The Glenfiddich Estate offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of history along the Journey through Hallowed Ground. The estate is centrally located on a private one-acre lot within walking distance to downtown Leesburg, Virginia. Ideal as a private home or corporate headquarters with training facility and potential for a boutique hotel or inn. The estate is also available as two separate parcels.
Glenfiddich has been carefully restored and lovingly maintained. Updated systems and technology afford the comfort of today with the luxury and sumptuous design of a time gone by. This very private estate also includes the Carriage House and Stables, an icehouse and smokehouse. The Carriage House (2001) is a single family home with an open plan kitchen/dining and living space. The Stables (2004) is a car enthusiast’s dream with four car bays with a wash station and room for offices, in-law or rental suite above.
Today Glenfiddich overlooks N. King Street as the reigning Grand Dame. Formerly known as Harrison Hall, the earliest log cabin structure dates to the late 18th century with the Italianate main additions built for the Harrisons between 1850-60.
The most famous of visitors was General Robert E. Lee who was brought to Glenfiddich after being thrown by his horse Traveller and sustaining injuries to his wrists. It was while recuperating that General Lee called together a war council with his closest advisors: Generals Stonewall Jackson, Armistead, Stuart and Longstreet. It was in the dining room that they planned the Confederate attack on Maryland, which culminated in the Battle of Antietam, the tactical turning point in the American Civil War that led to Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
Another famous visitor was James Dickey who resided at Glenfiddich from 1966-68. It is here that he penned much of his famous novel, “Deliverance”, while the U.S. Poet Laureate at the Library of Congress.
