November 15, 2019

This home was built in 1897. It is located on 8.45 acres in Wakefield, Virginia. I’m not sure how I feel about some of the interior. Seems to have been modernized too much. But it is move in ready and for someone who is scared to take on a old house, this is a good alternative. The property has a gated driveway with columns, artesian and irrigation wells, eight stall horse barn, and a fenced in vegetable garden. Four bedrooms, one bathroom, and 2,121 square feet. $305,900
