Five acres in the Virginia mountains! Circa 1900. $64,850

August 28, 2020

I have seen this house before and it went off market for awhile. This won’t qualify for traditional financing. This home was built in 1900. It is located on 5.31 acres in Independence, Virginia. This has a lot of potential if it got in the right hands. Would make a nice vacation spot! There are mountain views from the house and a creek runs through the property. There are multiple springs on the property as well. The home has hardwood floors, original staircase, and bead board walls. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 2,116 square feet. $64,900 New price: $64,850

From the Zillow listing:


THIS HOME IS NOT LIVABLE. Buyers will need ALL CASH ONLY to buy it. It is a complete fixer upper. 1900’s Victorian style home sits on 5+ acres on Grayson Co. farm land. Just waiting for the right savvy buyer to gut it and restore her back to her glory days. UNSAFE conditions in many parts of this home. Enter with caution at your own risk. The property lays well and has a beautiful little stream running through it & beautiful mature shade trees. There is a well on the property , condition unknown and there are also active springs. These old homes had high ceilings, stately staircase and foyer, bead boarding, Wide trim, hardwood floors, solid interior and exterior doors and an upstairs balcony on the front of the house. One of the 3 covered porches wraps around the side of the house. This home has no heat system, utilities are off, seller does not know condition of well nor septic. All inspections up to buyer. SOLD AS IS. Condition of Fireplaces UNKNOWN. A true labor of love project.
