Summary
"For four centuries the ideal of the gentleman's farm has inspired Virginians to create extraordinary homes on landscapes of unparalleled beauty ... The houses featured in this book range from the Eastern Shore through the fabled Hunt Country and Piedmont, encompassing centuries-old family plantations and presidential retreats as well as aristocratic private estates lovingly restored as homes, working farms and resorts. Together, the elegant homes of these gentlemen--and gentlewomen--farmers tell the story of enduring allure of traditional country life, architecture and interior design."--Flyleaf.
