Serenely situated on a rise overlooking the tiny village of Saxe on the Little Roanoke River, Sylvan Hill is a majestic, 6,880 sf Queen Anne treasure that incorporates earlier portions built in 1785 and 1890 by a prominent Virginia family. With two full floors above an English bmnt and a fanciful tower with a single chamber affording sweeping views of the countryside, the fully restored house has 5 BRs, 4 full baths and 10 FPs. The lower level, which opens to a brick terrace, has a BR, full bath, expansive eat-in kitchen, and family room. On the main floor are dining room, front and rear parlors, a second kitchen, full bath, and a central hall opening to broad front and rear porches. On the second floor are 4 BRs and 2 full baths. But, wait! Whatâ€™s this? A twisted flight of steps leads to the tower, ideal for office or playroom. Above it: A floored attic for storage and evidence of the homeâ€™s evolution over 233 yrs. The 10-acre tract includes a handsome 5-car garage ornamented with a cupola and clerestory roof. From 1901-1913, Sylvan Hill was a Virginia State Test Farm. Could its next chapter include organic farming, orchards, a vineyard, B&B, wedding venue or horses?
