From the Zillow listing:


Circa 1850 historic home located in the quaint town of Bowling Green just on the edge of the commercial district. Although currently being utilized as a residential property, the property is zoned commercial opening up for endless possibilities. Located just 15 minutes to the Spotsylvania VRE station, and centrally located less than 1 hour to Fredericksburg and Richmond. Situated on a 1 2 acre lot with a fully fenced rear yard, the property also includes a 2000 sq ft outbuilding with 200 amp electric service. Many upgrades have been made to this stunning property through the years, but with great care in keeping with the original historic character. Some of the recent upgrades within just the past year include a new furnace, 2 new heaters added to HVAC systems, replacement of sewer pipes, 3 new radiators, 36″ 6 burner Thor convection range ($3700), along with new sink and faucet, new exterior door leading from master to balcony, replacement of front porch decking, and refinishing of the (gorgeous!) 300+ year old first cut Virginia Heart Pine floors throughout the 1st floor that range in size from 12-14 inch planks. The sellers have loved this home for many years and you will immediately feel that love and warmth when entering the beautiful stained glassed entry door, however the time has come for them to be closer to family. With that driven desire they have priced this amazing property to sell. Welcome home!
