Privately nestled in one of Richmond’s most coveted neighborhoods and among one of Virginia’s highest ranking in architectural significance and historical associations, is Fairfield, a grand Georgian plantation house with a special story.
First named Rocky Mills, and built in Hanover County around 1750, it was originally the home of John Syme II, half brother of Patrick Henry. Later reconstructed and renovated in Richmond, the distinctive Flemish bond walls and rusticated block-like stonework frames the façade openings. This is an exceptionally rare 18-century home. 7.77 acres, along the James river, 4 bedrooms, 5.1 bathrooms, 11 fireplaces, an apartment over the 4/5 car garage, and separate guest house/pool house.
