The Green House is at 5523 Waterlick Road in the town of Forest, the county of Bedford, Virginia.
Currently the land is for sale as a corner parcel for commercial or other use with a noted abandoned ‘dwelling’ on the site. You can buy this 1.58 acres of land for around $395,000 and with the state of the home on the property it is sure that the house might have to be removed. It is a small residence with only 1 floor and the basement. The property is being advertised as a rare opportunity to put a store because the area receives a high daily traffic amount at a relatively busy intersection.
It is unknown when exactly this house was abandoned but it must have been sometime after the 1980’s due to the fact that the heater in the flooded basement is labeled “Sterling Oil Company”, a business which came to being in 1983 for Virginia residents. The basement looks to be flooded with at least 3 to 4 feet of stagnant water. The box of salt water taffy and the can of Hot Shot plus other items look rather new maybe even too new to have been there for as long as the house has been abandoned. The leftover Christmas decorations, teddy bear and random furniture states that the home was not fully cleared when the previous owners left. The socks with lace hanging on a wire give this home a very strange feel.
