Chellowe Plantation, located about 150 miles from Washington, D.C., is a part of a grant of 6,740 acres originally in Albemarle County, now in Buckingham County, Virginia. It was patented to Col. John Bolling on July 20, 1748. Chellowe is named for an old English estate of the Bolling family. It was owned by the Bollings until 1848 when Col. Robert Hubbard obtained the property. Currently Chellowe is owned and is being restored by the Gene Dixon Family.
This lovely historical home is an imposing example of colonial architecture. Its secluded location, the old house spring from which an abundance of clean clear water still flows providing water for the garden fountains, the tall trees, the extensive view, the gorgeous sunset beyond the mountains, the very atmosphere of the place, its history and traditions, all combine to make Chellowe a delightful, restful place in these days of hurry and uncertainty.

belle évocation de l'automne avec en prime un clin d'oeil sur une belle architecture à peine cachée. Un grand soin apporté aucx lumières qui sont ici parfaites ainsi qu'au cadrage et à la mise au point.

Indeed, in the frenzied pace we call "modern life," an antebellum home in the hinterland of Virginia offers a serene setting to sit back and ponder. What an appealing place! What a superb shot of the huge house, surrounded by colossal trees. There must be huge oaks around that date back to the very beginning of the construction of the house, and certainly to the Colonial Days of this country.

The hidden mansion is so special and exciting to see among the trees.
