Set on 12+ picturesque acres (*additional acreage available), Waverly Mansion is a historic landmark and a superb equestrian facility MINUTES TO DC & ANNAPOLIS. Built in 1855 by the prosperous tobacco grower, John W. Burroughs, this elegant Italianate Victorian, a rare remaining example of period “Big-House” two-staircase design, is richly appointed with high ceilings, elaborate moldings and medallions, classic marble mantels, original wood paneling and floors, and more. A grand entry hall with a magnificent 3-storey flying staircase opens to dual formal parlors, a formal dining room, and a gourmet kitchen. The bedrooms are unusuallyspacious , including a luxurious master-suite with spa-bathroom, a walk-in closet, and utility room. With rolling hills, pastoral vistas, and every amenity for the horse enthusiast, this private horse training facility is first class and Waverly Mansion is a home of rare and beautiful distinction.
The equestrian facility and grounds include stables with 12 stalls, 2 of which also serve as run-ins, plus a roomy indoor washing area, an owner’s tack room, a boarders’ tack room, a tenant/barn manager apartment, and various outbuildings, including a small animal barn, as well as the original smoke house and summer kitchen mirroring the architecture of the house. The numerous paddocks have board fencing and run-ins, and there is a dressage arena with professional footing and drainage to USDF specs.
Located in the protected Rural Tier, Waverly stands adjacent to Patuxent River Park, comprising 6,000 wooded acres and miles of glorious horse-riding trails. A spectacular historic home and excellent horse boarding/training facility, in a privileged location for both city life and equestrian pursuits, Waverly cannot easily be matched in the DC area.
