I have been remiss in gathering my latest Real Estate Roundup, so instead today I am sharing a magnificent 19th century Virginia estate. Lisburne is a stunningly beautiful 70+ acre historic, waterfront and equestrian estate in Lower Gloucester County, Virginia. It is located just 11 minutes from Historic Yorktown and 30 minutes or less to the heart of Colonial Williamsburg.
The circa 1810 2 ½ story Georgian Manor has been restored with elegant and spacious architect designed additions (1964). Glorious gardens feature mature boxwood, towering magnolia and azalea gardens in a park-like setting. Interior features include original heart pine floors, exquisite mantels and moldings, large country kitchen, raised paneling, elegantly appointed living spaces, high ceilings, and more. The Manor house is accessed through a stately gated entrance that sets the tone for the remainder of the property. Entrance drive is flanked by stables, formal cutting, a two-story 3-bay garage, tennis courts, pool, pool house, and what remains of the original ice-house (believed to predate the manor house). Previously known as Pleasant Point, it is one of the most enchanting and lovely historic, waterfront and equestrian estate properties remaining in the Chesapeake Bay Region of Virginia!
A little slice of heaven! This iconic home has been featured multiple times on the renowned Historic Garden Week in Virginia Tour. The interiors could use a refresh, but this home has great bones!
