November 19, 2021

Up on the auction block! Love the little waterfall and the stream fed pond. This home was built in 1911. It is located on 52 acres in Dinwiddie, Virginia. The price suggested is the opening bid on the property. The interior is kind of like a time capsule. Would be nice to see underneath the carpeting. The home features french doors and a nice staircase. There is a covered front porch and a balcony. There are several outbuildings on the property and a 1.7 acre pond. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms and 3,173 square feet. $250,000
