Two Adjoining Waterfront Estate Properties in Gloucester – Available for Purchase

The current offering of Carousel located at 8495 Freewelcome Lane and Mansfield on the Piankatank at 8493 Freewelcome Lane – Dutton, Virginia creates the opportunity to own a fairly secluded world-class waterfront compound, composed of two distinct neighboring properties,  on the Middle Peninsula, in the Chesapeake Bay Region of Virginia.

Carousel (previously offered at $4,995,000) HAS BEEN REDUCED TO $2,995,000 and is set on 40.63 acres fronting on the Piankatank River!   Carousel occupies a commanding presence above the Piankatank with superior elevation and breathtaking views and vistas.

The 10,000 sq. ft. 23 great house is actually the original 1938 Manor House and a luxurious 3 story addition, with a spa feel completed in 2007,  These two homes are connected by a curved Hyphen that unites these two homes so beautifully.  It is a center hub of activity for both homes and boasts a Lux Club Style Wet Bar with views toward the Gillette Walled Garden and the  spectacular waterfront!

Add to all of this smart home technology,  geothermal heating and cooling, state of the art security systems, superior elevation, a world-class pier and covered dock with lifts fit for a Hinckley Picnic, with an additional boat slip with lift can accommodate a fairly good-sized fishing boat.  (The current owners had a 22′ Regulator for the smaller slip).  2 Jet Ski lifts and an additional yacht slip create the ultimate mooring, on deep protected water.

Twice featured on the Historic Garden Week in Virginia (Gloucester/Mathews) Tour in 2001 and 2010, Carousel also features a lovely walled garden by Charles Gillette, Manor house designed by Clarence Wright Huff, World Class Tennis Courts, walking or riding trails, acres and acres of glorious gardens, rare trees, Glass English Greenhouse, indoor/outdoor sound systems,  whole house generator, in-ground irrigation, in-ground salt pool and spa, four seasons porch, attached and detached garages, world-class temperature controlled wine cellars, elevator, 2 gourmet and 2 service kitchens, grand halls, exquisite finishes, fixtures and moldings, 2 first floor master-suites, cedar lined closets, 5 working fireplaces and so much more.

Mansfield adjoins Carousel and is set on 5 scenic acres with its own gated entrance, mature plantings, gardens, lovely waterfront and a three story 6,400+ home with walk out basement and two additional living levels.  Contact me today to arrange your showing of these two stunning properties.  Both sellers are ready to move on to the next adventure and destination in their lives!  Come see these two gorgeous properties and make an offer.   Carousel is the buying opportunity of a lifetime right now.
