Look at the architectural details on that roof! Legend is a concert pianist called this place home. Not for the faint of heart, this one needs a lot of work, but it sure would be cute fixed up! Built in 1898 in downtown Bristol, Virginia. Within walking distance of the country music museum, downtown shops and restaurants. $28,500.

From the Zillow listing:


Roll up your sleeves and get your work gloves on! This 1898 Victorian can be a dream home again. Large windows, spacious rooms, tall ceilings, rap-around porch, amazing woodwork, and period architectural ornamentation make this home very unique. Situated on a corner lot, the views of downtown are lovely. Very close to the Country Music Museum, festivals, and downtown shops. Legend has it, a concert pianist lived here in the early 1900s, and had stylish Victorian gatherings in the grand parlors. Let this charmer breathe new life, again, with your vision and creativity.
