Mount Pleasant / Hague, Virginia


This incredible 1886-built, seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom manse has everything you could ask for in a Victorian. Not only does it boast exquisite, original architectural details (more on that later), the 9,723-square footer also offers amenities for modern living without compromising on its historicity.

In fact, the property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register, and is also under easement to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. No wonder: An expansive wraparound porch with gorgeous woodwork sets the mood for the house, and once inside, you’ll be awed by its elegant moulding, intricate staircase, nine fireplaces, all the windows topped with stained glass, the soaring, high-ceilinged bedrooms, multiple sitting and reception rooms — and, truly, so much more. Though the beautiful antique furnishings and décor will most likely go with the seller, the new owner will want to take notes, because, well, it’s all stunning.

Outside — on the 49-acre property — you’ll find a period carriage house, new barn, and a run-in shed on a separate pasture. And as far as present-day conveniences go, a large chef’s kitchen, elevator, emergency generator, and two-car garage make life a little easier. Located at 317 Coles Point Road in Hague, Virginia, it’s asking $2,500,000 — via Curbed
