Randolph-Macon College from 1877-1886.
I pass by so many of these historic beauties on my walks and enjoy watching them slowly be restored. My fella thinks that this place has the potential to be all gothed up. And now that I look at the picture, it does look a little spooky. I was enamored by the gardening potential since there was hardly any landscaping, and the fact that there was a long back porch AND a balcony off of one of the bedrooms.
Each time we attend an open house, we learn more about what we want; and, when we're ready we'll be able to buy the perfect house. I'm just hoping that when we're ready, it's the Elmira Shelton House that is being restored... preferably with the contractors including central air!
If you want a peep inside today's beauty, follow the link.Keep in mind that this isn't a historic renovation. That kitchen is super modern as are the bathrooms. The house still has many of the quirky features of a house of that time...including my fella had to watch his head when entering some of the rooms since the height of the doors were quite low... not for me but I'm only 5'4".
