Set on nearly 300 acres of lush Virginia countryside with sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Elway Hall captures the timeless elegance and fairy-tale romance of a bygone era. This extraordinary, Edwardian mansion with more than 15,000 square feet was built in 1907 by prominent industrialist and railroad tycoon, Johnson Newlon Camden for his daughter Annie and son-in-law, General Baldwin Day Spilman. Her ethereal image is reflected in three-story custom Tiffany windows over the grand carved oak staircase. The estate has been home for the past two decades to internationally acclaimed interior designer and author, Barry Dixon and award-winning Washington, DC television news personality, Will Thomas. Dixon created a residence that brings the past into the present by incorporating the most modern conveniences while maintaining the timeless elegance of the Edwardian period. Renowned architect H.H. Richardson used a colorful mix of coursed-stone blocks which add pattern to the massive masonry walls accented with red tile shingles in the gables and a terra-cotta tile roof. The interiors feature approximately 13-foot ceilings, a stunning Dixon designed kitchen and eat-in butler's pantry with a built-in banquet, walk-in larder, cobbled limestone floors, 9 dedicated second floor bedrooms, 5 additional bedrooms on the third level used as offices, 7 bathrooms, 17 working wood burning fireplaces, original stone walled lower kitchen and gated wine cellar are among the long list of incredible and timeless amenities.

This custom Frank Randolph designed residence and its amenities include a private beachfront, boat dock, a two story pool house with Belvedere, an outdoor kitchen and patio, an elegant swimming pool, and a fully stocked pond and 4 plus acre vineyard. Views from every part of the property are absolutely breathtaking. Landscaping designed by Barbara Paca (the only landscape designer in North America to be honored by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II) is simply magnificent. The interiors of the main residence, pool house and 4 car garage were designed by renowned Washington, D.C. designer Skip Sroka. Over 1400 feet of direct waterfront on Leeds Creek provides for a tranquil man made beach (added by the current owners) and a private dock. Leeds Creek hosts many famous properties including the home that was the backdrop for the memorable film, Wedding Crashers. The spacious foyer with grand circular staircase looks directly through the home out onto the back lawn with views of the waterway. The two-story foyer displays a custom mural. The formal double living rooms to the right of the home offer fireplaces and French doors leading to the lawn and garden have stunning water views. Inspiration for these formal rooms came from two paintings that the current owners purchased in France. Beyond the double living rooms, a private hallway leads to two main level guest bedrooms and full bath. Designed to be in a wing of their own, these bedrooms offer complete privacy for houseguests and easy access to the grounds and other amenities. On the upper level of the home you will find a lovely master suite with fireplace and a new spa inspired marble bath. A huge master closet provides ample space for any wardrobe. Water views from the master suite are stunning as the room runs the full length of the house. Two additional bedrooms on the opposite side of the second level each contain their own bath. Once back in the main entry hall and foyer, a few steps to the left will take one to the grand dining room with fireplace. This room runs from the front to the back of the home and affords seating for up to twenty guests in a warm inviting setting. Additional French doors lead to the lawn and waterway. The adjacent kitchen is classically designed and would please Julia Child. The fireplace is an exact replica of a French hearth. Special amenities include a La Corneau stove, an expansive marble topped island, table space to seat 8 to 10 and top of the line appliances, along with a pantry. From the doorknobs to the faucets, every detail has been singularly sourced and thoughtfully designed. Beyond the cooks kitchen is the oversized family room with a surprise cupboard, and a staircase leading to an upstairs library (or home office/second family room/guest suite, or alternatively bedroom number 6) and full bath. Once back on the main level, French doors lead out to walkways winding through the property between stunning landscaping to the pool house, pool, and outdoor kitchen. The outdoor kitchen can be used year-round and offers ample amenities for entertaining in style. Custom tables and seating throughout the pool area provide ample room for guests and family. Designed by local architects John B. Braithwaite and Lauren Dianich of Attelier 11 the pool house has an exquisite bar area, living room, pool table room, an upstairs open porch with fireplace and two bedrooms with baths. Additional amenities on the property include a 2.5 acre fully stocked pond, and a duck blind. A weekend retreat or a year round residence, Belle Rive offers a rich history, elegant architecture, an inviting and mesmerizing setting, swimming, a private beach, a boat dock, stocked pond, vineyard, a private pool house and brand new 4 car garage with mahogany doors.
