Property Description

The Ben Dover mansion, circa 1853, is uniquely situated to enjoy views of some of the finest countryside in Virginia yet is close to Richmond, its nationally ranked schools, and many restaurants and conveniences. The mansion features original masonry with a slate roof, 12' and 14' ceilings, exquisite moldings, floor to ceiling windows, heart of pine floors, ten marble fireplaces, spacious well-proportioned rooms, and expansive porches that provide indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces.

Separate from the main mansion is a Brunswick bowling alley, a detached two-bedroom and one and one-half bath pool house with a kitchen and family room with fireplace, and a private salt water pool and nearby spring-fed creek. This historic property was the site of Charles Lindbergh's landing, and is listed on the Virginia and National Registers of Historic Places qualifying the property for historic rehabilitation tax credits both state and federal but with no historic or conservation easements so this would be a perfect bed and breakfast. For those imagining a country idyll with all of the conveniences of the Richmond metropolitan life, the property has few equals.
