THE DONNELLY HOUSE and THE BATTLE of FALLING WATERS 1863 Battlefield on 16 +/- acres, the site of the last battle of The Gettysburg Campaign fought on northern soil. THE PROPERTY - The manor home is a battlefield witness structure that has been immortalized in print, historic letters and art. This 1832 National Register Property is recorded in history as the Donnelly House. The imposing brick edifice was the home and law office of Daniel Donnelly, an attorney, politician and C & O Canal investor. The Gettysburg Visitors Center displays a reproduction copy of the famous Civil War artist Edwin Forbes' drawing of the Donnelly House and Battle as its' finale exhibit. THE RESIDENCE - This formal four-story Flemish Bond Facade brick masonry residence is of exceptional Federal and Greek Revival design . Although a classic center-hall style home with 10 fireplaces, it has been tastefully appointed with a gourmet kitchen, a master suite and three master baths. The historic public and private rooms have been painstakingly restored by the seller who is a nationally recognized expert and appraiser of the decorative arts and antiquities. These public rooms include the keeping room, the law library, the law office, the grand entry hall, the sweeping staircase and the front and back parlors. The private rooms include 3 state rooms with fireplaces. There is also a workshop, half bath and abundant storage rooms. The entire fourth story awaits final restoration and could be an ideal owner's suite or guest lodging. THE SITE - The property and it's numerous dependencies are contiguous to farmland and public parkland. The manor house has imposing formal boxwood gardens in English geometric character. These gardens form a secluded oasis from the property's battlefield, farmland and the neighboring agrarian countryside. The property is accessed by a hidden tree lined gravel drive and is sequestered from the road by a thick mature tree line. The road dead- ends at the Potomac River a scant two miles south where Robert E. Lee and his Confederate Army of Northern Virginia forded in retreat, never to fight on northern soil again. THE VIEW SHED - The property enjoys panoramic mountain views and tranquil country vistas. This property is situated on an impressive hill with a mile long view of the approaching road, a major reason Robert E Lee picked this farm as his last retreat encampment in his failed errant to invade the North and win the war. The incredible story of this battle is memorialized in the book "The Battle of Falling Waters 1863: Custer, Pettigrew and the End of the Gettysburg Campaign." THE MILIEU -The property can be accessed via a state road. It is four miles from the town of Williamsport, near RT. 70 and RT. 81 . A right turn onto Falling Waters Road takes you back in time, down a rural street scape punctuated at intervals by large estates, small homes, farms, gaming clubs and hunting cabins. This is the same road once traveled by 10,500 troops on two days 157 years ago. A virtual "who's who" of Generals fought here in a Battle that almost ended the War and where the heir apparent of the Confederate Presidency was mortally wounded in the Donnelly House garden.
