Carlbrook was built in the late 1920s as a country place and retirement home for Imperial Tobacco Company executive Luther E. Carlton and his wife. The imposing Georgian Revival residence, its remarkable collection of landscape features, and associated buildings were built from the designs of Richmond architect Luther P. Hartsook. The house and its dramatic setting have seen few changes since they were built.
