Description

Clifton, on the National Register of Historic Places, offers 127 private acres of rolling woodlands and open fields that was once part of the vast holdings of Robert “King” Carter. The original home built Circa 1785 by Carter’s grandson, Landon II, remained in the Carter family until 1843. Purchased by James Armistead Palmer, generations of the Palmer family have lived at Clifton until present day. Clifton retains its original charm of Georgian architecture with center chimney that serves two fireplaces on main level and four fireplaces on second level. Two stairways in the expansive entry hall lead to second floor. The east wing (1810) serves as master bedroom and the west wing (2002) as a library. Two bathrooms & kitchen added 1973 creating a comfortable home. Original moldings remain throughout the home. Three dependencies include cabin, workshop and garden shed. Pole barn was erected in a wooded area of the property, 2009. Clifton lies in Northumberland County with a portion in town of Kilmarnock. Owners are allowed to add a 3000 sf house on the property (approved by VA Dept. of Historic Resources). This property is a historic gem – visit to appreciate all its charm and features. There is a Deed of Easement from Grantors of Clifton to the Grantees, Virginia Board of Historic Resources. Contact listing agent with questions or to get other docs and information. An additional 3000 SF home may be built on Clifton property with approval of the Virginia Board of Historic Resources.
