Historic House Listings

Circa, 1845. Over five waterfront acres in Virginia. $320,000

June 26, 2018

Built in 1845 and named after the gentle breezes the property has even on hot days, Mount Airy is located in Harborton, Virginia. From every window there are views of Pungoteague Creek. There are four working fireplaces and the listing says, “one may even tell the story of Mount Airy being built”. Really curious what that means! One part of the listing says 5.6 acres, another part says 3.6, not sure which is correct. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,288 square feet. $320,000

From the Zillow listing:


This beautiful telescoping Circa 1845 House is named Mount Airy. The name came about that even on the hottest days, there is always a gentle breeze.

This Grand Lady of a house on 3.60 Acres with Crepe Myrtle, Holly, Magnolia, Mahogany, Japanese Pines, and lets not forget Mrs. Martin’s rose bushes enhance the yard and grounds.
