On the Market: Comely Riverside Plantation Home in Virginia Asks $4.75M

Built in 1853, Gloucester, Va.’s Glen Roy Plantation is listed as the “the ultimate Virginia river country home,” and naturally, one doesn’t vie for that lofty status without including a handful of historic structures in the deal. Aside from the nine-bedroom, twelve-fireplace Greek Revival—a “classic four-over-four Georgian plan” that still has its “over-sized windows and doors with Egypto-Greco surrounds” intact, despite a few lively updates—this one includes a two-bedroom carriage house, a doctor’s office that was converted into “a delightful library,” as well as a grain barn, frame stable, sheep shed and garden shed. So, quite a bit of space to sprawl out in, even for $4.75M. The inside of the 5,800-square-foot main house, painted in pleasant pinks, yellows, and blues, starts out with a “3-section center hall and a central staircase that winds three floors up to a sky-lit cupola with widow’s walk” and only gets better from there. Give it a look below:
