Beautiful old houses in Petersburg, Virginia! Over 4,000 square feet. $299,950

January 15, 2024

There are some beautiful old houses in Petersburg, Virginia just waiting to be restored. And revitalization is happening there! The realtor says this house was built in 1900. This is an 1870’s house. It is located on .54 acre in Petersburg, Virginia. The house was broken up into apartments and I believe it is currently a duplex. Would be nice to get it back to single family, but a duplex wouldn’t be bad. Live in one side, rent the other. The house has some beautiful and original exterior details. This is a big house! Eight bedrooms, four bathrooms and 4,209 square feet. $299,950
