An Historic 760-Acre Virginia Farmstead Hits the Market
Built in 1859, this Greek Revival manor is the heart of the 760-acre Horseshoe Farm, a former plantation named for its U-shape, created by the bordering Rapidan and Robinson rivers. The six-bedroom mansion retains original moldings inspired by the Parthenon as well as hand-painted murals. Its signature hanging staircase was added in the 1930s by Edward Stettinius Jr., who served as secretary of state under Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman. An array of vineyards, stables, and ponds complement the formal gardens, which were sourced from Louisiana in the 1850s. Price: $7 million.
