With a celebrated past, this grand estate is a magnificent excursion through 19th-century design that has been enhanced by contemporary luxury comforts. Glen Roy encompasses 60 acres of woods, pastures, and sweeping lawns that extend to the Ware River. This Greek Revival is a classic four-over-four Georgian plan with a 3-section center hall and a central staircase that winds three floors up to a sky-lit cupola with widow's walk. With 15-foot ceilings downstairs and 14-foot upstairs and 12 working fireplaces, the timeless proportions create an elegant, yet comforting ambiance. Thoughtful and unique details abound, original architectural features distinguish the design: over-sized windows and doors with Greco-Egypto surrounds, heart pine floors, and plaster walls and ceilings. A 19th-century carriage house has become a 7-room guest house with two bedrooms, two baths, dining room, living room, and kitchen. An early 18th-century doctor's office is now a delightful library. A frame, 2-bay garage includes a smart two-room apartment with kitchen. The swimming pool is framed by a picket fence and English border. Other dependencies: striking, antebellum grain barn, frame stable, sheep shed and garden shed. A private pier offers deep, protected water. With elegant entertaining spaces and incomparable craftsmanship, this rare estate inspires grandeur of days past to perfectly complement its inspiring surroundings. Glen Roy is the ultimate Virginia river country home, possessing significant history, exquisite original architecture, estate presence, and coastal lifestyle.
