    Almost a time capsule, including no indoor plumbing. If you want to live more like the pioneers, here’s the perfect opportunity. Great house once it is cleaned up as long as a flipper doesn’t get hold of it and wash it down in a sea of white paint…

    From the leading (historic) photo, I wondered how that could possibly be $475,000 in Culpeper…and then all was revealed. Terrific house, rich in original details, and unspoiled.

    Not cheap, but very nice property and a great project house. (It occurred to me that the little girl on the porch might still be around and chasing folks away – otherwise, how has this been sitting there so long without being vandalized?)

    The best period feature in this suspended-in-time house is the faux graining. (appears to be mimmicking quarter-sawn or “tiger” Oak) When it was well-done, as in this house, it had just as much status as the real thing. Probably fewer than 1% of old houses still have this kind of treatment. Others still have it, but it’s buried under coats of paint and will never be re-discovered. A historic architectural purist could have fun with this place.

    My 1887 W. Grant Whitney house in Payette, Idaho had the faux graining on all of the fir doors. The trim work was fir stained a walnut color. The combo of dark trim around the faux grained golden oak colored doors was a knockout.

    Not to mention the spectacular ornate solid walnut staircase.

    The people I sold it to burned it for the insurance money in 1985. …… 🙁
