From the Zillow listing:


Have you ever dreamed of owning a piece of Roanoke’s history? This property is it. This home was built by Roanoke’s very own Henry Knight in the late 1890’s. Mr. Knight built a magnificent home for his family with fourteen foot ceilings throughout the home, 4 beautifully designed fireplaces (one being imported, as well as one in the kitchen), a formal den (at one time used as a ladies card room), two sunrooms, a closed in porch (which was used as Mr. Wrights office) with a door leading out to the carriage porch, Kitchen connected to a keepers room, 4 Bedrooms, and a large study located in the back of the house which offers a door leading out to the back. This property is situated on a total of 3.5+/- with multiple out buildings. The late Mr. Tom Waldrep acquired the historic property in 2016 where he planned to restore the well crafted home and bring it back to life as a Bed & Breakfast. Unfortunately though he began renovations the stately home remains largely unfinished.
