Description

The Ellen Glasgow House was built in 1841 and meticulously preserved through the generations. This estate is perhaps the best example of true preservation in Central Virginia. Step past the central portico and the stately Doric columns back in time within this 19th century masterpiece. The Egyptian-style foyer leaves you breathless. The original gas-lit chandelier is reflected in a stunning Madison mirror, drawing your eye up towards classic Greek Revival touches: soaring 14-foot ceilings with floral medallions unique in each room, acanthus leaf pilasters, and cove pediments accenting the windows and doors. Discover the century-old wallpaper that Pulitzer Prize winning author Ellen Glasgow installed in her writing room, where all but one of her iconic books were penned. Thirteen fireplaces, each with their own ornate mantle, offer warmth, comfort, and intrigue. Beyond the generous covered rear porch is a lush and green courtyard, a true rarity in the heart of downtown. Modern zoning allows a variety of live-work or strictly commercial options and the adjacent parking lot is available for sale. This once in a lifetime opportunity is inviting you to create the next page of history!
