Public Remarks: Built in 1808 as a two-over-two with an English basement, Retreat has grown into a gracious living space with additions between the original construction and 1867. It is a wonderful example of country living at its finest. A lane lined with dogwoods, red maples, plane trees and red cedars leads to a Georgian house which sits on 8 acres of park surrounded by 70 acres of woods and crop fields. The current owners renovated, upgraded or replaced all major systems over the years to assure comfortable living and meticulously maintain the estate enabling it to display the deserving historic elegance of a true Tidewater Virginia manse. To continue and protect the beauty of this property, the owners have placed it under a Conservation Easement. The estate house has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, spacious formal and informal rooms with original random width pine floors throughout, original front doors and all original mantels. The kitchen was updated in 2013 with Jenn-Air appliances, granite counter tops and cork flooring, keeping the solid pine cabinets. There are 5 working fireplaces. Additional dependencies include a smoke house, guest cottage, 4-stall barn, pool and 2 detached garages. The layout of the house makes for perfect entertaining - easy flow between rooms and a large screened porch overlooking the peaceful park and fields. The location of Retreat is ideal – just 45 minutes to Richmond and 45 minutes to Fredericksburg.
