It is Sunday, the day of the week OHU50K rests from its under $50K cares to feature homes up to $100K. We have three properties today: a city house; a waterfront property on 2.75 acres; and this 1.5-acre mountain view home in Tazewell, Virginia, the gateway to the heartland of the Appalachian Mountains.
Built in 1899, this was the home of Louise Leslie, a lifetime resident of Tazewell who died in January of this year at the age of 89. She was an author, historian and editor/columnist for her family-owned newspaper, the Clinch Valley News, one of the oldest newspapers in Virginia. Louise did not want a funeral service, but instead left this upbeat message that tickled me, “Thanks, I had a good time.”
Must be cash or conventional financing! A beautiful, private lot comes with this mountain view home. Home of Tazewell County’s beloved historian and journalist, Louise Leslie. This historic home has abundant character. High ceilings, picture railing, large rooms, and wide hallway. Gorgeous woodwork and mantels. Glass paned front entrance opens into a parlor with a fireplace. Newer metal roof! Hardwood and carpet. Three bedroom, two bath home. Unique detail work on porches. Kitchen needs upgrade, has floor issue. This beauty can be lovingly restored to be a showplace. At this price, home is being sold “as is” and no repairs will be made. Room measurements and further information forthcoming.
