Frascati, c. 1823. Here is an exceedingly rare opportunity to acquire a national landmark perfectly located on 62.74 acres in the Somerset estate area of Orange County. Frascati was built for Philip Barbour, Associate Justice for the Supreme Court by John Perry, known for his work for Thomas Jefferson in building the University of Virginia and Monticello. Frascati is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Virginia Historic Landmark. For a full history and architectural details about Frascati please see the Wikipedia listing in the documents section. In addition to the manor home the restored summer kitchen now serves as a charming guest cottage, the original formal gardens still exist with magnificent 200 year old boxwoods and extraordinary specimen trees. A lovely gunnite swimming pool is tucked away in a “secret garden” The 62 acres with Frascati is mostly open in high quality pasture and is suitable for any agricultural pursuit. There are several useful barns and sheds. The gently rolling land boasts superb views of the Blue Ridge mountains and is surrounded by large farms. Frascati is protected with a conservation easement with the VOF and The Virginia Board of Historic Resources. (See Documents).
