Own a piece of history with Camden, a 19th-century Rappahannock River estate in Port Royal, Virginia. 

For just under $3 million, this elegant riverfront home at 7314 Camden Road in Port Royal, Virginia, could be yours. It sits on 26 acres and features its own deep water dock. Built in 1859, this estate is a registered national historic landmark.

With six bedrooms, three baths, and a guest house, there is plenty of room for a family and the occasional houseguest. As soon as you walk in, you are welcomed by a dramatic sweeping staircase.

The rooms are full of old-world charm, including ornate cornices and generous windows to bring in the natural light. The many chandeliers throughout the home really set the mood for elegant entertaining.

The dining room was made for large gatherings -- Can't you imagine festive holiday meals here? With the enormous kitchen, it would be a snap to prepare them! The adjacent breakfast nook would make a great spot for a kids' table at Thanksgiving.

The beautiful sunroom is just the place to curl up with a book and a cup of tea after dinner.

Outside, the veranda has an incredible view of the river and a charming evergreen hedgerow.

You can take a leisurely stroll down to your dock to fish or simply dangle your feet in the water. You have plenty of space to tie up your sailboat and a canoe or two.

Last, but certainly not least, the guesthouse provides a great option for weekend guests. It even has its own full kitchen in case your visitors want to fend for themselves.
