“Rustic Lodge”, Circa 1779! My new favorite! Over 13 acres in Virginia. $475,000

May 30, 2019

I think this is my new favorite! “Rustic Lodge” was built in 1779! It is located on 13.58 acres in Troutville, Virginia. There are mountain views from the front porch. The back yard has a 350 year old oak tree. I love the rustic look of the kitchen. The property has a detached two car garage and an old granary. When the owners restored the house, they even used the original nails where possible! Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 3,157 square feet. $475,000

From the Zillow listing:


Purchase a piece of history at the Rustic Lodge.  Built in 1779, this home features the charm of a historic house with the amenities of a modern homestead.  Take in the mountain views from the brick front porch or the rear deck nestled underneath a 350 year old Oak Tree.  Detached 2 car garage and restored granary also on the property. Beautifully restored down to reusing nails from original contruction, part of the home retains the log structure and fireplaces.   Truly must see to believe. Please see supplement for further information on the history of the home
