This two-story wood clad single-family residence is an example of the Folk Victorian style. Presently configured as two apartments, the building features a front porch supported by turned columns. The original structure consists of a stair corridor along the right side of the building with 4 main rooms adjacent to the corridor. The rear addition currently consists of a bathroom, kitchen, and a bedroom on the first floor and a bathroom, kitchen, and balcony on the second floor of the house. According to an architect's report (available to prospective purchasers), the second floor bath and balcony are structurally unstable and must be removed. The home’s return from a duplex to a single-family residence strongly recommended.

Rehab and occupancy covenants required. Brokers protected.

This property is located in the Old West End (OWE) National Historic District. One of five National Register districts in Danville, Virginia, the OWE boasts the finest and most concentrated collection of Victorian and Edwardian architecture anywhere in the Commonwealth.

    So much potential! I like the small footprint and little porch.

    It appears the newel post is partially imbedded in the the plaster? Never seen that before.

      And so cheap I could practically just put it on my Visa card! There’s a lot of neat old houses on the street, too.

      I doubt that wall against the stair is original. Put there when it was turned into a duplex, most likely. Lots of work, but there are some mantles there and looks like original windows. Maybe live in half while fixing the other?

      You’d probably have to put it on a CC, I don’t think they bother with mortgages this small!

    AWW, such abuse for such a darling little button. There’s hope!

    Is there such a thing as a “parts” house? Is auto restoration, they are always buying “parts cars” I love all the mantles and stair wood. And of course the floor wood and exterior wood. The raw materials must be much more than 20 thou. Historic District probably puts a halt on the idea. I would buy a different home in Danville and buy this one to use the parts to fix up the other.

    Can anyone tell me why there are so many homes for sale in Danville’s OWE? Tia.

      Paul is part of the Friends of Old West End group and a reader. I told him any homes they are working to save, send them my way. (Or maybe you were asking why so many are for sale? Which I do not know the answer to that.) 🙂

    Danville is a small southern town. Not a great economy. Not many jobs available.

    It would be a big improvement just cleaning it. Then start the demo. Then clean it again! Then go from there.

    I’ll bet that when the wall inserted into the front hall is removed, and the staircase exposed, the house will look very different. How lucky that when the house was chopped in half, they were too lazy to remove the railing to the second floor.
