Selma is a historic plantation with a meticulously restored and updated Federal era house built in the 1830s and sited on the high point of the 50 acre property looking south over rolling fields toward Flat Creek. The dwelling was built by Dr. Philip T. Southall with bricks made on the plantation and laid in Flemish bond. An extensive period renovation with modern updates was completed by the prior owner and completed around 2010. Much of the original woodwork and paneling is intact, as are the original heart pine floors. The majority of the land surrounding the dwelling is cropland and pasture rolling down toward the creek, which provides wide and long views to the south. The property also includes a new 5,300 square foot barn/pavilion that is used to host weddings and other events, with as many as 200 guests. The property is currently operated as an established, successful wedding and event venue know as "The Hunt at Selma", but could be operated as an equestrian facility or other rural enterprise. Property is under 40 minutes to RT 288 and about 15 minutes to Farmville and Longwood University.
