Description/Comments


Lot Size: --
Property Type: Residential
Year Built: 1841
Notes: MASSIVE PRICE REDUCTION! Words fail to describe the true significance of the Ellen Glasgow House. Built in 1841, the property is listed as both a Virginia and National Historic Landmark. “The Square Gray House” of the Pulitzer Prize winning author was the location where she wrote all but one of her novels. Ellen emotively stated “The fibers of my personality are interwoven, I feel, with some indestructible element of the place; and this element is superior to time and chance”. Perhaps the best true preservation of a Central VA home due to its continual use and loving maintenance as is best evidenced by the century old wallpaper installed by Ellen in her writing room still being intact. As equally noteworthy is the home's architectural significance. Mary Wingfield Scott was stirred to write in Houses of Old Richmond that “The house is in the most perfect condition of any of the remaining Greek Revival mansions.” and “The Doric columns of the entrance are considerably heavier than those of the Barret, Clarke or Bransford houses. The Glasgow mansion gives an impression of solid dignity” Having the opportunity and privilege of owning this property is a once in a lifetime opportunity
