From the Zillow listing:


Fantastic Opportunity to renovate a c.1883 farmhouse on 7 acres in North Garden. Centrally located within the quaint hamlet of North Garden, just minutes off Route 29, close to the Crossroads Shopping center (and Dr Ho’s Humble Pie), and an easy 15-minute drive to Charlottesville. The house sits on a hill surrounded by huge oak trees. A worthy candidate for a quality renovation, the home appears to have solid bones, and has vintage charm with pine floors, original doors, staircase handrail, country kitchen etc. A broad front porch overlooks North Garden Ln, and the south branch of the Hardware River, which forms one border of the property. The 7 acres consists of 2 tax parcels (5.25 acres and 2 acres), and the larger parcel may have a division right (needs to be confirmed by purchaser through Albemarle County), all of which lends value and flexibility to the offering. Private, yet very convenient setting. A rare opportunity for a new owner to create the old house of their dreams in a popular area of Albemarle County.
