Glen Roy, owned by the Fleetwood Garner family since 1945, is a unique 260-acre suburban river front estate located between River Rd and the James River. The main residence, an 11,000 + sq ft Georgian country home, was designed by noted Virginia architect W. Duncan Lee & was built in 1927. The surrounding grounds and gardens were designed by the widely acclaimed landscape architect, Charles Gillette. Approached by a scenic paved ½ mile driveway, the stately residence rests on a prominent hill surrounded by 100 acres of uplands & 160 acres of lowlands with trails. With ½ mile of James River frontage, Glen Roy has its own boat dock & ramp providing access to 10 navigable miles of smooth water west of Bosher Dam. The estate is supported by many improvements including a recently renovated 60x30 pool & brick pool house, fenced tennis court, a caretaker's cottage, airplane hangar, offices, sheds and various storage buildings. Located in the heart of Richmond's most fashionable West End, Glen Roy is just a few miles from UR, VCU, upscale shopping districts, and the Richmond's Financial district. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of Virginia's finest estates.
