From the Zillow listing:


Be part of the revival of Chase City, a historic and growing town located in lovely southern Virginia with this ca. 1912 historic home located in the heart of town. Sitting on over an acre of land, the renovation has already begun and there are original features still present: 8 gorgeous fireplaces, Philippine Mahogany wood, a custom built curving staircase, and over 5,400 sq ft with additional space in the basement and 3rd floor/attic totaling about 10,000 sq ft in all. The spacious porches would be perfect to sip your favorite beverage and enjoy the slow life. Walk to downtown shops and restaurants or over to the beautiful 6-acre garden at MacCallum More Museum & Gardens. That said, significant work is still ahead to restore this beauty to its full potential. Most recently used as commercial space, there are 10 potential bedrooms and 8 potential bathrooms (plus 2 in the basement), but with a vision, investment, and hard work, you can make this home an incredible B&B, luxury hotel, or whatever you can imagine. These opportunities don’t come along every day – take a look today! Note: won’t qualify for bank financing. Seller financing is available with 20% down, 5 year term at 5%.
