    Another fabulous sink alert in the seventh to last picture! See it, Ross?

    I love that servant’s bell with the directional pointer for which room requires service. Those were the days.

    This would make a fantastic bed and breakfast site. If only I were 20 years younger. And rich enough to buy this.

    This area is historical, I have lived here all my life and If you like the old historical homes Staunton is a great place to be… not to grown up and tons of little shops downtown.

    How long do you think it would take to strip off that white paint? LOL The kitchen is unique, looks like an enlarged butler pantry because it is so long and narrow. The drive to the front puts to mind, a grand party and having all the guests driving up that long drive to the welcoming steps to the front entrance.

      About the white paint: It usually takes approximately 8 months to a year per room to strip the paint and restore the woodwork correctly when it is fairly flat and simple like this house. If this were an ornate mid century victorian, double that for a 15×16 room.

        NY (house is in VA), NY

        So you just need to hire a team of 25 people working on it to get it done in less than a year. Sounds totally doable!

    I not only felt content with the inner house but the 9+ acres are amazing too. What a special place to grow up in. I wish I had this as my family home.

    I have to disagree that it takes that long to strip the woodwork in room . If the room is not overly large like 20 x 20. I can get it done in a weekend provided there isn’t 20 coats.

    Oh gosh darn, Kelly! Another gorgeous home for me to consider. Of course I’d have to win the lottery first of all.

    It looks like someone went a bit nuts removing doors from many cabinets and built-ins throughout the house, perhaps in a misguided attempt at “updating.” Hopefully they are still stored somewhere on the property.

    The dark gasoliers are mid-Victorian in age, and rather rare. Just a few of the treasures preserved here.

    I can’t begin to tell you how much I love this house. It’s very similar to the house I grew up in. Majestic!
