Clifton is a historic home located near Shadwell, Albemarle County, Virginia. It was built about 1800, and is a large, rambling two-story, five bay, wood frame dwelling. The house has later 19th- and 20th-century Colonial Revival-style additions and alterations. The front facade features a double level porch, added about 1930, and the interior has Federal details. Also on the property are the contributing brick office (c. 1833–1845); the ruins of an early 19th-century spring house; the shaft of a 19th-century stone-lined ice house; an early 20th-century chicken coop and an altered 1920s brick garage. Clifton was built by Congressman and Virginia Governor Thomas Mann Randolph, Jr. (1768–1828). It was part of the never-to-be port of North Milton, a sister port to the now extinct village of Milton directly across the Rivanna River.
