Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Glenfiddich House is certainly a residence with a storied past. Built in 1740, the Colonial home (once known as Harrison Hall) served as headquarters for the Confederate army as well as a temporary hospital during the Civil War, but its greatest claim to fame may be that it's the site where, in 1862, General Robert E. Lee planned the Confederate invasion of Maryland, which ended in the tide-turning Battle of Antietam. Located in Leesburg, Virginia, the one-acre property is about 33 miles from Washington, D.C. Inside, the home features a formal dining room with pocket doors that open to the living room, a spacious kitchen, and a family room with a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace. There are eight other fireplaces throughout the home. A spacious covered porch offers a place to relax and take in the verdant views. The estate also includes a 2,500-square-foot carriage house and stables with a 2,500-square-foot flexible space on the second floor.
