Love the porch! This sure would be a fun one to take on! This home has been on the market awhile, hoping the auction will help it get the love it needs! The Boswell House was built in 1912. It is located on .51 acres in Chase City, Virginia. The porch columns are gorgeous, and so is the tilework! Wish the pictures were in color so we could get a better idea of the woodwork. There are original hardwood floors and paneled wainscoting. Bet there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting. There are four floors in this home. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 5,403 square feet. Opening bid: $25,000
