Rocking chair front porch and beautiful gardens! You will see two kitchens. For years it housed two families that were related. Built in 1901 in Halifax, Virginia. Located on almost one acre. Five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 4,026 square feet. $189,000 New price: $149,000

From the Zillow listing:


REDUCED $50,000! Perfectly livable in current condition & unique because, for years, it accommodated 2 separate families who were related & who shared upstairs & downstairs foyers. It currently retains 2 kitchens, & if you see “senior family member quarters” in your future, or if your empty nest seems to be filling back up, you can easily do a remodel to take care of those needs. The following floor plan remodeling suggestions would turn the home back into a single family home. The spacious foyer has left & right parlors- & since the one on the right has a closet, it is ideal for a 1st-floor bedroom as there is a full bath at the far end of the foyer. The “dining room” behind it would be a nice den, & the current kitchen, a great master bath to serve a possible 1st-floor master bedroom in the back room w/ fireplace that would also have its own screened porch. The left side parlor has bay windows & is joined by a dining room w/ china cabinet & kitchen with a room behind perfect for a cheerful breakfast room which also has a full bath you may want to convert to the laundry room. Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms & 2 full baths. Lots of fireplaces, a handsome stairway, & 10′ ceilings.
