Historic House Listings

This is a beautiful home and that price! It has been on and off the market for awhile now. Makes me wonder what work is needed. This was built in 1852. It is located on .75 acres in Martinsburg, West Virginia. The listing states that all of the main areas have been restored and maintained. Really curious what the other areas look like. I’m thinking maybe that back addition is where the issues are. Ten bedrooms, six bathrooms, and 5,278 square feet. $225,000
