    Lovely house. Wish I could move. I’d want to buy it. I am surprised that so much original plaster has been removed from the walls. It is so difficult to make modern gypsum board look like plaster because it does not easily or smoothly conform to old studs.

    “An English basement is an apartment on the lowest floor of a building, generally a townhouse or brownstone, which is partially below and partially above ground level and which has its own separate entrance from the rest of the building.” I looked it up because I was unfamiliar with the phrase. In 1803 Virginia I would think that enslaved people lived and worked in that basement. Very interesting house.

    This is a beautiful house in a great location. So many old houses are right on the road. Very interesting basement. I count 3 fireplaces in the basement alone.
