Italianate in Virginia. Circa 1846. On 294 acres. $2,224,797

April 21, 2022

This could be really beautiful with some cosmetic work! The home was built in 1846. It is located on 294 acres in Somerset, Virginia. The home features a covered front porch, hardwood floors, crown molding, double front doors and wainscoting. Would be nice to take the carpeting out. Good news is it has been protecting hardwood floors that are most likely underneath. The home has an english basement and a rear porch with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 3,324 square feet. $2,224,797
