Join us in Gloucester this weekend for the Daffodil Festival. Below are links to two articles I have written on Gloucester County, Virginia. One is of the Daffodils of Gloucester and the other is the History of Gloucester County, Virginia from Pocohontas, to the battle of the hook, to T.C.Walker to Augustine Washington thru to the present day. It is part of the Gloucester County Visitors Guide and was first published in The House and Home Magazine.

Located just minutes from Urbanna, Gloucester Court House and Mathews by boat or by car, on the scenic and pristine Piankatank River is Carousel – Designed and built by one of Richmond’s great Architects – Clarence Huff, during the Country Place Era in Virginia, Circa 1938. A walled Garden nearby by Charles Gillette. The two of them together were a legendary combination. Charles Gillette was a close personal friend of the original owners of Carousel, previously known as Belle Terre. (The name of Carousel was given by a later property owner). The property features more amenities than I could possibly list here. The waterfront presence is spectacular. The property is in Three Parcels with deep water, Charles Gillette Walled Garden, absolutely beautiful Tennis Courts, 2 Wine Cellars, 2 First Floor Master Suites, 2 full and 2 service kitchens, Captivating views of the Waterfront and extensive Gardens from every room. Low Maintenance Pier, Covered Docks and so much more. The photos below as wonderful as they are simply cannot do this exquisite property justice.
Carousel is without equal in Chesapeake Bay Region of Virginia and must be experienced to be appreciated. Real Estate Brokers, call today to arrange your showing or preview of Carousel.
The owners have approximately $6,500,000 in the property. Make no mistake, this is the buying opportunity of a lifetime.
