A lot of original character still left in this house! Owner would like to sell this home furnished. Looks like some nice antiques. Buttercup Plantation was built in 1825. It is located on three acres in Long Island, Virginia. The home features double front porches, hardwood floors, hand carved mantels and wide baseboards. The old summer kitchen is pretty cool! Would love that as office space. There is the old blacksmith shop on the property. There is also a koi pond and a detached building with hot tub. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,298 square feet. $489,900 New price: $399,000
