Virgin Virginia

Unrestored Virginia estate owned by the same family since 1740 for sale for the first time ever

 

A 410.18-acre estate in Virginia that has been owned by the same family since 1740 has gone on sale for £1.53 million ($1.95 million, €1.75 million or درهم7.16 million).

 

Completely unaltered and on the National Register of Historic Places, Spring Grove in Milford, Caroline County is listed as a “fine example of Italianate architecture”. It centres around a residence that dates to 1856, extends to around 12,000 square foot and includes 26 rooms. There are said to be 8 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms and though the building is currently “not livable, with the exception of a small basement apartment”, selling agents Frank Hardy Sotheby’s International Realty describe it as “an architectural treasure ideal for a buyer seeking an authentic restoration project”.

 

Owned by the DeJarnette family, Huguenot emigrants to Virginia, the current house is the third property to stand on the site. It was built by Daniel Coleman DeJarnette (1822 – 1881), a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, and is now being sold by his descendants.

  1. Let’s hope it’s bought by someone with a sense of history. Huge potential as well as a need for another couple of loos.
    Have you noticed there are still lots of books in the library? Bizarre.

  2. What a s****er of a construct!!!!!!!!!!! Knock the f***ing dump down!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrecking ball required!!!!!!!!!!! COmpletely overpriced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. As a property professional, I would suggest this is a great buy. It will cost significant sums to upgrade but it will be worth it. It is, I see, not too far from Washington to make a weekend retreat for a politician or publisher and it would truly be a “wow” of a place to impress friends when entertaining them there.

  4. Does anybody happen to know who the architect was. I have not been able to find anywhere. Perhaps Samuel Sloan? Thanks.

    • According to The National Register pf Hostoric Places, there is no record of the name of the architectect.

      “The present house, at least the third on the site, was built in 1856 by Daniel Coleman DeJarnette (1822-1881), a scholar and a member of the Virginia House of Delegates (1853-1858) and of the U.S. House of Representatives. DeJarnette also represented Virginia in the Confederate Congress. Unfortunately, no indication of an architect ! I or builder of the house survives among DeJarnette’s effects, although the quality of its design, indicates that the house probably had an architect. “

    • Good morning Robert Lord Zimlich. I am Katherine Carmichael Coleman of theDaniel Coleman Dejarnette family. My father, Walter deJarnette Coleman, told stories regarding our family homes throughout his life. He visited Spring Grove and Hampton Manor during his lifetime and shared stories with us, his 4 daughters. I have the Coleman Family Journal and Spring Grove is sprinkled throughout the pages. I shall try to find out what I can regarding the building of Spring Grove and will let you know what I find if you still have interest. Sincerely, Katherine

      • Katherine,
        Do you know if there is a cemetery on the Spring Grove property? I am trying to find out where Daniel’s mother Huldah and her sister Jane Coleman are buried. I am a descendant of Francis Marion DeJarnette, my grandmother’s grandfather. Please check your sources and let me know. I would be appreciative of your help in this matter where ever it may lead me.
        Jo Marie

        • I will be happy to investigate and look into the family journals. I will get back with you as soon as I have some information!

      • I was so lucky to visit Spring Grove and Hampton Manor. The homes that surround Hampton Manor are still occupied by the descendants of the slaves that once worked the property. At least that is what I was told.

  5. According to The National Register of Historic Places, there is no record of the name of the architect.

    “The present house, at least the third on the site, was built in 1856 by Daniel Coleman DeJarnette (1822-1881), a scholar and a member of the Virginia House of Delegates (1853-1858) and of the U.S. House of Representatives.

  6. This lovely home is one of our family homes.my father, Walter DeJarnette Coleman, now deceased, visited here when I was a small child. I have the family Journal and will look to see if I can find any information regarding the Architect, I seem to remember family involvement.

  7. I find this so interesting, my son is very interested in genealogy! Can anyone visit the plantation?
