Important Historic

Mid-Town Sale

Annesdale (c.1855)

1325 Lamar


        This Italian Villa mansion was built by a Dr. Samuel Mansfield, a wholesale druggist, probably as a wedding present for the wife he married in 1855.  In 1869 Robert Brinkley bought it as a wedding gift for his daughter, Annie Overton Brinkley, who married Col. Robert Bogardus Snowden. The two-hundred-acre estate was named Annesdale, pronounced "Annie's Dale," in her honor.

 

        Architecturally, the house, with its square tower, bracketed cornice, round-arched porch, and asymmetrical plan, was absolutely up-to-date for the mid-1850's. Although the name of its designer is unknown, details of the exterior and elements of the plan quite possibly were derived from a "Norman Villa" designed by the Philadelphia architect Samuel Sloane and published in his book, The Model Architect, in 1852.  Sloane designed one of the South's great houses, the Arabian-Nights fantasy of Longwood, at Natchez, in 1859, which was based on "An Oriental Villa" in The Model Architect.



  • Parking permitted on Lamar (South Side only) & Snowden Circle   (no parking allowed in the property)

  • $5.00 Admission Fee Per Person (portion of the proceeds to benefit The Church Health Center as requested by the family)



The contents of Annesdale encompasses 5 +  continuous generations of the same family.



Rare opportunity to visit, enjoy, and purchase wonderful treasures from this fantastic home!!!
