    A lot has been done, good price!
    Nice house. I wonder what the building is directly in front of it is.

  3. Beautiful house….. very elegant. Wonderful architectural elements. Seems like a fair price for the house, lot, location. Sometimes I wish I were a magician…. and could put this house on at least 20 acres… with a long driveway lined with magnolias.

    What a great home! The picture of the dining table in front of the window, I don’t know, time long lost it just feels like. Once a room full of family & laughter, one would hope, now just a lonely table in the sunlight… I don’t why I feel so much sadness from this pic omgosh!! I like it, a few things to change, otherwise great!

    Beautiful, beautiful home, but the replacement stair balusters make me sad.

    Known as the Walter Thomas House, one of a group of fine antebellum homes in Leasburg. The portico is majestic, and the house just needs someone to care for it!

    I agree about the balusters, however the tiger oak or tiger maple hand railing makes up for that. A lot of work has been done to this house already, just needs some love .

    This one should be called amazing potential. I can just see her all fixed up covered in Christmas lights… stunning!

      Would make a great home for someone moving south who wants to work from home. It’s close to the North Carolina Research Triangle area where a lot of big companies have located.

    Very pretty leading photo, with the light snow falling and dusting of it on the ground.

    It says currently heated via gas logs in the fireplaces. On the Zillow listing, it says gas heat and central air. I’m wondering if the person residing there is maybe older and only uses a couple of rooms. It’s a lovely house. The photo with snowflakes should be on a greeting card. Looks to be in fairly good condition. I think it is a great buy. Hard to believe it was built in the mid 1800’s. Very beautiful. I would have fun remodeling the kitchen. Oh my creative juices are in full swing with this house!!
    More pics here. Not on market?

    I have to agree with others on the picture postcard winter view of this lovely house. The falling snow makes me want to rush inside to warm fires burning brightly in all the many fireplaces, pull up an old Boston rocker with a well loved quilt, good book and cup of tea. There I would stay. This house is just waiting to welcome a new family to love it and do some “dress up.” It does seem to be an amazingly good price. The extra pictures were dessert!

    What a hauntingly beautiful home! Am I the only one who thinks those furnished interior photos look like they’re from a 1970s shelter may? Or an Ethan Allen furniture catalog from the same era?

  14. There seems to be differences in the house between the snowy pictures and the other exterior picture. Wondering how long between when these pictures were taken and there are missing trees. I’d like to renovate the kitchen and refinish the floors. Too bad two of the fireplaces are covered. Maybe bring them back to their original beauty.
