About This 1856 Abandoned Mansion on 410 acres In Virginia

Spring Grove, c.1856 – Elegant, historic and unaltered, Spring Grove is an Italianate villa on a private 410 acre estate on land that has been in the same family since 1740. This unrestored gem is 2 stories above ground totaling 8,000 sq.ft., with a full English-basement of approximately 4,000 sq. ft. There are 26 rooms and 13′ ceilings on the first floor. The house is in a timeless, original state of preservation, very rarely seen on the marketplace today, and offers a very unique and specialopportunity to restore one of the finest examples of Italianate architecture in Virginia.

Original faux painting techniques (wood graining and marbleizing), popular during the Victorian era, remain intact, further authenticating the residence. Details include a majestic front entrance, a grand main floating staircase, multiple fireplaces, and wonderful pocket doors. The restored cupola provides commanding views of the estate and surrounding countryside.

This house is an architectural treasure ideal for a buyer seeking an authentic restoration project. Rarely do you see a property as untouched and regal as this that remains intact and speaks so inherently of a bygone era. The owners have undertaken exterior renovations by a highly skilled team of restoration experts. At present the manor is not livable, with the exception of a small basement apartment. Spring Grove may also be purchased with 123 acres for $1,250,000.

  1. Wonderful to see.
    Check out Castle Kilbride,Baden Ontario Canada.Very much the same house,but now a museum.I would very much like to see what becomes of Spruce Grove.

  2. Wow! It seems to be in remarkably good condition considering it’s been sitting empty for so long. I’m not sure I would paint a couple of the rooms, leaving them as is, but with a good cleaning. This is amazing.

  3. I am anxious to see what becomes of Spring Grove. My Great Great Grandmother was a DeJarnette….

    • I agree, would love to see them fix up this OR maybe since Nicole Curtis of Rehab Addict, would be more for that house cause she ALWAYS fixes up old old houses and makes sure NOTHING is thrown out

  4. amazing. I am so jealous of the person that purchased this house and all the acreage. If i could have purchased it I definitely would have! Such a neat place.

Let me know what you think about this old house!
