Last week one of the Piedmont’s finest properties sold for for $7.17 million. The home of former U.S. Senator John Warner, and his actress wife Elizabeth Taylor (divorced in 1982), located in Marhsall, is over 400 rolling acres of hunt country property and is referred to as “Atoka Farm”. Fifty acres were split off from the property and sold to a neighboring land owner at a previous date for $1 million, leaving 350 acres total in last week’s final sale. This 1860 7,000+ sq.ft. field-stone manor home boasted five bedrooms on three levels, an indoor pool and tennis court. There are also multiple barns, run-in sheds, and a half mile of Goose Creek frontage.
Thomas & Talbot of Middleburg, VA held the listing beginning in December 2015. According to Zillow.com, the home went under contract not long after listed at $8.7 million, but was then taken off the market. The home was placed back on the market in April of this year, and once again very quickly went under contract, selling last week at the $7.17 million price.
