Historic Millwood Estate, Circa 1750! On 79 acres in Virginia. $1,450,000

April 24, 2019

I love this one! The historic Millwood Estate was built in 1750! It is located on 79 acres in Powhatan, Virginia. In the early 1800’s it was home to Dr. David McCaw. Apparently he was a well known and loved doctor in the area. Originally it was built as two separate structures. Makes me wonder if one was his office? Today they are joined together. In the basement you can see the oak sills and the hand hewn joists. The estate has two guest cottages, a horse stable, a detached two car garage and an in-ground pool. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 4,040 square feet. $1,450,000

From the Zillow listing:


Welcome to Millwood! Standing majestically on a hilltop in the rolling country of Powhatan County, this 79 are estate on the historic Huguenot Trail is your countryside escape. Originally constructed as two separate buildings, each with a basement of stone and brick, later the buildings were connected by addition of a one story room and a balancing wing was added at the other end of the house. Today it is still a sturdy frame structure supported by massive oak sills and hand-hewn joists, some of which can be seen in the ceiling of the basement in the north wing.

In the early 1800’s the home was the residence of the local physician, the renowned Dr. David mcCaw. Complete with 2 guest cottages, a horse stable, fenced pasture, a separate 2 care garage and in ground pool adjacent to the gazebo, it is truly a one of a kind paradise. The grounds are stunning with brick garden paths, towering old Oak tree, abundance of deer, turkey and other wildlife. The home has had numerous updates and renovations through the years to lovingly combine historic charm with modern day luxuries. Original heart pine flooring, 11 ft ceilings, 7 fireplaces and located only a few miles to major highway.
