September 5, 2022

This could be a really rewarding project! The previous owners had a terminal illness and left the home as is. I am assuming people have also been going inside and ransacking it. The house was built in 1867. It is located on 2.8 acres in Crewe, Virginia. The home features a covered front porch, hardwood floors, wainscoting, double front doors and beautiful exterior trim. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,642 square feet. $112,500

From the Zillow listing:


This romantic, secluded Classic Colonial Home is on 2.8 lush, forested acres & was built in 1867… just two years after the final Virginia Civil War Battle of nearby Sayler’s Creek. Obtaining National Historic Landmark designation is possible! There is so much storied history in this architectural marvel, adjacent to the “Old Nottoway Antiques” store & the Nottoway Courthouse. Due to a sudden terminal illness the former owners left this home in unkempt condition. However, after a cleanup and a quality restoration, you can create a dream home with authentic style and true historical character. Four large bedrooms, 2-BA, high ceilings, bi-level living spaces, exposed wood beams, real wood cabinetry, large picture windows, exposed brick and so much more! The kitchen area can become a big classic, gourmet kitchen. The formal dining room is vast and it can also be a fantastic den or family room. A landscaping plan can transform the property too! The location is superb and close to route 460. The metal one-car, detached garage is a big bonus w/ a solid concrete floor, storage and entry door.
