Set on 28+ picturesque acres, Waverly Mansion is a historic landmark and a superb equestrian facility MINUTES TO DC & ANNAPOLIS. Built in 1855 by the prosperous tobacco grower, John W. Burroughs, this elegant Italianate Victorian, a rare remaining example of period Big-House two-staircase design, is richly appointed with high ceilings, elaborate moldings and medallions, classic marble mantels, original wood paneling and floors, and more. A grand entry hall with a magnificent 3-storey flying staircase opens to dual formal parlors, a formal dining room, and a gourmet kitchen. The bedrooms are unusually spacious , including a luxurious master-suite with spa-bathroom, a walk-in closet, and utility room. With rolling hills, pastoral vistas, and every amenity for the horse enthusiast, this private horse training facility is first class and Waverly Mansion is a home of rare and beautiful distinction.
The equestrian facility and grounds include 2 barn/stables – (1) with 12 stalls, 2 of which also serve as run-ins, plus a roomy indoor washing area, an owner’s tack room, a boarders tack room, a tenant/barn manager apartment – (2) a renovated historic (1900’s) tobacco barn, with a new roof and a 2-BR, 1.5 bath (Stable Manager’s apartment) plus 16 stalls and 14 tack rooms – also included are a small animal barn, the original smoke house and summer kitchen mirroring the architecture of the house. The numerous paddocks have board fencing and run-ins, including 2 – 5 acre paddocks that are potentially buildable lots. There are 2 riding arenas, including a dressage arena with professional footing and drainage to USDF specs. On the south side of the property is a 5 acre buildable lot (wooded).
Located in the protected Rural Tier, Waverly stands adjacent to Patuxent River Park, comprising 6,000 wooded acres and miles of glorious horse-riding trails. A spectacular historic home and excellent horse boarding/training facility, in a privileged location for both city life and equestrian pursuits, Waverly cannot easily be matched in the DC area.
