That is quite a fireplace! This house was fun to look at. The home was built in 1842. It is located on nine acres in Abingdon, Virginia. Sadly, I don’t see anything 1842 in this house. But it is a pretty home. The house features a large wrap around porch, hardwood floors, tile floors, a large double sided fireplace and a spacious kitchen. The property has a five car garage and several ponds. Seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 12,134 square feet. $2,995,000
