  1. Angelica has a Twilight Zone-like quality, in a GOOD way. The town has a magic about it unlike any other place I’ve ever been. Nothing has changed very much in the last 150 years or so; the historic architecture and surrounding countryside are both superb (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OT7Q7vQb5I). On top of that, Angelica is famous around the region for its dense, chewy salt-rising bread, and for a pancake restaurant that is only open for a few short weeks each year during maple syrup production.

    This house dominates ‘Park Circle,’ the village focal point. The architecture reminds me of Ashland Plantation in Louisiana. I wonder if there could be a connection?

    • Thank you for adding the youtube video. It does look so beautiful. Looking at the street view it looks like the house next door has some type of sign in the front yard. Do you know what it says? Is it a private home? Thank you.

    • Thx for the video, CharlesB. And the other info. Two houses of worship right next to each other! Have not seen that before. It does seem like a town that time forgot.

  2. The house was built for a tailor named Theodore Haight, who sold it unfinished in 1850 to the family of Samuel Hartshorn, a carpenter who may have been the actual builder.

    A really fine house that was used as a restaurant called Magnolia House. I don’t know why there’s no photo of the great early carriage house:

    Here’s a shaky walk-through video that shows the layout.

  3. It’s certainly a beautiful and appears to be a well kept home. So why is the price so low? That’s low even for this part of VA. Also, don’t all those post make it difficult to waltz around that “ballroom”?

  4. Is the last picture a side view of the home? Because if its not it looks different than the first picture front of the home. Thank you!

  5. I was wondering at the price too. Nothing is said about the state of the roof or plumbing, etc. so maybe it needs some updating there? I think, from the one photo, that the kitchen needs a total makeover to modernize things there-I hope the next owner does something in keeping with the style and age of the house. That ballroom-is that linoleum tile I see?! I bet there’s more of that great hardwood flooring in that room. I love the fence! Great to see that apparently that’s been kept up and isn’t falling over or missing sections. I love this house and it just might be worth the drive to Angelica! Did you know the town is named for Alexander Hamilton’s sister in law? Her husband was a major investor in the area when it was being settled, and I’m not sure, but they may have lived there.

  6. I fell in love with this house 3 years ago when they put it in EBAY of all things. It was about 30,000 more than this back then. I live near San Francisco so the move would be a shock to me considering the winter pictures. The carriage house is quite nice too and has a nice big cupola on it. The taxes are not too bad in this part of the state
