A haunted historic home that once housed Confederate Army General Robert Lee has gone on the market for $3.75 million.
Glenfiddich House, originally called Harrison Hall, was built in 1780 and became famous in Leesburg, Virginia, for its unique history and links to the Civil War.
Today the one-acre estate, which boasts a new four-bedroom home, office, an 1800s spring house built and 1850s smokehouse, has gone on the market for $3.75 million with Engel & Völkers Lansdowne, Wall Street Journal reports.
And the property comes with something else; its own Confederate soldier ghost.
Melanie Miles, who is selling her home, says she has seen the officer on numerous occasions – always appearing in full military regalia.
‘He looked right at me,’ she said.
She believes it is the spirit of Col. Erasmus Burt, a soldier who died at the house while it was being used as a military hospital after the Battle of Ball’s Bluff in 1861, according to a Civil War-era diary discovered in the house.
However, she insists that potential buyers have nothing to worry about.
Burt is a friendly ghost.
The ghost is just part of the history of the estate which was used as a hospitality center and later a military hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers during the Civil War.
Its most famous visitor General Robert E. Lee who led the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia from 1862 until his surrender in 1865.
Lee was treated at Harrison Hall on September 4, 1862, for a broken hand and sprained wrist after his horse, Traveler, shied away from a courier. Later that day he held a war council with the likes of Generals Lewis Armistead, Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson, and James ‘Jeb’ Stuart.
There they planned the invasion of Maryland which resulted in the Battle of Antietam.
Poet and author James Dickey also called Glenfiddich House in the 1960s and it was there he began his most famous novel Deliverance.
The new name is believed to have stemmed from local merchant Henry Harrison, who bought the property and built a grand mansion next to the simple cabin.
The estate, based around 40 miles outside Washington, D.C., has eight bedrooms and is packed with original features including pine floorboards and a fireplace in nearly every room.
The dining room, where Gen. Lee held his war meeting, still boasts its original moldings and Tennessee marble fireplace while a painting of the historic scene hangs by the fireplace.
Miles and her husband, David, bought the house in the early 1990s for $690,000, public records show, and have since spent about $1.5 million to restore it.
‘We hope we’re going to pass this on to somebody who’s going to have as much interest and respect as we do for the property,’ Miles said. ‘It’s been a lot of fun.’
