Love the stonework! TWO houses on FIVE acres in the Virginia mountains. $345,000

December 26, 2023

I love all of the stonework! This listing includes two houses! You could live in the smaller one while working on the larger house. The Lea House was built in 1900. It is located on five acres in Massies Mill, Virginia. The main house features a covered front porch, hardwood floors, baseboards and crown moulding. The second house has been updated and is livable. Close to orchards, wineries, fishing and waterfalls. $345,000

From the Zillow listing:


New pricing! Stay in your adorable, refinished 1 BR, 1 BA cottage while restoring “The Lea House” to it’s original spendor. The potential here is endless. Located in Massies Mill, just a stroll away from the Tye River, is this stunning, 3256 sq. ft., majestic, 1890 Virginia Farmhouse. It will need a total rehab but still retains the hardwood flooring in much of the house as well as some handsome woodwork. The roof is new as well as the windows. There is an engineered septic system for 5 bedrooms and a very prolific well. The stonewalls and hardscaping are absolutely unparalled. There are 5 +/- acres with a fenced area for the “farm goats” and an idyllic garden spot down by the stream with cistern watering available. The yard is graced with lots of mature trees and plantings and towered over by the large, elegant magnolia in front of the home. Firefly fiber optic internet is in place. Minutes to some of the counties best orchards, Tye River fishing, Crabtree Falls and the AT for outstanding hiking. Short jaunts to world class breweries, cideries, wineries and distilleries. And Wintergreen Resort is just up the road for skiing, golf and tennis. A one of a kind offering to restore to it’s former glory and make it yours!
