Pretty home! Circa 1900 in Virginia. $295,000

March 1, 2024

This is a pretty house! They give a build date of 1930. Looks older to me, maybe 1900. The house is on .44 acre in South Hill, Virginia. Some of the flooring choices are unfortunate and I would try to reverse that. The home features a nice covered front porch, some hardwood floors, nice staircase, stained glass, chair rails and crown moulding. It is located on a street where an old school was turned into nice apartments and a restaurant. Seems like revitalization is happening which is always a good sign. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms and 2,690 square feet. $295,000
