Description

Standing the test of time, Indian Banks circa 1699 and 1728 has witnessed over 300 years of history and the founding of a nation. An Icon on Virginia's Northern Neck, Indian Banks is situated on Morattico Creek at its confluence with the Rappahannock River. In August of 1608, Captain John Smith visited the Moraughtacund (Morattico) Indians at their principal village, near the present-day Indian Banks, which was Patented in 1652 by Thomas Glasscock, who received 600 acres of land on Morattico Creek in return for the surrender of a previous grant of 200 acres on the Piankatank River, which he received upon his emigration to America in 1643. In 1728, Captain William Glasscock married Esther Ball (a cousin of George Washington) and took up residence here. This truly captivating Manor House, with a provenance that transcends the ages, is distinctly English in its Architecture, featuring Jacobean, Georgian and Queen Anne - English Baroque elements. Beautiful Flemish Bond Brick Work with a rare Scrolled Soffit above the River facing entrance (one of only two known examples in the Commonwealth of Virginia). The hand rubbed brick work is still stunning after all these years! Featured multiple times on the renowned and prestigious Historic Garden Week in Virginia Tour, this property is convenient to Richmond, Washington, D.C., Williamsburg and Fredericksburg. 18 Minutes to Kilmarnock and 15 Minutes to Warsaw. Indian Banks has significant Archeological, Cultural and Historic Value.Ancient Boxwood Gardens and Alle's abound here along with Rivers of Daffodils, Towering Magnolias of various types, Heirloom Roses, Ancient Hardwoods and endless waterfront views abound. Additional property features include a dry basement, various Barns, Outbuildings, Two Cottages - one of which is thought to predate the original house with a full dry Basement - ideal for use as a wine cellar, two-car garage with additional Storage / Apartment above, Pier, Dock, Screened Porch / Outdoor Kitchen and so much more. Convenient to fine dining, wineries, historic sites, art galleries, world class resorts, farmers markets, charming small towns and some of the best oysters and seafood on the east coast. Come to Indian Banks and live your best life.
