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 installed during the Lambert~s time. Designed by Harrie Lindeberg, this is the third and final staircase which is 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 intact. The glorious limestone Manor house commands sweeping views of the Shenandoah mountains. Flanked by two dependency stone buildings, one the original school house for the property, and the other served as the kitchen. Now, both are charming guest houses. The carriage house was converted into a suite of rooms with a relaxation room, kitchen area, 11 bedrooms and 12 full bathrooms. There are 4 stone cabins in impeccable condition, used as single 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 is 26,000 square feet on 3 levels, with additional finished office space in the former stables. All of the original buildings were built in the 1797 timeframe. Three more early wooden outbuildings also remain intact. Carter Hall is on the National Register of Historic Places. Clarke County zoning allows 3 more building sites on the property. Current zoning is agricultural/residential with a special exception permit for the current owner~s use. A truly unique and historic opportunity.
