From the Zillow listing:


Your home in the country awaits! 1920’s farm house in original condition is waiting for you to give it some TLC! This home has 3 bedrooms and one bath, a small kitchen and a den, which could be made into a dining room, and rests on a level 10.03 acre parcel of land. According to family lore, the original 3 rooms of the house were moved to the present location in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s from their original location by the creek across the road. The rest of the home was built around 1920. An interesting feature of this property is the country store, known back in the day as “Skinner’s Store”, which still stands out front. This is the perfect location for your hobby farm with room for chickens and horses. Property fronts on 2 paved roads and is close to Hampden-Sydney College and Farmville. More photos to follow….
