This home has an interesting history! It was dismantled and stored in a warehouse for two years while the current owner looked for land to move it to. The owner then painstakingly reconstructed the home. Love the porches! There are hardwood floors and ceramic tile floors. Some of the ceramic floors are heated. The home is situated atop a mountain with great views. Two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 1,770 square feet. $379,000

From the Zillow listing:


This 1860 historic home once stood in Orange County, VA. It was carefully dismantled and stored in a warehouse for two years while the owner searched for a suitable piece of land on which to rebuild the home. Re-located in the 1990’s, Top Ridge Road in Stanardsville afforded spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mtns as well as the HOA-accessible lake in the valley below. The home was meticulously re-built and the current owner has refined some of its highlights. Featuring hardwood & ceramic tile floors (some heated), this home is a wonderful vacation home for those who wish to escape the city (DC area) or it can be a private locale for someone who desires privacy atop a beautiful mountain. The home encompasses three lots (9.23 acres).
