Richmond SPCA to Benefit from Auction of Landmark Virginia Manor House on Nearly 400 Acres

Holly Hill estate in St. Stephens Church, VA

ST. STEPHENS CHURCH, Va., Apr 13, 2023 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Anchored by a 200-year-old manor house surrounded by nearly 400 acres, this historic Virginia estate known as Holly Hill is now truly going to the dogs - and to the cats, rabbits, and many other creatures whose well-being the Richmond SPCA champions and helps safeguard. Thanks to a generous benefactor, the proceeds from the sale of this estate, which is on both the National Register of Historic Places and Virginia Landmarks register, will benefit the local animal welfare non-profit, according to auction firm, Tranzon Fox.

Creatures of both the four- and two-legged varieties will find much to enjoy about life at Holly Hill, including carefully-kept grounds with formal gardens, horse stables with a two-level apartment, fenced pasture land, approximately 136 tillable acres, significant frontage on the Mattaponi River, two ponds, recreational land, and numerous outbuildings.

"This is the fourth property we've auctioned for the benefit of the Richmond SPCA, and of those, Holly Hill is the most expansive and historic," said Bill Londrey, managing partner of Tranzon Fox. "These sales that benefit charities are always some of the most rewarding work we do, so I would encourage anyone seeking a personal or corporate retreat, or a pastoral location for a wedding/events venue or B&B, to visit our website to learn more.

"The auction will take place live and on-site at the property on April 26, 2023, and while there are a couple of opportunities to see the property beforehand, to gain access to the estate, prospective bidders will need to comply with the terms set by the executor. So, I'd say don't wait too long. This property hasn't been on the market in decades, and who knows when you'll have a chance again to buy it."
