Historic home for sale in Staunton

Thinking of moving to Staunton? This house could be for you and it's located just a few blocks from historic downtown Staunton's City Hall, shopping, restaurants, and all that the Queen City has to provide.

It belongs to a friend and I just had to share because it's a gorgeous property. This house has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in 3,614 square feet on a lot that is 0.23 acre, and it just went on the real estate market. New listing!

Here's more from the website:
Walking through the front door, on your left is the sun-bathed living room that highlights a Victorian house built over 130 years ago. Continuing past the formal dining room you come to the family room that accesses the 12'x 21' glass conservatory; further back is the new kitchen with modern cabinets and appliances.

Off the kitchen is the pantry/mud room and laundry, leading to the back yard and patio. A very private patio awaits your morning coffee or late afternoon glass of wine. As you sit on the patio, you are surrounded by several garden areas offering beauty and bounty, utilizing native plants, xeriscaping, and an organic vegetable/herb garden.

Downstairs, opposite the living room, is the study featuring an ornate mirrored full mantle and fireplace, with shelves for over 3000 books. Continuing upstairs via the beautiful staircase, you will come to the master bedroom that mirrors the floor plan of the living room below it. Featuring a 20x15' room, you have a beautifully designed master bath with a heated ceramic floor and walk-in closet, and gas fireplaces in both rooms.

Across the hall is a bedroom that features another gas fireplace and a privately joining full bath for those special guests. Further down the hall is a 2nd floor porch to catch the morning sun, and it even has its own attached storage room. Lastly, there are 2 bedrooms at the end of the hall. A place to escape, yet you are a five minute walk to downtown Staunton with all of its entertainment and restaurants.

There are lots of features that make this home unique. From the delicate outside painting and trim to the fireplaces and gardens, this is a lot of value for someone wanting to live in Staunton's hippest neighborhood.

During the renovation in 2005, the entire physical plant was replaced. New plumbing, electrical, and Air conditioning. Kitchen, 5 gas fireplaces, including one in the study, the master bedroom, the master bath, family room, and guest bedroom.

You will have off street parking and a paved driveway to the back of the lot with its 4 bay garage. While over 100 years old, the renovation was done with great attention to detail, and there were no shortcuts taken.

This house is listed just above the assessment of $372,000 and offers a lot of value and beauty. Walk to downtown in 5 minutes, park off the street, and enjoy a beautifully restored Victorian home.
Be sure to check the website for additional information about schools and more.

The central Shenandoah Valley ... it's a wonderful place to call home.
