Such a stately looking home! This house was built in 1908. It is located on 2.35 acres in Fort Defiance, Virginia. The exterior trim is gorgeous! The home has original hardwood floors, pocket doors, solid wood doors with original hardware, and vintage tiled bathrooms. The kitchen could use some work though. Love the old barn on the property! The home has a newer metal roof and it was re-plastered. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,975 square feet. $375,000

From the Zillow listing:


Built at the turn of the century, this 1908 stately Georgian is a study in craftsmanship. Lovingly maintained throughout the years, the home’s intact original features include functioning pocket doors, sturdy built-ins, pedestal sinks, cast-iron clawfoot tub, honeycomb bathroom tile, & stunning hardwood floors throughout. One of only 5 families to own the home, the most recent owners have modernized the house extensively, including updated electric (2008), standing seam metal roof (2009), blow- in insulation, new furnace (2014- can use waste oil), & replastering throughout. The massive, 2 story reinforced barn would be ideal for as a venue for hosting well- distanced events. Quick access to Rt. 11 and I-81 make this an ideal vacation rental. This one- of- a- kind property is a historic gem
