Virgin Virginia

Unrestored Virginia estate owned by the same family since 1740 for sale for the first time ever

 

A 410.18-acre estate in Virginia that has been owned by the same family since 1740 has gone on sale for £1.53 million ($1.95 million, €1.75 million or درهم7.16 million).

 

Completely unaltered and on the National Register of Historic Places, Spring Grove in Milford, Caroline County is listed as a “fine example of Italianate architecture”. It centres around a residence that dates to 1856, extends to around 12,000 square foot and includes 26 rooms. There are said to be 8 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms and though the building is currently “not livable, with the exception of a small basement apartment”, selling agents Frank Hardy Sotheby’s International Realty describe it as “an architectural treasure ideal for a buyer seeking an authentic restoration project”.

 

Owned by the DeJarnette family, Huguenot emigrants to Virginia, the current house is the third property to stand on the site. It was built by Daniel Coleman DeJarnette (1822 – 1881), a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, and is now being sold by his descendants.

  1. Let’s hope it’s bought by someone with a sense of history. Huge potential as well as a need for another couple of loos.
    Have you noticed there are still lots of books in the library? Bizarre.

  2. What a s****er of a construct!!!!!!!!!!! Knock the f***ing dump down!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrecking ball required!!!!!!!!!!! COmpletely overpriced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. As a property professional, I would suggest this is a great buy. It will cost significant sums to upgrade but it will be worth it. It is, I see, not too far from Washington to make a weekend retreat for a politician or publisher and it would truly be a “wow” of a place to impress friends when entertaining them there.

  4. Does anybody happen to know who the architect was. I have not been able to find anywhere. Perhaps Samuel Sloan? Thanks.
