By the time the current owners discovered it, not only had this sprawling 106-year-old home, situated on a former chicken farm near Jeffersonville, New York, been converted into six apartments, the ramshackle residence had stood abandoned for 25 years.
Beneath the exterior's yellow asbestos shingles, the owners discovered well-preserved clapboard, which they painted with Benjamin Moore's Flat White.
It is located in the quaint historic town of Blackstone in central Virginia and convenient to Chesterfield and Richmond. In 1985 it was rediscovered & carefully taken apart, moved to a lovely country lot across from Stekoa Creek just south of Clayton, GA.
The cabin was then reconstructed w/ the addition of a large country kitchen, pass-through, bathroom & laundry room.
The remaining three bedrooms and one bath are upstairs. The staircase invites you in to view the 9 feet ceilings, wide baseboards, detailed moldings, wood blinds, glass paneled doors, chandeliers, and a stain glass window.
You will find plenty of storage in the massive closets, built in cabinets, and unfinished basement.
"Immediately, I pulled out a pen to jot notes on a wrinkled paper napkin."Nine months later, the fully renovated bungalow with its roomy addition off the back, brand-new carriage-house–style garage, garden pavilion, and lattice-enclosed courtyard proved a glowing success.
To accentuate the bungalow's clean lines, a new porch railing was added, and the old roof was replaced with faux slate.
Adding to the historic value are the original windows, doors, moldings, floors and exterior finishes.
You must see this home to appreciate its outstanding architectural features. This amazing cabin was hand-hewn from the forest B4 electricity & built in TN.
There is a Rifle Port so that the home could be defended with least exposure, in case of danger. Located East of Adrian and West of Blissfield off 223, this very large building used to be a general store many years ago and at sometime was changed into a residential home.
