April 3, 2019

I love this house and the history! Really love the price! This home was built in 1737. The log portion of the home is the original part. It was used by a church as a home for traveling parsons. The log parsonage section has wide plank flooring  and original hand hewn exposed logs from the 1730’s. The log parsonage was expanded on in the 1900’s. There is a large sun room that overlooks the large yard. Located on 1.75 acres in Madison Heights, Virginia. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,501 square feet. $128,900

From the Zillow listing:

With original wide-plank flooring from circa 1730s America in the log room, what stories could this home tell? The log room (hand hewn, with an ax!) with fireplace is perfect for a dining room or sitting room, originally used by a local church for traveling parsons. Expanded in mid-1900s, including a huge 20×12 sunroom that overlooks the private side yard. With a formal dining room, eat-in kitchen, main-level bedroom, plus 3 living areas on the main level, 2 with fireplaces — your family will have plenty of space to spread out.
