Down the street from Murphy’s and across from John Howell Park, this circa-1920 bungalow recently enjoyed a stint on the Virginia-Highland Tour of Homes thanks to its historic charm.
That’s no surprise. There’s a lot to admire in this 3,108-square-foot dwelling aside from the four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Coffered ceilings, plenty of built-ins, wainscoting, and hardwood floors are some of the features that continue to lend authenticity here.
However, it’s quite clear the kitchen and bathrooms have received a lot of attention, adding the “modern style and convenience” mentioned in the listing.
The covered front porch definitely plays into the home’s charm, serving as an outdoor living room where potential homeowners could catch up with the neighbors.
Of course, who doesn’t want a custom koi pond (maintenance schmaintenance), 2,000-bottle wine cellar, and that interesting stone building in the backyard? The listing doesn’t mention the out-building, but it does seem to be suited for more than just storage.
For those interested, it might be important to note that, according to the listing agent, this is just one of two available historic bungalows of the style in Va-Hi.
In fact, she says her firm recently listed a historic bungalow nearby, and it went under contract after “just” 40 days.
No word on if that listing also was asking around $1,300,000 like this one.
