LUXURY – REAL ESTATE
We’re Dying To Fix Up This Virginia Mansion
It’s not everyday that we happen upon a spectacularly beautiful, empty mansion up for grabs, especially one surrounded by private, pastoral countryside as far as the eye can see.
Apparently, an opportunity like this comes along but once every 300 years—Spring Grove, as it’s dubbed, has been in the same family since 1740, and now this 410-acre Virginia estate is ready for a new steward.
The 8-bedroom, 29-room villa measures a whopping 12,000 square feet (if you factor in the English basement) and it is a visual candy store for anyone who enjoys the charm and character of old homes.
The entire estate is for sale for $1.95 million (or $1.25 million with 123 acres). For more information, contact Frank Hardy Sotheby’s International Realty.
