Rare opportunity to own one of Farmville's oldest homes. The stunning Italianate home with a sweeping front porch, arched windows and white columns lies on a quiet street just 2 blocks from downtown and one half mile from Longwood University. The center entrance hall has a beautiful staircase leading to a large 18 x 10 second floor landing and 2 bedrooms with baths. Each bedroom, along with living and dining rooms have lovely old, non-functional fireplaces--some with original tiles. The home has exquisite mouldings, 10' ceilings, and an extraordinary paired front door in beautiful condition. The distinctive and widely overhanging eaves are supported by large, decorative brackets under a deep ornamental cornice. This exceptional home sets on nearly an acre lot and the rear view overlooks the town of Farmville and Longwood University.
