Featuring the main 16 room brick Georgian, the property also includes a 7 room updated coach house, a gentleman's outbuilding and an additional 3 car garage (for a total of 7 spaces). An additional adjacent 5 acres (included in this offering) provides incredible views, privacy and a true country feeling.

Also on this level is a living room with fireplace, cherry paneled library with fireplace, wine room and bar area, dining room, country kitchen with fireplace and walk-in pantry, utility room, storage room, two bedrooms with baths and a formal powder room. The first floor primary bedroom wing is a flexible arrangement of rooms; main bedroom with fireplace, two substantial dressing rooms, walk-in closet plus additional walls of closets, an office and 1.5 baths. The second floor has 9 foot ceilings and is reached from the foyer's two story elegant floating staircase, and features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, dressing room and large walk-in closet, which would make an excellent second floor laundry area. This classic one owner estate was designed by well-known architect, Walter Frazier. Frazier perfectly sited the home on the hill to take advantage of the vistas and sunsets to the west over open lands. High quality building standards were utilized throughout, including Ludowici tile roof, concrete construction, stone and hardwood flooring, Phase 3 electric, and 16 zones HVAC. With flexibility in mind, there is a charming, updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath guest house; an additional outbuilding used as a gentleman's retreat providing additional garage space, workroom, kennels, attic storage and 2 rooms of vaulted ceilinged living space with 1/2 bath and kitchenette; and a separate 3 car garage. The eastern section of the 9 acres houses all of the structures and the grounds allow for a pool to be perfectly placed to receive the sun. The patios have stunning views of the 5 acres of dedicated conservation land (managed by LFOLA) and enjoy colorful sunsets. Immerse yourself in nature, but be only minutes from vibrant Market Square, this one-of-a-kind location and estate is waiting for the next generation to enjoy. (Original blueprints and landscape plans are available for previewing. See square footage comments for sizes of outbuildings, sold in trust and as is.)
