Across from the Sunshine Cottage! Circa 1800’s in Danville, Virginia. $35,000

March 10, 2020

This house is located across from my Sunshine Cottage! This is a huge house at 4,000 square feet. We have gone inside this home and got kind of lost. The rooms keep going! Currently set up as a four unit home. Would be best going to a duplex or a single family home. $35,000. As with any home in the Old West End, make them an offer! To see this house and others, just visit their website!

From the Old West End website:


The house is set on an unusual triangular lot at the intersection of Chestnut and Pine streets. 125 Chestnut Street was built in the third quarter of the nineteenth century, like most of its neighbors. It began as a two-story center-passage-plan house facing Pine Street. That façade features a central, two-story, one-bay porch with a pediment roof and slender, chamfered square post/columns with molded capitals. The original rooms in this section have molded trim, tall square baseboards, and (on the main floor) slate mantels with ornamental veining and incused decoration. The Chestnut Street façade displays several additions made after 1900. The hipped roof of those additions has a porch along the southwest side. The mantel in the rear room on the first floor is Italianate, with applied decorative panels, while the front room has a simple Greek-style pilaster mantels.
