Property Description

Set on nearly 300 acres of lush Virginia countryside with sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Elway Hall captures the timeless elegance and fairy-tale romance of a bygone era. This extraordinary, Edwardian mansion with more than 15,000 square feet was built in 1907 by prominent industrialist and railroad tycoon, Johnson Newlon Camden for his daughter Annie and son-in-law, General Baldwin Day Spilman. Her ethereal image is reflected in three-story custom Tiffany windows over the grand carved oak staircase. The estate has been home for the past two decades to internationally acclaimed interior designer and author, Barry Dixon and award-winning Washington, DC television news personality, Will Thomas. Dixon created a residence that brings the past into the present by incorporating the most modern conveniences while maintaining the timeless elegance of the Edwardian period. Renowned architect H.H. Richardson used a colorful mix of coursed-stone blocks which add pattern to the massive masonry walls accented with red tile shingles in the gables and a terra-cotta tile roof. The interiors feature approximately 13-foot ceilings, a stunning Dixon designed kitchen and eat-in butler’s pantry with a built-in banquet, walk-in larder, cobbled limestone floors, 9 dedicated second floor bedrooms, 5 additional bedrooms on the third level used as offices, 7 bathrooms, 17 working wood burning fireplaces, original stone walled lower kitchen and gated wine cellar are among the long list of incredible and timeless amenities. Additional features include a custom swimming pool which blends perfectly with the landscape surrounded by stone wall ledges, a classic restored brick barn and silo with copper roof including an extraordinary second floor entertaining space. An octagonal hen house girds the entrance to vegetable and cutting gardens filled with Dahlias and Hollyhocks where a herd of Angora goats and Dolly the lama keep watch nearby. Designed for entertaining, Elway Hall is one of the most celebrated estates in the Washington region and perhaps the state of Virginia. Less than one hour to the heart of the nation’s capital, 45 minutes to Dulles International Airport and 10 minutes from Warrenton Air Park often used for private jet aviation. Strength, beauty, inspiration. Elway Hall, Warrenton, Virginia.
