Located in city limits on beautiful Reed Creek.
Chance of a lifetime to own this historic property known as The Reed Creek Mill. The mill & dam were built originally in 1858 & operated as a foundry during the Civil War. The mill was damaged by a flood in 1878. A new mill was built in 1902 on the site & operated for 30 years processing flour & other products. This was also Wytheville’s 1st power plant. The mill closed in 2005. Purchased in 2012, the mill underwent extensive renovations & is now included on the National & Virginia Historic Registries. The mill is a timber-frame, 4 story building with metal roof & siding. There is a new 10 ft deep dock that spans the length of the mill’s façade. A separate vertical flush board siding warehouse, 50′ X 70′, built in 1950, has concrete floor and is free standing and offers multiple options. A 768 sq ft building known as The Egg House built in 1950 has been totally renovated into a delightful cottage ideal for guests or rental. A single story brick house was built in 1970 with 1,080 sq ft and also has been renovated.
The residence offers delightful outdoor decking for enjoying the view & sounds of the setting. A new retaining wall has recently been installed to offer additional parking & accessibility. The large open warehouse has oversized loading doors & an open floorplan giving opportunities for so many uses. The mill itself with the beautiful dam & waterway is open & could be an impressive home that could be a dream come true whether for a full time residence or that destination for retirement & living happily ever after. This could be such a beautiful setting for weddings, parties, galas or that business you have always dreamed of in a setting that is picture perfect. The property is adjacent to property designated by the Town as a future park site, with the historic bridge adjacent to the property under restoration. There is a study on record as well that there is abundant capability to manufacture power from the dam, offering the opportunity be truly self-sustaining. This is a must see!
The brick house is occupied by the current owner & must have arrangements made well in advance to see, as there are pets that need to be crated. The property has been surveyed to allow the house to be on it’s own tax map so that if the new owner wanted to separate the properties, it could be done. The property is being offered as a whole. The Town changed the address of the property to the Reed Creek Rd address. For mapping purposes the previous address was 1555 S Church St. This is also the address that is currently on record on Tax Map.
