This vibrant community near the gentle grace of the Blue RidgeMountains boasts numerous wineries, breweries & has drawn many artists & artisans through the years seeking to grow and nurture their families andcreativity in a safe and uniquely private environment such as Llanarth.”Fully Restored Historic Home. Named after Llanarth, a Parish in South Wales, this historic estate was home to the Gilmer Family for many years.

Its design – an Italianate House – was popularized by architect Alexander Jackson Davis from 1840-1885. Its asymmetrical floor plan in rectangular sections with wings and a large porch adorned with columns imitates the look and feel of an Italian villa of Tuscany.

This amazing estate property is a true delight. Privately situated on 3 wooded acres. When you enter the property, it is as if the trees wrap around you to create a feeling of serenity. A perfect getaway for a full time residence.

True to the Italianate style, the primary dwelling has gently sloping roof lines, emphatic overhanging eaves, tall chimneys, arches, and archways. Llanarth’s orientation takes full advantage of slopes and variations in the landscape and the overhanging eaves provide protection from the sun and rain while outdoors.

Beautifully proportioned rooms. Meticulous attention to detail with the renovation. Lots of private spaces in the home. Could make an ideal AirBnB. Lots of covered porches, balconies. and glassed-in and screened-in porches.

House was built as a 2 over 2 built in the 1840's and added onto in 1890. The most recent renovation has been during the current owner's stewardship in the last 20 years. This home has 5 working fireplaces. 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.

This would be a really fun home to live in. Further includes a studio/cottage. It is around 1200 +/- sq ft. You will fall in love.
