Property Description

c.1840 Lovell enjoys the romance of timeless beauty and the tradition of the Virginia hunt country. With the owner’s permission, horses and riders gallop through the landscape. Lovell enjoys total privacy with a mile-long horseshoe driveway.

Located in the Virginia Piedmont region, where you find a commitment to land preservation, Lovell c.1840, a Georgian Manor house, on 165 +/- acres with three ponds, spring, and rolling farmland bordered by the Robinson River and surrounded on three sides by properties under conservation easement has a stately presence. The property has 4 tenant houses, 3 ponds, barns, and outbuildings.

The house built from brick burned on the farm and laid in Flemish Bond. The hipped roof is the original slate, and shutters frame the windows. The four chimneys once heated the two rooms on either side of the center hall and the four bedrooms upstairs. The interior walls are solid brick coated in plaster, and the floors are original heart pine. Seen throughout the house are original doors and brass locks. The staircase retains decorative scrolls and paneling. Each room on the first floor has a ten-foot ceiling and a mantled fireplace, tiered and
decorated with a curved apron. The second floor has nine-foot ceilings, four bedrooms, and a full bathroom. There are 3 additional bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry room, and original dining room in the walk-out English basement, making the original core of Lovell a 12-room house.

A covered walkway once led from the outside kitchen, which was in a separate brick building, laid in Flemish Bond, to the basement former dining room of the main house.

The current owners designed and built a rear wing to the house over three years, 1918 - 1921. It includes a first floor
gathering space, a second-floor primary bedroom suite and office, and a terrace level with a garage, laundry room, and
wood storage. The great room was designed as a first-floor gathering space featuring a gourmet kitchen, random-width
pine floors from New Hampshire installed with exposed square cut nails, a custom cooking fireplace, a dining area, and a comfortable sitting area. Windows are true divide Marvin double-hung windows providing expansive views of the farm, garden, and mountains. The porch is a 12x18 custom post and beam built with a brick hearth, cedar floor, and views of the farm. The gathering room enjoys an expansive garden view with views of the farm and hayfields in the background.
