This historic treasure was built in 1803 by William Dunkum, a Scotsman brought to Albemarle County to assist in the building of Monticello and the Universtity of Virginia. The bricks were hand-made in and purchased from Thomas Jefferson's brick yard. All original joints are mortised and the floors are original hard pine. The Colonial interior compliments the home with hand-made mantels, stairwells, doors and windows. Separated from the main house by an intimate garden is a guest cottage including; basement kitchen, two first floor bedrooms and two smaller 3/4 story bedrooms. A small apartment above the garage would be ideal for a home office. The residence and cottage overlook a pond and are supported by a 5 stall horse barn with paddocks and abundant pasture acreage. The top of the property offers an elevated building site with expansive mountain views on a separate tax map parcel from the main residence.
