November 8, 2022

I want to see in the little building in the backyard! This house needs work, but it has a lot of potential and this town is going through a revitalization. This home was built in 1918. It is located on .50 acres in Tappahannock, Virginia. The home features a white picket fence, a screened in porch and some original hardwood floors. I bet there are hardwoods underneath the other flooring. Within walking distance to the river. Three bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,779 square feet. $79,000

From the Zillow listing:


This charming gem of a home in historic downtown Tappahannock needs a new owner who loves and cares for her as much as the previous owners. Yesterday’s glorious gardens are awaiting someone who loves lilacs, roses and all the other garden beauties of yesteryear. All surrounded by a white picket fence. The screened porches are perfect for Tidewater Virginia’s Spring, Summer and Fall porch sitting and entertaining. In need of a total restoration, but there’s something in it that brings back memories of earlier days when life was so simple. Downtown Tappahannock is undergoing a revival/restoration and renaissance and your next home could be a part of all that. Walk to the river, enjoy the museum, art gallery, events and farmers market, etc.
