October 18, 2023

Don’t judge a book by its cover! Interior surprised me! The home was built in 1880. It is located on .76 acres in Atkins, Virginia. The home features a covered front porch, exposed log walls, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, stained glass windows, hardwood floors, crown moulding and chair rails. This is the first time this home has been on the market in 100 years. I would try to tone down some of the wallpaper, but this is a great house. Three bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,622 square feet. $149,000
