Brookside, a historic landmark property in the village of Millwood in Clarke County is for sale. Via Clarke Times-Courier.
The 1775 home was built by Col. Nathanial Burwell, who was one of the founders of the Burwell-Morgan Mill next door.
Burwell came to Clarke County from his aristocratic family’s home, Carter Grove, near Williamsburg. He was given 5,500 acres here from his great-grandfather, Robert “King” Carter, the fabulously successful colonial plantation baron of the Piedmont area of Virginia. Burwell started Millwood by first building Brookside, a lovely Georgian clapboard house, for his family to live in while their mansion at the nearby plantation, Carter Hall, was under construction.
The property includes three and a half outbuildings. Included in the parcel is the former slave quarters. According to the information, property has been completely renovated. It listed for $899,000.
