As someone who grew up in a historic home, I can attest there really is nothing like the experience. Now that I’m old enough to appreciate real estate, our featured listing, offered by Gloria Rose Ott and Rachael Duvall of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.15 million, makes me a little nostalgic for home.
Seller Debbie Winsor had great taste and a good eye when, about six years ago, she purchased the white farmhouse property, built in 1900. The home, located at 199 Main St. in Washington, Virginia, includes three bedrooms (one a four-person bunk room) and two and a half baths. It’s a country haven, with all the coziness of being enveloped in Rappahannock County and the Blue Ridge Mountains as your backdrop.
The chef’s kitchen is fit for any Nancy Meyers movie, with lots of open shelving. There are rustic additions, too, like pine floors and stone fireplace hearths. Gardeners (or aspiring ones!) will be happy to see there’s a boxwood garden on the property.
Washington, called the “first” Washington or Little Washington, is where the three-Michelin-starred Inn at Little Washington is located. If you’re looking for a town with a lot of history, this is it. Founded in 1769, it was surveyed by a young George Washington. The homey nature of this American small town makes it the perfect place to get to know everyone; chances are, you’ll end up getting to know most of the 200 residents.
The Winsor house offers elegant, simplified country living, ideal for working from home during these uncertain times. More information on the property can be found HERE.
