This early twentieth century Neoclassical house in a beautiful neighborhood near downtown Warrenton requires updates (although not a complete rehabilitation) and features a detached office that could also be used as a guest house.
The house has gracious front and side porches and a slate roof, making it attractive from any angle when outside. Originally, there was a beautiful balustrade on the front and side porches that would ideally be restored. The interior features beautiful fireplaces, several French doors, and abundant natural light.
The neighborhood and surrounding area have a walkscore of 60, with a restaurant, cafe, library and grocery store all less than a third of a mile away, while still on a beautiful tree-lined street. Warrenton offers the best of both worlds, with charming, small-town life outside your door, but the amenities and cultural events of the Triangle about an hour away. Recreational activities also abound, as Kerr Lake (a large lake that spans the NC/VA border), with its numerous opportunities for adventure is about an hour away.
