Description

In 1642, Glen Roy was a 600-acre land grant from English King Charles I. Today, Glen Roy Plantation encompasses 60 acres of pastures, woods & sweeping lawns, extending to shore of the Ware River. Built in 1853 by William Patterson Smith, the classic Greek Revival manor house has a characteristic four-over-four Georgian plan with a three-section center hall and a central staircase that winds three floors up to a cupola with widow’s walk. Grand in scale, this impressive design of 13 rooms with 15' ceilings downstairs, and 14' upstairs, 12 fireplaces. The timeless proportions create an elegant, yet comfortable ambiance. Along the west elevation on the river, the hall, living room and dining room open to a 60' glass conservatory. The plentiful original architectural elements distinguish the design: over-sized windows and doors with Greco-Egypto surrounds, complex moldings, heart pine floors, plaster walls & ceilings, and a significant amount of old glass. This estate includes a number of dependencies: 18th century library; 19th century carriage house, converted to 7-room guest house with 2 bedrooms and baths, dining room, living room, kitchen; and garage with 2-bedroom apartment.
