On the Market: Historic Charm with Modern Amenity

Classic Greek Revival

Antebellum Gem in Scenic Gloucester County

Those searching for the rare combination of historic charm and luxurious modern amenities will be thrilled by Glen Roy.
This 58-acre estate in Gloucester, Virginia, has 750+ feet of waterfront along the Ware River. On the grounds are seven outbuildings, including a magazine-worthy three-bedroom guest cottage, a detached two-car garage with an office and apartment above, an 18th-century library, and four barns.
Built-in 1853, the 7,136 square-foot house is a classic Greek Revival style that was occupied by Union soldiers who used the widow's walk to spy on Confederate troops. From that same perch, you could enjoy a glass of wine and a spectacular 360-degree view.
Boasting 6 beds, 4 full and 2 half baths, the details are stunning - 15-foot ceilings, heart pine floors, 12 fireplaces, original windows, and plaster moldings. The land has both cleared and wooded acreage, room for poultry and pigs, hives and horses, vegetables, and vineyards. Whether you are a dreamer or a doer, there is no urban density here, just lots of clean air and abundant potential to disconnect, live off the land, savor sublime sunsets, and embrace a serene and quiet lifestyle.
Glen Roy is truly one of the most beautiful antebellum homes available today.
