817 Pine Street, Danville, VA $50,000
This fixer upper was going for $30,00 last November, but some work has been to the exterior, so the price is now $50,000.
According to Old West End VA, this one-story wood clad single-family fixer upper “residence is in the Folk Victorian style. It features a front porch supported by square columns and gingerbread in its gables. This home was long occupied by a telegrapher for the steam railroad, with many other railroad employees as his neighbors. This home recently received a new roof structure and shingles as well as a rebuilt porch.”
Work on this fixer upper began this week on a partial rehabilitation of the cottage at 817 Pine Street. Under contract with the City of Danville, the intent is to maintain the existing style and design of the roof and front porch while repairing and replacing damaged or missing members. The aluminum cladding will also be gently washed to improve the home’s overall appearance.
A 2015 assessment by Solex Architecture reported that the home was in overall fair condition. The major issues were the framing and support of the rear addition and improperly repaired fire damage to the roof structure. Since that time, the porch framing, deck, and entry stairs deteriorated further.
