About This Old House

Lisburne, circa 1810 is a breathtaking waterfront estate, encompassing 70+ acres with significant frontage on Vaughan’s creek – a tributary of the Severn River in Lower Gloucester County.  The Circa 1810 2 ½ story Georgian Colonial Manor House is set above a handsome English Basement.  Previously known as Pleasant Point, this distinguished home saw little change from 1810 – 1964, when it was fully restored and beautifully renovated.   The current owners also enlarged the manor house with elegant and gracious architect designed additions.  Interior features include: original heart pine floors, grand center hall and original staircases, exquisite mantels, architecturally stunning hand carved moldings, a large country kitchen, walnut flooring, working fireplaces, raised paneling, elegantly appointed living spaces, high-ceilings, period locks, doors and more.  The Manor House is surrounded by glorious formal gardens in a park-like setting, which includes towering magnolias, mature boxwood, old garden roses, heirloom perennials and a staggering number of mature azaleas (under planted with vinca minor and lily of the valley), which meander through the woodland at the water’s edge.  A majestic gated entrance also sets the tone for the remainder of this exquisite historic, waterfront and equestrian estate property.  The entrance drive is flanked by: stables and formal cutting gardens to the left and a two-story 3-bay carriage house/garage, tennis courts, pool, pool house, and what remains of the original ice-house (believed to predate the manor house) to the right. Lisburne is one of the great crown jewel estate properties remaining in the Chesapeake Bay Region of Virginia.  This is a serenely captivating property with numerous water features, secret gardens, fenced pastures, paddocks and meandering garden paths, as well as riding and walking trails.  This one of a kind historic treasure has been featured numerous times on the renowned and prestigious Historic Garden Week in Virginia Tour and in legendary magazines, such as: Colonial Homes and Southern Accents.
