Sabine Hall is a historic home located in Warsaw, Richmond County, Virginia. It was built between 1738 and 1742, and is a two-story, brick and stone, Georgian style manor house. It is flanked by later 1-1/2-story brick wings. The interior features a fully paneled central hall measuring 18 by 48 feet (5.5 by 14.6 m), and a carved walnut stairway. The house overlooks six gardened terraces and the Rappahannock River. It was built by noted planter Landon Carter (1710-1778).[4]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1969, and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1970.[3]
