Virginia Civil War locale
Do you have an appreciation for the quality and design of years ago? Have you considered buying an historic home, but were deterred by the price or the commitment required to restore one of these gems of bygone times? Prepare to be pleasantly surprised. Located in the quaint town of Kenbridge, Virginia about an hour southwest of Richmond is such a property. The Louis Atkinson Hardy house is the answer to your quest. It is a restored Queen Anne built in 1909 of the finest materials. The current owners gutted it and brought up to date with all the modern amenities that you might require. All systems are state of the art. The restoration saved all the beautiful woodwork including fireplace mantels that will take your breath away. The owners have run it as a seasonal B & B, but now they are retiring again and they want to pass it on to someone who will enjoy it as a fine private residence or continue/expand the B & B role. The work has been done and it is priced to sell at only $ 419,950. For a private showing please contact Natt Hall, Principal Broker, Virginia Estates, Inc. at 434 242 9893.
