“Glenwood Manor”, Circa 1889. On 10 acres in Virginia. $249,900

March 24, 2022

Love the property and the setting for this one. “Glenwood Manor” was built in 1889. It is located on ten acres in Brookneal, Virginia. The home has been a bit over-renovated, but the land is great. Maybe trying to add in some architectural elements from homes of that time period would help. It is a bit of a blank slate. There appears to be an old outbuilding on the property. The house has been updated with a new roof, electric and plumbing. Great old chimney! Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,400 square feet. $249,900

This turn of the century farmhouse is situated on a flat to gently rolling 10 acre parcel in a quiet rural setting. Approximately three acres are cleared. A natural spring and creek, poplar, oak, and maple trees make up the remaining seven acres. Many updates have been made over the last 10 years including: wiring, roof,2-zone HP, windows, vinyl siding, re-rocked chimney and updated bathrooms. The main floor features a spacious eat-in kitchen, laundry room/pantry, family room with wood stove, main floor full bathroom and a den or main floor bedroom with decorative FP. The second floor has a 22×13 master suite with walk in tile shower and walk in closet, two additional bedrooms, and a quiet sitting area overlooking the adjoining farms. Although the house is in the country, the amenities of small town living are within a fifteen minute drive. (The property is priced to leave room for some needed cosmetic improvements)
