1916–1918, Griffin and Wynkoop. c. 1930, entry court and gardens, Charles Gillette, landscape architect. 18285 Blue Ridge Turnpike (VA 231) (2.5 miles north of intersection with U.S. 33)

Visible from the road is the seven-bay brick facade of this extraordinary single-pile Georgian Revival mansion. Griffin and Wynkoop of New York, well known in suburban mansion circles, designed the house for Flora Zinn, whose father owned nearby Cameron Lodge (now burned), one of the state's most impressive houses. Gillette added the granite-paved entry court, gardens, and associated features.
