Wow! This is pretty amazing! Built by an attorney for his daughter, a descendant of Pocahontas. This house is almost 7,000 square feet! The home was built in 1875. It is located on 1.66 acres in Chatham, Virginia. That’s a cute town not far from Danville and pretty close to Smith Mountain Lake. There are so many original details in this house, but not seeing much of a kitchen. At this price, who cares, make a kitchen to suit your tastes. The home features original hardwood floors, large parlors, original mantels, vintage light fixtures, pocket doors and crown molding. Pretty cool how one parlor has two fireplaces. Probably used as a ballroom back in the day. There are 11 fireplaces in the home! Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 6,726 square feet. $169,900
