Buildings and Improvements
As previously mentioned, Eldon Stock Farm’s major improvements are situated in four locations. The homes and out-buildings are older but quite well maintained.
Clover Hill is being transformed into a modern communication center and is designed as a convenient place for hosting outdoor events.
Each compound was carefully chosen for their commanding viewscapes and enjoy attractive landscaping complemented by beautiful, mature trees.
The Farm’s singular value is in the land and fortunately the Lane Family never indulged in building enormous mansions. This wise constraint provides an outstanding opportunity for placement of a uniquely personal imprimatur upon this high, wide and handsome estate.
