Love that fence! Circa 1810 in Virginia. $299,900

March 24, 2023

I love that wrought iron fence out front! This home was built in 1810. It is located in Petersburg, Virginia. The home features a covered front porch, great front door, hardwood floors, tall ceilings, baseboards, ceiling medallions and floor to ceiling windows. The interior could use some work. It feels stark and not a fan of the kitchen flooring. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 3,402 square feet. $299,900

From the Zillow listing:


HISTORIC ANTEBELLUM HOME IN PETERSBURG’S POPLAR LAWN HISTORIC DISTRICT! This c. 1810 home features handsome woodwork throughout, glistening heart of pine floors, two tall tripartite windows flanking the gorgeous entryway, and a glorious 40X8 front porch! The gracefully curving mahogany handrail and newel post highlights the center hallway with hand-made balusters leading to lower and upper landings. Two formal front rooms feature magnificent chandeliers and intricate medallions. The exterior was professionally painted in September 2022 while the interior was painted in June 2022. A previous renovation of the kitchen retains the “old world charm”, although offering modern conveniences like honed granite and stainless-steel appliances. Three heat pumps with redundant gas furnaces provide comfort year-round and an English basement offers ample storage or potential for alternate living space. The wrought iron fencing encompasses the 100X100 lot which highlights magnolia, fig and cherry trees! This home is 25 minutes to downtown Richmond and only 7 minutes to Fort Lee.
