August 2, 2019

This is the first time this house has ever been on the market! Built in 1858 with an addition in 1879. Located on 17 acres in Monterey, Virginia. There is a spring on the property that provides water for the house. Original hardwood floors and woodwork. The house could definitely use some updating and removal of carpeting and wallpaper. This sure could be a beautiful house though! Five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 4,286 square feet. $450,000

From the Zillow listing:


This is considered one of if not the finest home in Monterey. Part of the house was built in 1858-59 and additions were made around 1879. It is large enough for the entire family. The property includes roughly 17 acres of beautiful woodland that includes the spring that provides water to the house. It is truly a historic property and has never been offered for sale before. Large beautiful rooms, 5 bedrooms, 3 baths.  Large halls, hardwood floors, lovely woodwork, everything you would expect in a older home of this style and quality. You can be in town with the country out your back door. Beautiful views. It has been lovingly cared for but like any property this age it could use some modernization.
