Diamond in the Rough! Circa 1908. Five acres in Virginia. $129,000

February 15, 2024

This house looks like a diamond in the rough! About 30 minutes to Smith Mountain Lake, which is beautiful! The house was built in 1908. It is located on five acres in Gretna, Virginia. The house features a covered front porch and hardwood floors. The house definitely needs work. The cardboard window encasements are a bit odd. The acreage and the price make this a very doable house. There are a couple of outbuildings on the property. Four bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,728 square feet. $129,000
