Welcome to the historic Arthur Godfrey Estate! Once home to a TV and Radio celebrity and a Saudi Royal Prince, the Godfrey Estate was second only to The White House in renown local properties. Located in a prime Loudoun County location on 37+ rolling acres with pastoral and wooded views, the estate combines the rarest of combinations; multiple living spaces and outbuildings, privacy, paved road access, high speed internet (Comcast Xfinity) while only minutes to Dulles Airport/major commuting routes. The Estate is ideally suited to be a Family Compound although favorable zoning (AR1) open up uses for Agri-Businesses such as a Bed and Breakfast, Winery, Brewery, Wedding Venue, Events Center, Conference Center, Corporate Retreat or Boutique Hotel--or maybe even a combination of a few of these options! Between the fascinating and expansive history of the property, the existing structures and infrastructure, along with the vision of a new owner, the Godfrey Estate could once again become a Loudoun County landmark and the type of legacy one can be proud to pass along for generations to come. Additionally, there is potential to subdivide the property if the new owner choses, or place the property into a conservation easement for tax benefits. The original 1912 Tudor-style Manor House is Flemish brick on four sides with intricate detailing including the iconic "G-note" on main chimney and also includes: 6BR, 6 Full baths and 1 powder room. A spacious Family Room with beamed ceiling and stone fireplace is complemented by a modern kitchen with large kitchen island, breakfast room with fireplace, dining room with fireplace and front parlor also with a fireplace. In addition, there is a lovely living room with fireplace and sunroom with yet another fireplace. In all, there are 12 fireplaces in the main residence, two with shared chimneys. A 1980's addition to the home brought a contemporary flair and added 4 additional bedrooms (2 are main level), 3.5 baths, a living room, dining room, 2 kitchens and 2 sitting rooms. A detached 3 car garage includes a 1 bedroom apartment. A large separate Staff House includes: 13 bedrooms, 9.5 baths, 3 kitchens with 3 living and dining room areas, 2 conference rooms and 2 offices. The compound also boasts a large Party Barn(50'x110'), formally an indoor ice rink, constructed from 200 year old timbers reclaimed from a PA barn. The Party Barn has a large viewing area or lounge that boasts a stone fireplace and wood floors. Imagine the gorgeous weddings/events/tasting room and memories that could be created in this magnificent space. Completing the estate are a 4 stall shed row barn and a 17 stall center aisle bank barn, with ample storage for farm equipment in the lower level and a 2BR apartment on the upper level. While it has been some time since horses were kept at the Godfrey, with some work, horses or other livestock could easily call the estate home again. Property is currently in Land Use for open space, term expires at the end of 2023. Zoned AR1. Recent improvements include new roofs on wing addition, Staff House, detached garage and Party Barn. HVAC in wing has been completely replaced in 2018, oil furnace in historic house replaced 10 years ago (above ground oil tank is owned). 5-80 gallon hot water heaters have been replaced within 5 years. Sale is strictly "As-Is" **Some interior photos were virtually staged**
