    One of the last great wrought iron fences!

      I completely agree about the fence! I would take this house just for that I think. The plus is all the great unremuddled parts inside. Gorgeous.

      Would be great if the new owner was purist-ish and decided that the RAD Victorian Aesthetic Period fence was all wrong for this Colonial-ish looking house and decided to rip it out and sell it – CHEAP – TO ME. Heheheh. Likely…

        Or the new owner will be someone like me who will stand outside with a pitch fork, menacing people who get too near my gorgeous, historically inaccurate fence. “I don’t care if it’s not right! DON’T TOUCH IT!!!!”

    I agree about the fence, it’s outstanding. This is a beautiful home if the style is appealing to you, and the street view is nice as well.

    I like the way the railing curves over the stair in the second floor hall. I like the beautifully gated iron fence outside which leads to a herringbone brick walk and beautiful entrance. The doors with nice looking hardware on either side of the front door look like they can’t be very deep. I doubt they are false doors and I do like using every inch of space. From the pictures, it looks like the den with beautiful panelling and apparently bookshelves only on either side of the fireplace is the room that is described as the library. To me a library has many more shelves. For all I know, since there is only one photo of that room, there could be other shelves that were built in at the same time as the room was paneled, but I tend to doubt it. If it did, I think that there would be more pictures. The cupboard with the arched doors has the right angles up the sides for it to be a corner cupboard in a niche. So few rooms have enough pictures to get a sense of the layout and condition of the house. By pointing my camera in the right way I could take pictures in my total house that needs a total rehab to make it look like it doesn’t need work. If I was looking for a house and lived in this area, I would definitely want to see this one. As a house dreamer, I want to see a lot more of it on line.

    This is one of the few Colonial revival homes of this era that actually looks Colonial. Most are more like Queen Annes in drag. I would buy this place in a heartbeat if my life took to this part of the country. Worth every penny.

    Lovely Colonial Reival showing a very authentic interpretation of the colonial period. This appreciation of authenticity became popular in the late stages of the revival from the mid 20s up until WWll. I wonder if the date on this listing is correct. To me it looks more like 1938 than 1898. Fine home for certain.

    This house is awesome! If it were only in Georgia and not Virginia! I previously owned a 1939 brick Colonial Revival home and agree that the more authentic interpretations were mid 20s thru the 30s.

    I love this generally, and the funny toilet seat covers make me smile.

    I want this one. I know the pictures are probably hiding some trouble areas, but I really don’t care. The entry way, stairs, and chandelier got me to pack my bags, but the threat of a luxurious library and a brick kitchen is what will make me stay.

    The fence is just a dream.

    Side note, when looking at the street view, I zoomed straight down to the end of the street. There is a fun looking house hanging out down there.
