The interesting thing about this wonderful old house is that the realtor has it listed as being “c. 1921”.
Who thinks the agent’s guestimate is off by a few decades?
Granted he does state “City records do not go back past 1921”, but come on. This house is waaaaaay older than the 1920’s. It likely pre-dates the Civil War!
Look at the beautiful old brick on the exterior! Clearly, this gal has some years on her.
Located in Staunton, Virginia, this (age unknown) home is listed for sale for $339,000.
The interior is elegant and richly historic.
Have a look!
The wide plank floors are another clue to the home’s advanced age.
The house has only 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 2,400 square feet, but the high ceilings make it feel gracious & spacious.
There are four gorgeous wood-burning fireplaces in the home.
Look at the little bump-out nook in the formal dining room:
A sweet place to drink your after-dinner sherry!
The kitchen in this amazing old home is… well, kind of a letdown.
It can only be described as “meh”.
Wisely, the Realtor didn’t use a whole lot of kitchen photos in the listing.
Instead, he focused on the truly thrilling part of the house: the amazing historic details that are still intact.
Upstairs, there are two very spacious bedrooms.
Have a closer look at the wooden mantle:
In the bedroom below, there is both a fireplace and a built-in bookshelf. Throw some rugs and a nice old bed, plush armchairs, and you will have a cozy retreat!
The second-floor stairs carry on to the third-level attic.
The finished attic is fabulous!
What a great bonus space for an office, den, playroom, studio, or guest area.
Plenty of natural light with those skylights. And those floors!
The preserved historic details in this house are enviable.
Another bonus is the semi-private back porch:
The prominent red brick house at 26 Fayette Street sits on a lot an entire City block deep with a 4-bay garage at the back of the property.
But built in 1921?
