The 95.49 acre Chamblin property is wooded with streams and a pond. It is currently approved for development of 19 housing lots. The gift of easement will curtail the development rights to one home site and no division of the property. The property is adjacent to several other conservation easements allowing for a greater area for habitat development and animal movement.
The Chamblin property falls within the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area. This area was designated through legislation passed on April 29, 2008. Signed by President Bush, the JTHG NHA recognizes the unparalleled cultural, historic and scenic resources within the entire JTHG corridor, encompassing all or part of 15 counties in 4 states: Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia.
The land is almost completely wooded and is under a forestry Management Plan with the County of Loudoun.
