Everything about this week's featured listing says elegance and charm.

This 19th-century Gloucester estate, known as "Lisburne," was built in 1810 and features a 6-bedroom, 4-bath home and several outbuildings on 70 waterfront acres on Vaughan's Creek. Yes, you read that right, 70 acres.



The property is located at 7971 Glass Road in Gloucester and it is currently listed for $1,675,000 by Shaheen, Ruth, Martin, and Fonville Real Estate. The main house is built in the classic Colonial fashion, with four stories, including a finished basement level.


Your guests will feel like they've been whisked back in time as they walk through the gracious salon, dining room, and parlor. You'll have a ball finding artwork to fill the walls.

Upstairs, the bedrooms were made for gorgeous antique furniture. Custom woodwork, fireplaces, and plank floors bring warmth to every room.



Not everything on the property harkens back to the 1800s, though. Out back, the pool will be a favorite spot during the warm summer months. The pool house is the perfect place to retreat for a quick nap while the grillmaster gets to work.


Walk a bit further down the wooded path to the creekfront dock and gazebo. How idyllic is this charming feature? Vaughan's Creek is just a short paddle away from beautiful Mobjack Bay.


The property is dotted with outbuildings like a stand-alone workshop, greenhouse, garden shed, and garage.


Not pictured are extensive gardens, a tennis court, and a 4-stall horse stable surrounded by green pastures. For more information, or to schedule a tour of the property, visit the original listing.
