre Bath County escape fronting on both Little Back Creek and the George Washington National Forest, will sell at auction Saturday, July 19, with Woltz & Associates marketing the property and managing the event.

The land, located on both sides of Route 39, will sell in four tracts, ranging from 11 acres to 167 acres, subject to a minimum of $399,000.

"The natural beauty of this land is remarkable, even by the very high standards of Virginia. All four tracts have frontage on the scenic creek as well as the highway, and three of the four tracts border the national forest, ensuring abundant game," said Jim Woltz, president of the auction company.

"The property has a rare combination of easy accessibility, hunting, fishing, hardwood timber, and bottomland for grazing or farming. There is even a turn-of-the-century Victorian home waiting to be restored. The reserve is incredibly low for a property of this size and quality, in such a good location," said Woltz.

Bidders will be allowed to bid on individual tracts or any combination, including the whole. "I can see someone buying all of this land for recreational use or someone bidding on an individual tract where they can build a home overlooking the creek," said Woltz.

The auction will begin at noon Satuday, July 19, at the Mountain Grove Community Center in Warm Springs. Woltz personnel will be available for on-site inspections on June 28, July 5 and July 12. Individuals seeking additional information may visit or call 800-551-3588.

Woltz & Associates, based in Roanoke, is one of the nation's leading auctioneers of mountain land, timberland, farms, homes, commercial properties and other high-value real estate.
