White Bridge Farms

House_5

Levi Coe, Sr. built the oldest part of this home circa 1787 on a twelve acre property.

In 1832, his son Levi Jr. inherited the home and enlarged the original property to 300 acres. It was he who added the Greek Revival elements to the house and named it Cloverdale Farm.

Among the notable Greek Revival details are the recessed panels on the pilasters and double fascia board with stringcourse molding and the horizontal beams in the entry. The south parlor has distinctive door surrounds with eared moldings and beveled frames. The newel post is original to the house.

Also of historic significance are the maple trees lining the front of the house, which are said to have been planted by Civil War veterans.

The glass greenhouse on the south elevation is a modern addition. The current home is 4,720 square feet. The property includes an in-ground pool, bath house, tennis courts, livestock arena, two barns and a 1920s office building.
