Love the porch on this house! The gazebo is cool. The house was built in 1898. It is located in Blackstone, Virginia.

The house features a large covered front porch, tall ceilings, hardwood floors, chair rails, solid wood doors with original hardware and a claw foot tub. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 3,376 square feet. $275,000
