Property Description

Rare offering Historic "Carter Hall". This classic Southern plantation estate has been home and host to some of America's greatest citizens. Built by Lt. Colonel Nathaniel Burwell circa 1797. Owned and renovated in the 1930's by the Lambert Family. The "Flying Staircase" was built during the Lambert's time and was designed by Architect, Harrie Lindeberg. This is the third and final staircase which has become the stunning centerpiece in the Great Hall. Carter Hall was the childhood home of Rachel "Bunny" Lambert Mellon. Bunny Mellon's touches are evident throughout Carter Hall and the grounds where her greenhouse remains. Carter Hall has over 14,000 square feet of finished space on 3 levels including and commercial kitchen on the lower level. Antique touches remain throughout the manor home including a working dumb waiter in the main level service kitchen, built-in secret cupboards, brass door knobs and locks with original skeleton keys, bubble glass windows and much more. Step through the front door and step back in time. The glorious limestone manor house commands sweeping views of the Shenandoah mountains with protected view sheds. Flanked by two dependency stone buildings, one the original school house for the property, and the other served as the kitchen house. Now, both are charming guest houses. The carriage house was converted into a suite of rooms with a relaxation room and kitchenette along with 11 bedrooms and 12 full bathrooms. There are 4 stone cabins in impeccable condition, used as guest cottages. You will find a total of 14 buildings on 87 acres outlined with stacked stone walls, century old trees and timeless gardens and landscapes. Stunning architecture has been well preserved and maintained. The property, currently used for meetings and conferences, can accommodate up to 42 overnight guests. The administration building was added in the 1980's. It has 26,000 square feet on 3 levels. There is additional finished office space in the former stables. All of the historic buildings were built circa 1797. Three more small wooden outbuildings were added behind Carter Hall in the 1930's. Carter Hall is on the National Register of Historic Places. Clarke County zoning allows 3 more building sites (DUR's) on the property. Current zoning is agricultural/residential with a special exception permit for the current use. A truly unique and historic opportunity.
