c. 1810; later alterations. 6877 Brickland Rd.

Brick was so rarely employed for early Lunenburg residences that when the Nebletts used it for their house, they named their plantation Brickland. Sterling Neblett Sr. was a physician and a member of the Virginia House of Delegates. Situated just east of Kettlesticks Creek in a handsome parklike setting and preceded by a driveway lined with cedar trees, the two-story, five-bay Federal house has several architectural features not usually found in the county. Interior-end chimneys rise from parapeted side walls with elbow gables, and wooden panels separate the first- and second-story windows. The entrance with double doors is sheltered by a four-columned pedimented portico. Dating from a Colonial Revival remodeling, an elaborate pediment, broken at the bottom and supported by pilasters, surmounts the original entrance of the one-story wing.
