Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, or NRHP, in August 2017, the 1,100-acre estate is located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In addition to the main 12,500-square-foot manor, there are 17 other buildings on the grounds.

The house is owned by Donald Brennan, the former head of Morgan Stanley Capital Partners, Bloomberg reported in 2019. He bought the residence in 2006 for $22 million.

“When I first saw Llangollen, it struck me as just magical. Never before had I seen a structure which was so comfortable in its setting,” Brennan told Insider via the listing agent, Peter Leonard-Morgan with Sotheby’s International Realty.

Brennan first put the house up for sale in August 2019 for $34 million, listing records show. Over the next two years, its price was incrementally cut down by $6.5 million, bringing it to its current price of $27.5 million.

The median listing home price in Upperville, Virginia, is $1.7 million, per Realtor.com. There are currently nine single-family homes for sale, and Llangollen is the most expensive listing in the area.
