I like this house! Love the street view of it! And you can’t go wrong with apple trees and mountain views! This home was built approximately 1832-1834. It is located on 4.11 acres in Rose Hill, Virginia. The home features original hardwood floors, stained glass, wainscoting, picture rails and wide baseboards. This home has quite a history. Built for Captain John Blair McClin and his wife, Mary Elizabeth Bales. John was a captain in the Confederate Army. He was capture and held captive in a mansion in Monte Vista. He escaped and hid in the attic of his home. An enslaved person revealed where he was and John was capture again. They raised nine children in this home.
