 'Huntland', the Joseph B. Thomas estate designed by Peabody, Wilson & Brown c. 1915 in Middleburg, Virginia.  'Huntland' was comprised of over 400 acres and was used primarily for hunting.    The original layout for the estate and some of the outbuildings were designed by Frederick J. Sterner.  The plans were then transferred to a local architect, R.E. Haga, but after his death were taken over by Peabody, Wilson & Brown.  As was the firm's specialty, the main house was enlarged out of the frame of a c. 1830 building.  Click HERE for more on Thomas and HERE to see 'Huntland' on google earth.

Such a terrific place I've posted about the Thomases a couple of times---very stylish couple. Their glamorous Maine house is one of the iconic modernist houses of the 1930's, a wild contrast to this wonderful place:
