"River Run Manor"
"River Run Manor" is a 61-acre estate sitting high on a bluff overlooking the James River. The 16,000 sqft Georgian Revival mansion of monumental scale was built in 1981-1987 by Taylor & Parrish. It is known countrywide for its handsome design features, architectural integrity, and magnificent craftsmanship using the finest materials available. Overlooking the gardens and the river, its upper blue stone terrace is surrounded by a limestone balustrade and opens to a double curved staircase to the lower terrace. The mansion's interiors burst with extravagant architectural ornamentation, including marble floors, ornamental cornices and plaster friezes, 18-foot columns with gilded Corinthian capitals, crystal chandeliers, and so much more! A Jeffersonian pool house with a hexagonal raised dome presides over an oval pool with blue stone terraces and a limestone balustrade. Nearby is a tennis court with a covered viewing stand.
