GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. (RICHMONDBIZSENSE.COM) – Living like a king is getting cheaper. The asking price on the gargantuan home known around town as the “the castle in Goochland” has been cut almost in half.
Dover Hall, the 33,000-square-foot English Tudor-style estate in Manakin-Sabot, is for sale for $5.95 million, down from $11.5 million in 2007.
The house, which sits at 1500 Manakin Rd., has 10 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, 11 fireplaces, a 2,400-square-foot ballroom and a two-story library. If the prospect of keeping that many rooms tidy is what’s holding you back, fear not: The property’s staff are willing to continue working for a new owner, according to promotional materials.
