One of a picturesque row of similar structures, this home has been divided into up and down duplex apartments. A previous owner brought this project home nearly to completion with new kitchens and new baths, but with a choice of interior colors that are far too dark. By renting half, this one will pay you to live there.

Dating from the early to mid-1890s, this home was built on a portion of the homestead of Mr. W.S. Patton. Presumably this home and its neighbors to the south were built as income property for Drs. Sumter and Franklin George. Both men were esteemed local physicians. Residents have included music professor Robert S. Phifer. It was Phifer who persuaded the father of famed composer Frederick Delius to continue his music studies.

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. But it’s not just the architecture. Located adjacent to our city’s flourishing downtown River District, the Old West End is a community of friendly people with a passion for preservation and restoration. Make your home in our welcoming neighborhood and our just-right city. Come join us.

    The vertical massing emphasizing a tall house on a narrow lot is visually interesting. The interior seems a blend of old and new but at the low offering price there should be plenty of room for updates. (or returning details to their period appearances) At least from the outside this could be a cute house with some period colors.
