This property is two tax parcels, a double lot, with HUGE yard, garden plantings.A 125-acre wildlife refuge with miles of trails is nearby.

Original part of house has a formal dining room, parlor, half bath, and small room on first floor. Upstairs, two bedrooms, small office, and a full bath. Four fireplaces and a flue for wood stove are from the two ancient chimney stacks and flue at the modern addition. The house was once a live-work-home with a U.S. Post Office in the residence. An outstanding formal boxwood garden compliments this colonial. The circa 1750's and 1800 parts of the house retain much of the original fabric, woodwork, and elements of design and construction. Walk where people did before the United States came into existence. Touch woodwork over 250 years old. Please note that Rev. Ralph Fall's book dates the house to those periods. A Virginia Department of Historic Resources study dates the house to about 1789; both resources are in the NARRATIVE in the MLS Documents section. First floor master bedroom suite with access to brick patio from living room. Kitchen is also in the modern addition featuring the master bedroom suite and living room. Half bath on the first level. Two bedrooms, full bath, and an office on the second level; all located in the original parts of the house.Two sides of the house shelter a discreet brick patio, which facies the formal boxwood garden: perfect for relaxing or small gatherings. The double lot (two tax map parcels) is about a half-acre in size with fencing. History and more information are in the NARRATIVE, in the Document section of this MLS. Please read the Narrative. A 25% Virginia Tax Credit might apply for rehabilitation costs. Virginia Tax Credits and Federal Tax Deductions for granting a facade-open space easement to protect the property, might be possible and add to the value. Go to the NARRATIVE in Document section of this MLS.House is in fair condition, needs work. As an example, the rug in the bedroom suite needs replacement, modern addition. Propane tank in ground belongs to Quarles and they will upgrade, replace with new tank. Gas cooking stove. And propane used in heating with heat pumps. The house needs a new roof.Exercise caution, especially on the small steps in the original parts of the house. Sale is by power of attorney by executor for Owner, who is out of state. Information is not complete or guaranteed accurate. The house was owner occupied up to about October 2021. House is in fair condition, livable, and needs work. Get a home inspection. A great gem to shine. NOTE: the MLS shows value for just one lot. There are two tax map parcels, two lots. The formal boxwood garden extends over both lots. If the vacant lot was sold for $55,000, that would cut the boxwood garden and diminish privacy. Yes, the price for the house comes down to $284,000, but at a cost. The property is worth more as a whole. House sold in "AS-Is" condition. Best to show during daylight, lights were removed. See the page titled "VALUE" in the NARRATIVE. MLS shows only one tax map parcel; there are two tax maps parcels, and the assessment and taxes will be just a little higher. READ THE NARRATIVE IN THE DOCUMENT SECTION OF BRIGHT.GREAT OPPORTUNITY for a genuine period house with modern addition; best of both worlds with an outstanding formal colonial boxwood garden and quaint small brick patio overlooking the garden and large yard on a spacious half acre lot. A United States Wildlife Refuge nearby features miles of walking trails along the Rappahannock River and Roy+GGs Run tidal creek. Check heating fuel type; Executrix unsure.
