    Well some creative types definitely live here. Did you notice the sideways door being used as a mantle/fireplace-um-thingy?

    How can this only be worth 110,000.00?
    It is a gorgeous home!

    Quite a house. Seems lonely all set back on that huge lot by itself! That pop of color in the kitchen at the expense of the fireplace surround/mantel hurts my eyes a bit, but most homes in that price range are falling down. What is that over the fireplace in photo #8 ?

    Nice house. I would have to repaint over all the dark paint colors though.

    Charming. A false band in the exterior colors, but it breaks up the blue nicely and emphasizes the length of this rambling house. The interior colors could well be original; the Victorians liked strong ones.
    That kitchen wall is not deep enough for a flue. I would just remove the fake fireplace.
    Is that enough porch for you folks? Warm summer nights in North Carolina.

    Does the bed come with it? Beautiful!! I’d live here, change the exterior colors. 🙂

    Henry G. Cooper (1853-1931) was the son of a prosperous local merchant and lifetime Oxford resident. After graduating from Washington & Lee U., he took a job at the First National Bank in town, worked there 50 years, and was involved in church and community affairs. The house was built for Henry and his bride Emma Julia Horner; they raised their 10 children here and never moved. The home passed to daughter Daisy, who earned a law degree and had a limited practice as she raised a family of her own. Daisy Strong Cooper Hall died at 91 in 1996.

    This is a lovely house with much of its original content intact, awaiting an owner sympathetic to its history and period details.

    So many great original features still intact here!! I love the navy painted exterior. I would get rid of the yellow racing stripe. I am all for multiple color scheme victorians, but i have not seen this done before.
    Notice the home depot light fixture in the entry hall…just goes to show how an old house needs old lighting or it just doesnt work!
