Property Description

Sited in the bucolic Virginia countryside sits a home perched on 229 acres with a history as rich as the nation itself. The Shelburne Glebe House was built in approximately 1773 and has been witness to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Various updates through the years have allowed this historical treasure to adapt to the times, all while preserving the historical core of the home. From the hand sawn and craved beams that sit on the stone foundation to the wide floor planks, the character of this home seeps from every corner. Built by the order of the Anglican Church for George Washington’s pastor, this was one of the first glebe houses in the United States. In the present day the home features four bedrooms, one of which is an ensuite on the main level, a finished attic, stately dining and living rooms and center hall foyer. The guest house features two levels of living with two bedrooms and one bathroom and is perfectly positioned to enjoy a view of the lake. The six-stall barn with hayloft is move-in ready for your horses. Preserving the majestic nature of the property, the home and property are in various preservation easements including an easement held by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and Loudoun County, inclusion in both the National and Virginia Historic Register of Places. Additionally, the estate is the Goose Creek Historic District. The land is in land use and the seller is not responsible for roll-back taxes. The new owner will continue to be a steward of history whilst enjoying the serenity and beauty found within this unique parcel of land.
