    Property Details

    Clear View, an iconic property built by the late Lora and E. Claiborne Robins, is majestically situated on a rolling, well-manicured landscape that looks across River Road at the Country Club of Virginia. Its 5 1/2 acre park-like grounds feature an expansive back yard, marble terraces, pool, pool house, gazebo, fountain and brick walkways - all privately guarded by its stately brick wall, handsome iron gates and fencing. The formal rooms are adorned with elaborate moldings, inlaid flooring, and have soaring 10' ceilings. This stately colonial has over 13,000 square feet and a litany of amenities, including an elevator, six bedrooms, seven full baths, four fireplaces, a finished basement, sun room, family room, a walnut paneled library, a curved flying staircase, first and second floor master suites, and so much more. The property is served with two generators, one for main dwelling and a second for the pool house and greenhouse. Private drives provide access to the grounds for caterers, lawn care and tradesmen. The property is a private oasis in the heart of Westhampton, yet located in Henrico County. Interior photos shown here were taken when it was owned by the prior owner.
