Once home to a TV and radio celebrity Arthur Godfrey, this fine Loudoun County farm was second only to The White House in renown local properties. Located in a prime Loudoun County location on 37+ rolling acres with pastoral and wooded views, the estate combines the rarest of combinations; multiple living spaces and outbuildings, privacy, paved road access, high speed internet (Comcast Xfinity) while only minutes to Dulles Airport. There is potential to subdivide the property if the new owner choses, or place the property into a conservation easement for tax benefits. The original 1912 Tudor-style, manor house is Flemish brick on four sides with intricate detailing including the iconic G-note on main chimney and also includes: 6BR, 6 Full baths and 1 powder room. A spacious Family Room with beamed ceiling and stone fireplace is complemented by a modern kitchen with large kitchen island, breakfast room with fireplace, dining room with fireplace and front parlor also with a fireplace. In addition, there is a lovely living room with fireplace and sunroom with yet another fireplace. In all, there are 12 fireplaces in the main residence, two with shared chimneys. A 1980’s addition to the home brought a contemporary flair and added 4 additional bedrooms (2 are main level), 3.5 baths, a living room, dining room, 2 kitchens and 2 sitting rooms. A detached 3 car garage includes a 1 bedroom apartment. A large separate Staff House includes: 13 bedrooms, 9.5 baths, 3 kitchens with 3 living and dining room areas, 2 conference rooms and 2 offices. The compound also boasts a large Party Barn (50’x110′), formally an indoor ice rink, constructed from 200 year old timbers reclaimed from a PA barn. The Party Barn has a large viewing area or lounge that boasts a stone fireplace and wood floors. Imagine the gorgeous weddings/events/tasting room and memories that could be created in this magnificent space. Completing the estate are a 4 stall shed row barn and a 17 stall center aisle bank barn, with ample storage for farm equipment in the lower level and a 2BR apartment on the upper level. While it has been some time since horses were kept at the Godfrey, with some work, horses or other livestock could easily call the estate home again. Property is currently in Land Use for open space, term expires at the end of 2023. Zoned AR1.Recent improvements include new roofs on wing addition, Staff House, detached garage and Party Barn.
