From the Zillow listing:


In Lynchburg An Architectural History S. Allen Chambers, Jr. says of 508 Washington Street, …is the finest if all of Lynchburg’s early Georgian Revival houses… Two and a half stories tall, five bays broad…If the exterior is impressive, the interior is almost more so. The entrance hall leads to a transverse stair-hall, which extends the width of the house and opens onto the side porch, The hallways are separated from each other by a screen of lonic columns and pilasters, while the two front rooms are separated…by large sliding doors…creates an extremely open and spacious suite of rooms…probably has more architecture per square foot than any house in Lynchburg. Only 2 families have owned this gem in its 110 years. This is a rare opportunity to own an architectural gem on Diamond Hill. Offering includes the adjoining lot 1412 Madison Street.
