Large backyard with boxwood garden. Circa 1902 in Virginia. $199,000

November 9, 2022

This is a nice town with quite a few historic homes. Not far from Danville or Smith Mountain Lake. This home was built in 1902. It is located on 1/2 acre in Chatham, Virginia. The home features a covered front porch, hardwood floors, crown molding, baseboards, transom window and built-ins. I am NOT feeling what they did with the kitchen. That could be an amazing kitchen space, but the couch….I don’t know. The home has eight fireplaces and really tall ceilings. There is a large deck and a spacious backyard. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 3,025 square feet. $199,000
