Owned by the same family since the 1930's, this is your chance to own part of Virginia's history. There is a Virginia Historic Landmark Easement on two of the three parcels and it includes the accurately restored Queen Anne Cottage and Main House. Built in 1720, but possibly earlier, this may be the oldest frame house west of Tuckahoe Plantation. In 1937 the Norman Styled Main House was constructed and at the time had an unobstructed view up and across The James River. It was designed by noted architect Carl M Lindner and features a stunning Great Hall room as well as appropriate architectural details throughout, including a paneled Library. Title goes back to the Crown when it was deeded to Tarleton Fleming. The house survived both the British and the Union raiders. Previous owners include Virginia Governor John Rutherfoord. The estate earned the name "Rock Castle" from the high, rocky bluff where the home was located. The lowlands along The James River are in crop land and the rest is in pasture or timber. The main house parcel has wonderful brick walls and walks and was once a noted formal garden. The view from the front looking up to the foothills is magic. Love where you live!
