If the thought of buying and renovating historic homes piques your interest, this Smithfield, Virginia, estate is the property for you.
Built in 1809, the central building is known as the Davis-Day House. Two additional structures were added on in 2014 to create an expansive, modernized home within a stone's throw of Norfolk.
The property is located at 15400 Mokete Trail in Smithfield, Virginia, and features five bedrooms, three baths, a powder room, two full kitchens, and several outbuildings on 22 acres with a private pond.
Classic features resonate throughout the home. Fireplaces, chandeliers, and exquisite woodwork add a sense of elegance to all of the rooms. Dramatic vaulted ceilings and exposed brick bring in a rustic note to the newer wings.
The kitchen is enormous, with an open plan to facilitate movement and flow. Custom cabinetry cleverly disguises a recessed refrigerator and top-of-the-line appliances.
Make your way down the hall, through the dramatic pocket doors to the formal dining room.
The cavernous master suite features a beautiful en suite bath with double vanities and a claw foot tub. Relaxation at your fingertips!
Outside, a formal garden leads away from the home, toward the various outbuildings.
There is plenty of room for horses, and stables stand ready to house them. Acres of the land surrounding the home are already fenced in for riding or grazing.
The current list price on this home and property is $1,950,000. For more information or to schedule a viewing, visit the original listing by Sotheby's International Realty.
