Lewellyn’s ½ mile drive is graced with majestic trees, fenced fields, and beautiful gardens, which lead up to and surround the stately manor house. Beautifully sited on a knoll, the home enjoys magnificent Blue Ridge Mountain views.The spectacular 260 acres, with 5 remaining DURs, offers easement as well as family compound potential.
The grandeur of the home embodies the understated elegance and charm essential in creating such a welcoming residence. The original section features a wide center hallway and gracious hand carved stairwell flanked by two over two rooms, with high ceilings, deep set windows, stone fireplaces, hand carved mantles, and pine floors. Today, one enters the home from the west and the wonderful 3 bay covered porch, perfect for outdoor living and dining. After several additions, today’s home is approximately 9,000 sq. ft. As written in the book, In The Shadow of the Blue Ridge, “The north wing of the home was added in the 1930’s to provide a self-sufficient wing.” Today, this wing offers a sitting room, as well as a second kitchen, for extended family and guest, and is currently available through Airbnb. In 1976 a south wing was added, which added symmetry to the home. Today, the original south wing houses the spacious chef’s kitchen, featuring soapstone countertops, a 6-burner gas stove, and subzero refrigerator and freezer, and is open to the charming gathering room with stone fireplace. In 2008 an additional south wing was added creating a dramatic juxtaposition of the 19th and 21st century. Through a gallery, featuring large windows, an elevator and stairway to the lower level, one enters the stunning main level primary bedroom retreat with spa bath, dressing rooms and porticoed porch.
The upper levels, accessed from 3 stairwells, provides 6 bedrooms, including the previous master suite and dressing room, 5 ½ baths, a sitting room and office with built in cabinetry and shelving.
The lower level includes a 2 car garage with work space, mud room, two ½ baths, laundry room, exercise room with sauna, wine storage, mechanical room and the previous 2 car garage, currently a mechanical and storage room
The serenity of this estate is beautifully enjoyed from one of the many porches and the stunning sunroom designed to enjoy the spectacular perennial gardens, featured in several Virginia Garden Week tours. From porches facing east one enjoys magnificent sunrises over the Blue Ridge Mountains. The covered porches on the west enjoy shade from the stately trees and offer a beautiful setting for al fresco dining.
