From the Zillow listing:


Classic, beautiful, affordable. ”The Auburn” is a Sears ”Honor Bilt” home. This stately 100 year-old historic foursquare has beautiful Craftsman detailing, inside and out. It spans four levels, has ten rooms and two porches. Recently remodeled bathrooms and kitchen bring modern convenience without sacrifice to the classic style that makes this home a standout in today’s ”cookie cutter” market.
What I love about the home
This home has FABULOUS flow for entertaining, it can hold up to 20 (seated) just in the living room! We spend a lot of time on the back porch enjoying the view, the shade and the laid-back pace of this sleepy little town. Glasgow is great for those who want to be close to some of the most beautiful places in Virginia: minutes from the Maury and James Rivers, 6 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Glasgow is 25 min. SE of Lexington, 45 min. W of Lynchburg, 45 min. N of Roanoke. This house is move-in ready. Plenty of potential in both the attic and basement to DOUBLE your living space.
