January 21, 2022

I like the porch on this house and pretty corbels. This home was built in 1820. It is located on .31 acres in Farmville, Virginia. I’m not too fond of the interior. The home features a covered front porch, original hardwood floors, double front doors, wide baseboards and arched windows. The home is situated within walking distance to local restaurants and shopping. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms and 2,847 square feet. $285,000
