Upperville, Virginia Llangollen Estate

BEDROOMS: 9 | BATH: 8.3 | SF: 12,500 SF | ACRES: 1105

PRICE: $27,500,000


he eleven hundred acre Llangollen estate in Upperville Virginia exudes history in a manner which few other properties can do. The storyline can be traced from its late 18th century beginnings as a grant from the King of England through the building of its patent house, which today is a beautifully restored functioning section of the larger home which was gradually enlarged over the centuries. Llangollen became an important equestrian estate during the early 1900’s, when it bred successful racehorses, hosted steeplechases and saw the introduction of polo which continues today at the highest level.

14 |


The visitor’s book at Llangollen is a veritable Who’s Who of high society and political guests. The house, which includes some 12,500 square feet, saw good times and bad, in parallel with societal changes in Virginia and the United States. However, a series of passionate owners have stewarded Llangollen back to beyond even its original glory. The investment of not simply money, but energy and time has resulted in a two hundred year old manor house presenting in impeccable condition, with craftsmanship and design methods of old having been strictly adhered to. From its unique horseshoe barn, to the miles of perfect dry stacked stone walls, the three regulation polo fields and splendid arena, and unobscured vistas which are the envy of many a property, Llangollen is a special place, the likes of which are rarely seen. To be able to acquire over a thousand acres of pristine land with a home on the National Register of Historic Places, just 50 miles from Washington DC, is a rarity indeed, and an opportunity which may never again arise. ■
