Location: Richmond, Virginia
Old world grandeur awaits in this circa-1930s Tudor Revival with impressive craftsmanship across its whopping 14,422 square feet. Named Garland, the estate was designed by MIT-trained architect Henry G. Morse, who incorporated into the home many of the same architectural details found in two Tudor manors he relocated from England and reconstructed in Richmond (those houses are Garland's neighbors.)
Look for detailed woodwork in the doors, staircase, and paneling over the limestone fireplaces, plus ornamental pargeting, and stained leaded glass windows throughout. Now on the market for $4.95M, the high-ceilinged home offers spacious formal living and dining rooms, 11 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, and a dreamy slate terrace overlooking gardens and an elliptical pool.
