New Listing – Indian Banks, Circa 1699 & 1728 – At the Confluence of Morattico Creek and the Rappahannock river…

Indian Banks – Circa 1699 https://www.karinandrewsestates.com/ListingDetails/2494-Simonson-RD-Richmond-County-VA-22460/10256246/

Standing the test of time, Indian Banks circa 1699 and 1728 has witnessed over 300 years of lives lived, lost and the founding of our nation.  An icon on Virginia’s Northern Neck, Indian Banks is situated near the confluence of Lancaster and Morattico Creeks near the site of one of the Indian villages shown on Captain John Smith’s 1609 map of Virginia.  In August 1608, Captain John Smith was entertained by the Moraughtacund Indians at their principal village on the Northern Neck near present day Indian Banks.  Indian Bank’s site was patented in 1652 by Thomas Glasscock, who received 600 acres of land on Morattico Creek in return for the surrender of a grant of 200 acres on Piankatank River, which he had received upon his emigration to America in 1643. Records of the Indian Banks house run back to 1728, when Captain William Glasscock married Ester Ball (A cousin of George Washington on his Mother’s side) and took up residence there. One of the bricks bears the inscribed initials “G.W.” with a Masonic Symbol.  This truly captivating Manor House is distinctly English in its Architecture; featuring Jacobean, Georgian and Queen-Ann elements.  A rare Scrolled Soffit / Jack Arch above the Main Entrance is one of only two known examples in Virginia.

Contact Karin Andrews to arrange your showing of this spectacularly rare offering on Virginia’s serene and magnificent Northern Neck.

Beautifully Manicured Gardens, Mature Boxwood, Towering Ancient Trees & Endless Rappahannock River views abound, with deep protected water-frontage on Morattico Creek.  Other Amenities include a Pier, Dock, Stables, Guest Cottage, 2 Car Garage with Bonus Room above and Workshop, Outdoor Kitchen, Screened Porch, various Barns & a deep drilled well. Indian Banks has been featured on the renowned and prestigious Historic Garden Week in Virginia Tour and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register – a designation which is honorary.  Convenient to Washington DC, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Williamsburg & Newport News. 18 Minutes to Kilmarnock & Warsaw. Historic Sites, Wineries, World Class Resorts, Fine Dining, Farmers Markets & a full-service Marina are all nearby. Beautiful Chimneys with 7 Fireplaces. Numerous outbuildings at Indian Banks include a turn-of-the-century livestock and hay barn, an early nineteenth-century building which was most recently a granary, a late nineteenth-century stable and carriage shed, poultry houses, and two or three small but well-built sheds. There is also a more recent two-car Garage with workshop and apartment above as well as a guest cottage. The ancient towering trees, boxwood alee’ and gardens surrounding the manor house are magnificent.  The waterfrontage and views of Morattico Creek and the Rappahannock River are absolutely breathtaking.
