I think I would change the exterior color, but it does stand out! Built in 1913. Located on 5.75 acres in Appomattox, Virginia. New metal roof with lifetime warranty. Updated plumbing, electric and HVAC. The master bedroom and bathroom have heated floors. The listing says the property has an orchard, but it doesn’t state what type of orchard. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,872 square feet. $259,900

From the Zillow listing:


174 Twin Tunnel is a beautiful mix of something old and something new. This 1913 farmhouse has been updated throughout. New features include hardy board siding, metal roof with lifetime warranty, heating and air system, plumbing, electrical and windows. Walk in through the front door and enjoy the natural light. Continue on into your dining room and kitchen complete with faulted ceilings and fireplace. Master bedroom and bathroom with heated floors are on your main level as well. Take the main staircase lined with the original siding to two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom complete with a cast iron tub. Outside is a 840 sq. ft. workshop with a garage door on each end perfect to pull your tractor through. A 5.75 acre corner lot complete with your own orchard. Owners have taken the time to update this home throughout but have remembered to include period finishes so as not to lose the charm of the original era. Come back home and settle in at 174 Twin Tunnel Lane.
