    I love an old farm…I also found a old Zillow listing for it with pictures of it furnished, and before some interior changes were made, here: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/7981-Indian-Rd-Gloucester-VA-23061/2091623608_zpid/? . My only concern on this house is that from every exterior picture I see, it doesn’t seem to have a regular foundation, the entire house appears to sit on support blocks. My grandmother’s sister lived for decades in an old farmhouse on blocks; in the winter, she had the coldest floors south of Santa Claus, and I couldn’t count the times she called us over to get some “varmint” out from under her house! Once, it was a bobcat…not the possum we were expecting, LOL…

      Mike, I enjoyed seeing the older photos. I prefer the yellow and white that it was more than having so much white as now. I really like the way it was furnished. It’s a charming house in a beautiful setting. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have so much property — I live in a very crowded city. Interested hearing about the cold floors in your relative’s house.

    Gorgeous home and property. The home is delightfully simple, as a farmhouse would have (likely) been. Like many of you, I was nervous when I read “taken down to the studs,” but I think it looks wonderful with lots of originality! Bravo homeowners.

    Gloucester is a charming small town near the end of the Middle Neck on the Chesapeake Bay, between the York and Rappahannock Rivers. This charmer is typical of the local architecture–makes me homesick for Virginia!

    This isn’t my favorite style but I’d move right into this house–lovely in its simplicity and such a pretty landscape!

    1846 Gothic/Greek Revival

    This house is pretty much an exact duplicate of my house, at least on the exterior (I have side and top lights around my front door). The date on mine is 1846.

      The south lagged behind in vernacular houses but I wondered if this may have been slightly older than 1916 although not as old as 1846. Would be fun to research the history of this place, the setting is fantastic but the house itself is quiet and comfortable looking.

    “We’ll paint it any color you want…as long as it’s WHITE!”

  11. That kitchen looks like my great grandmother’s, only it would need an additional wood cook stove. Gramotley (what we called her) refused to cook on the electric stove, so it sat unused next to the wood burning one. I love this house!
