Beautiful stained glass! One acre on the Rockfish River in Virginia. Circa 1920. $319,000

August 10, 2022

This is an interesting structure. Nice stained glass! The Rockfish River is beautiful. This former church was built in 1920. It is located on .97 acres in Shipman, Virginia. That is a beautiful area of Virginia. The former church has original hardwood floors, vaulted ceiling, built-ins, stained glass and original doors with original hardware. Seems like they might be asking a bit too much, but it does have a lot of potential. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms and 2,424 square feet. $319,000

From the Zillow listing:


Historical renovators listen up! This beautiful 1920 church turned residence should be totally restored to it’s original glory! The hardwood floors, woodwork and cathedral ceiling are amazing and the stained glass is gorgeous. With four bedrooms and three and a half baths, there is plenty of room for family and friends. There is also a detached 2-car garage with space for a workshop or storage room. So much potential and right across the road from the Rockfish River’s floating and fishing opportunities. Only 5 miles to Rt. 29 where you can head left to explore Nelson County’s natural beauty and numerous breweries, wineries, cideries and distilleries. Wintergreen Resort is just a short drive and the town of Nellysford offers a fabulous Farmers Market. And it’s a quick trip into Charlottesville and UVA if you go north on Rt. 29. This rare fixer upper can be a showplace. Come and check it out!
