Steeped in history dating back to 1827, "Rokeby" is a classic first-period Federal-style brick manor graciously sited atop the crest of a hill more than 100 feet above the Rappahannock River valley in King George County, Virginia. The main home was modified and expanded over the last two centuries but still retains its original historic character through the preservation of its defining architectural materials, design, adornments, and room proportions.

Each room is unique yet complementary. All include intricate moldings, custom millwork and most rooms enjoy wood-burning fireplaces. Breathtaking views of the surrounding pastures and gardens convey. Perfect for entertaining, the main house is rich in grand gathering spaces. A north to south front hall with uncut 36ft long heart-pine floors, double parlors with pocket doors to the right and, to the left, a formal dining room and beautifully appointed library/study is as refined as it is inviting. An updated kitchen, butler's pantry and office complete the main living area. Upstairs are 6 bedrooms-- 4 on the main block, and 2 which were added when the addition was built in 1920--and 5 full baths. On the ground level, there is a full English basement with concrete floors and an outside entrance.

There are two circa 1920's cottages that allow for multi-generational living, provide opportunities to generate rental income or house on-site caregivers. The smokehouse, play house and original Sears Roebuck catalog barn with 4 stalls & a riding ring dot the nearby topography.

Included in the 130 acres are mature trees and landscape, panoramic vistas, fields, pastures and forest. In 2005, Rokeby was named to the National Register of Historic Places.

This offering is an opportunity to take stewardship of a significant historical asset, as well as the good fortune to have an extraordinary home in the heart of the rural countryside of Virginia.
