    Welcome to Westerham Farm

    Westerham, a mid-eighteenth century Federal style dwelling, is proudly positioned overlooking 55 +/- pastoral acres in western Hanover County. Originally constructed in 1734 with 22″ thick brick walls laid in Flemish bond, many of the frames, sills and sashes of the windows, as well as the glass, wide pine floors, and doors with handmade H-L hinges are still present. The plastering, though repaired in places, is native to the home and is in remarkable condition. An original mantelpiece in the formal living room measure 6 ½ feet in height and the dining room is adorned with a somewhat shorter reproduction. Exposed brick and hand-hewed beams are noteworthy features in the English Basement. On the exterior, twin chimneys flank the house from the basement to the attic level.

      A large addition was built onto the existing structure in the late 1990s, adding slightly more than 1400 square feet of living space. This addition was constructed to maintain the ambiance and feel of the original house matching as much as possible the floors and high ceilings.

      Landscaped gardens surround the home and are purported to be the one of the finest private plantings of English and American boxwoods in Virginia.
