Property Description

Built in 1851 Mount Stirling Farm has stood the test of time. This 2 1/2 story Greek Revival mansion is quite significant in the history of Virginia. Just east of Richmond, the home is notable for its architectural details such as the Greek Ionic portico and stepped gable parapets. On the grounds, the original kitchen building still stands. The fine points of the interior include heart pine floors, plaster moulding, ceiling medallions, built in cabinets, black walnut stair balustrade and solid four panel doors. The first floor, traditionally used for entertaining, is welcoming with a center foyer/hall flanked with the parlor, library, dining room and primary bedroom. There are four bedrooms on the second level of this home. Enter the English basement through the brick breezeway. The kitchen, pantry, family room, utility room and additional bedroom make this living space an easy area for one floor living, if needed. Situated on approximately 20 acres, there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy peace and quiet yet convenient to I64.
