“Edloe Glades”, Circa 1826. Equine manor home on ten acres in Virginia. $475,000

April 30, 2020

Wow. This was fun to look at. That price seems very reasonable for this property! Edloe Glades was built in 1826. The home is located on ten acres in Amherst, Virginia. The interior is like a time capsule, but not an 1826 time capsule. Would love to stroll those boxwood gardens. This equine manor home was hand constructed. This is the first time this home has been on the market in three generations. This home has eight fireplaces and six of those have marble mantels from New Orleans. Four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and 4,576 square feet. $495,000 New price: $475,000
