The origin of this historic property dates back to the early 1600's when the Mattaponi Indian Tribe inhabited the land along the river banks. Relics can still be found to this day. In the mid 1600's the at one time 2000 acre parcel was granted to Major William Lewis. Throughout the years the land played host to Civil War soldiers and some trench's are still evident on the property. It wasn't until 1928 that the now 170 acre riverfront property "Glenwood" was envisioned by George P. Lyon, a famous local Businessman and former member of the Virginia General Assembly. The Georgian style brick home was masterfully crafted by well known Fredericksburg builder "Peck" Heflin. It was known in that era to be one of the most exquisite and luxurious homes in the area. Mr. Lyon spared no expense. This expansive home invites you in with the lovely sweeping curved porch across the front. Covered, enclosed and partially enclosed porches wrap three sides of the home. The Grand foyer draws you in with the warm hardwood floors, wide wood stair case and the formal living and dining rooms that flank the large entry. 10 foot ceilings on the main level and 9 foot ceilings on the upper level create an open and airy feel all through out the home. The kitchen for the time period was well thought out which included a butlers pantry with built in cabinetry and has experienced some modern touches in recent years with top of the line appliances. The upper level living quarters are appointed with 4 generous sized bedrooms. The primary suite was altered with a pass through to another bedroom which the current owners use as a dressing room but can be a wonderful nursery or easily converted back to a private bedroom. Bonus room on upper level leads out to the portico porch and also has access to the stand up attic space. Full, unfinished basement with tons of ample storage or workshop potential. The detached carriage house is adorned with a 2 car garage, screened in back porch, storage space and upper level option for an apartment. This 170 acre estates fronts the Mattaponi River and has timber plus cultivated areas. Among the parcel is a 2700 square foot farm building. Wildlife enthusiasts will be in heaven here with evidence of deer and turkey tracks all around the estate. The property has tons of potential for future expansive and subdivision if someone so chooses. Conveniently located and only 20 minutes to I-95. The current owner is only the 2nd owner of this impressive property and their pride and love shine through every inch.
