Ben Lomond – Circa 1730 Dunnsville, VA

Ben Lomond is the only historic home deemed architecturally important enough from all of Lower Essex County, Virginia to be photographed in 1933 along with Bathurst, which no longer exists and great houses from Upper Essex, which include Elmwood, Blandfield, Brookes Bank, Edenetta and Kinloch, which is no longer standing.  Ben Lomond is currently offered for sale and presents a rare buying opportunity.  It is truly one of the last remaining Great Houses with a great historic legacy.
