A destination for the historian, a dream for the gardener, and a delight for the connoisseur of old houses, the William J. Jones House has stories to tell and room for them all. Built in three stages between 1815 and early in the last century, the 6,078 square foot house now includes five bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, and a dizzying array of highly usable spaces both inside and spread across 2.5 acres of lawns and gardens. Rich in period details, the rooms and spacious halls flow in a way that invites entertaining. Two antebellum staircases connect the main two floors while the 2,026 square foot walk-out basement is reached by a single staircase from the center hall. Because the house was moved to its present location in 1976 it rests upon a modern foundation clad in period brick. Only a mile from I-95 and 35 minutes from downtown Richmond, the Petersburg address belies the country character of this hidden enclave. Greatly improved and lavishly cared for, this distinctive property conveys "As Is."

      no argument there for sure, that really is a gorgeous listing, such character and space, and what old mansion would not benefit from 2.5 acres. I was just imagining the yard for my dogs when I came to that final listing pic, lol. A treasure for sure.

    A beautiful house! I’d even keep a lot of the furnishings if possible. Don’t think I’d want to clean all of those baths, but the library counters that! And I like the stair hall wallpaper.

  3. Make my reservation for Middlemarch.

    The realtor serves justice well deserved with this listing.

    I saw this house here in last Friday’s link exchange as a share from jenniedottsvintageva. It’s the last one on the page in case you missed it.


    I am still marvelling at how stunning it is. If I were to buy this house, I would want all the furnishings, everything to stay because no matter what I did, I would never be able to make this home look as beautiful as it is right now.
