From the Zillow listing:


With 3 acres in the city of Richmond, Windemere is a spectacular and dramatic property while simultaneously being one of warmth and charm. Originally built as a hunting lodge, this 4-story English Estate sits back from Cary Street Road with its green lawns, circular driveway and Charles Gillette formal garden. This 10,000+ square foot home offers the most prepossessing entrance hall with its beamed ceiling, grand staircase, and original oak paneling, now painted a welcoming soft white. The delightful “hidden” guest bath off the foyer is a joy to see. Arched doorways lead to the light-filled living areas and dining room. The sun room with continuous 12-paned windows overlooks the back-terrace and lawn. The kitchen has custom-designed cabinetry, granite counter tops, and a double sided fireplace.  The guest apartment with its own staircase has a living area, kitchenette, bedroom and adjoining full bath.  The lower level includes a recreation room or media room, full bath, sauna, laundry area, wine cellar and access to the climate controlled 4 car garage (each bay is 2 cars deep).  This unique property is completed with an elevator, pool and amazing outdoor patio space.
