What I love about the home
Unique historic home originally occupied by Dr, Paul J. Carrington and his wife, who was related to Patrick Henry–his home nearby. House decends level by level with original thick plank stairs (numbered by roman numerals) and charming nooks and crannys. Updated kitchen, JenAir appliances and skylites, beamed great room with skylites on nearly 2 acres. Across from 300 acre estate with great forged iron gates–idyllic. Original plank floors. View of 300 acre estate from bedroom windows offer glimpses of horses grazing and foxes in field. Close to theater (the Prizery) and two 4 star restaurants and charming shops. Google History of Old Halifax Va or History of Mt Laurel VA or search Dr. Paul J. Carrington, Mt. Laurel VA. Write owner by snail mail if interested.
