25 acres in Virginia. The Manor House at Church Farm. Circa 1790. $415,000

April 14, 2021

Beautiful hand carved mantles in this house! The Manor House at Church Farm was built in 1790. It is located on 25.52 acres in Saint Stephens Church, Virginia. While I love the house and some of the original features inside, that porch needs an overhaul. It doesn’t feel proportional and the upper porch seems too high. That would be the first thing I would do. This home features original hardwood floors, beautiful mantles, chair rails, and high ceilings. The property has a small in-ground pool, wisteria covered arbor, and an english basement. There are several barns on the property. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,479 square feet. $415,000

From the Zillow listing:


The Manor House at Church Farm was constructed about 1790 and is beautifully set back from Newtown Road. Surrounded by fields in cultivation it is an oasis, surrounded by various species of Magnolias, Evergreens and other rare specimen plantings. It feels so remote but is an easy drive to Richmond, Mechanicsville, Fredericksburg and Williamsburg. Original heart pine floors which have never been refinished are remarkable and such a rare find! They are a treasure, along with the massive heart pine front door with original glass transom, mantels, high ceilings and so much more. There is an inground fiberglass pool, outdoor wisteria covered pergola, various out-buildings, barns and more. The property is also partially fenced. Horses and other livestock are welcomed. 3 or more bedrooms, conventional septic, well and a FABULOUS finished English Basement with interior and walk-out access. A must see that is priced to sell on 25.52 acres.
