I’m not sure where today went, but I couldn’t let it slip away without sharing a home I found recently online. This home is an historic estate in Virginia surrounded by the most amazing gardens. There’s also a smoke house, stables, an ice house, and pool and tennis pavilions.
I love a beautiful driveway leading to an equally beautiful home. What a grand entrance!
The home is a Georgian Colonial built in 1810.
Love all the wonderful wood paneling…
This was all they showed of the library. I would love to have seen more. The walls glows in the lamplight…so pretty!
I love a four poster bed especially when it has a canopy.
Can you believe the size of the bedrooms?! What a light-filled space. Such a gorgeous bed! I love the corner chairs…do you see them? So many beautiful antiques in this home. I’ve heard/read different reasons for the design of the corner chair. I’ve read it helped men sit when they were wearing a sword and I’ve heard it helped women when sitting because it allowed space for their full gowns.
There are beautiful gardens surrounding the home.
Breathtaking! Imagine a picnic in this spot!
You get a better view of how the home is positioned near the water and surrounded by gardens in this painting. It has a number of outbuildings as you can see. You can see more of the home here: Waterfront Estate
