Comely Riverside Plantation Home in Virginia Asks $4.75M

Spencer Peterson

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:
