I thought you might be interested in the price paid for this Virginia Victorian. It originally was listed in April 2016 for $113,900. The listing price kept ratcheting down until in November it was reduced to just $52,900. Final price paid in January ~ $49,900. What a steal!
This 1907 Franklin, Virginia, beauty with turret and curved wrap-around porch drew me in immediately upon first sight. When I spied the third floor Palladian window and original front door with transom and sidelights my heart skipped a beat. If only this beauty was available when our family of nine was still young. I can imagine my two oldest girls reading books on the second-floor window seat and our boys shooting Nerf guns off the sleeping porch. I lost count, but I think there are enough fireplace mantels one for each of our seven kids. The three boys would have the attic as a dormitory-style bedroom, with two girls in each second-floor bedroom and my husband and I in the third. The home has two full baths, but I know my husband always wanted a third bathroom in our New Jersey old home’s third-floor dormitory, so it’d be great to install one in this huge house. The yard is lovely and the house is surrounded by other large, older homes on a pleasant street. While my family is grown now and live in four different states, I’m so happy this Virginia Victorian with tiled mantels, hardwood floors, high ceilings, original doors and trim, wainscoting and a clawfoot tub found another family to help restore it to its former glory.
