    If someone could kindly loan me $3 million, just until I die I would greatly appreciate it. 🙂

    Nice to see really older home that appears to still have original flooring. Grass cloth is beautiful painted. Looks same as it would on drywall but with a beautiful texture!

    I like it! The 70s addition reminds me of the bedroom in 2001: A Space Odyssey which is to say it is *extremely* cool and compliments the property so nicely. What a dream.

    Not much of a Federal fan, but not liking this would be a federal case.

    Very charming. Unfortunately a lot more charming than I can afford.

    Such lovely light, in addition to all its other charms. Sigh. Would love to see inside the oldest cottage.

    Fabulous house; ….. I think I’d need a golf cart to get around the INSIDE of this place.
    On the bright side – I’d be exhausted by the time I got to the bedroom ! Cricket, anyone?

    This is a beautiful part of Virginia not far south of Charlottesville, with magnificent horse farms, wineries, etc. This size house and property takes a lot of money and energy to manage, but gosh, I’d love to give it a go….! It’s a lovely house and yes, I’d love to see the 18th-century cottage also. And the kitchen?

    I wish I had the money to buy this. Simply breathtaking home.

    This is my dream house! If only I was rich and didn’t live on the other side of the country.

    This is right outside of Charlottesville, beautiful estates everywhere!

    The house, farm and surrounding community are known as Glendower. The manor house was built for Samuel Dyer (1756-1839), an Englishman who came alone to Virginia just before the Revolution. A successful merchant and planter, he eventually owned over 2000 acres with a store and mill.
    Before he built this place, Dyer had expanded a nearby house he called Plain Dealing, a Virginia landmark known for its Georgian woodwork.

    Glendower is an amazing house that survives with much of its original acreage, slaves quarters and smokehouse. I’d like to see photos before the expansion in the 1970’s. One old photo shows that some minor changes were made – the porch was made smaller and the pediment replaced a dormer – not much to complain about.

      I’d like to see pictures of the slave quarters. Honestly, this is the only listing I have ever seen that owns up to being an antebellum plantation with slaves. All other listings are very hush-hush about it’s history.

    Did anyone else notice the bedspread matched the bathroom walls from the next picture?!

    Buy it and then sell off most of the land. No one needs hundreds of acres. Make the money back to pay off the loan. Land probably worth a lot.

    This is my dream house, or it was, years ago. As I’ve gotten older, I see this house and its astonishing beauty, and think, Oh my, too much space! The rooms are too big for me now. When I had small children running around, wow, what a great place to let ’em loose! But now, I want cozy. So, I guess it’s fortunate that I have not won the lottery yet, otherwise I’d probably buy this house because it’s fabulous in every way.

    Zoomey I agree with you in every way. I think sheer size is what’s keeping many of these mansions on the market for so long. As one gets older (and hopefully, wiser) one is more aware of the great, “burden of responsibility” these gorgeous old houses represent.

    Ahh my dream horse farm and old house all in one
