For Sale: Gallison Hall
I’m not sure where I stumbled upon Gallison Hall which is currently for sale in Charlottesville, Virginia but it was definitely worth a deep dive into the historic house. The Georgian style house was designed by the architect Stanhope Johnson and built between 1931 and 1933 and sits just three miles west of the University of Virginia. It was the home of James F. Scott who “combined worldly objects with stately interiors, which in addition to a traditional library and grand entrance hall also included a pool house and dedicated tennis room.” When he died, his collections were put up for auction at Sotheby’s in 2018. The house was also put up for sale but not sure if it was ever sold. It’s currently on the market with McLean Faulconer for $8,450,000 which seems like a steal considering it includes 43-acres. I’d definitely buy it if I had the money.
These floorplans are architectural plans of what could be done with some areas like the kitchen. But they give you a good idea of the interior which also includes other floors and outbuildings.
There were a lot of staged images online which are a good example why antiques are important in historic houses.
