Dream House of the Week


A little insomnia, so I look at old houses.
This one I found a few months ago.
It is a favorite of mine, especially because I have been slowly developing some kind of interest in/fascination with the Civil War over the past several months...

Mountain Home circa 1847
Front Royal, Virginia



6000 sq. ft. 1847 Greek Revival on 3.7 acres.

"Rare opportunity to own an historical, architecturally significant, un-renovated gem with original interior trim. On market for the 2nd time in 167 years.

Mountain Home has been accepted into both the National and Virginia Registries of Historic Places, which allow for potential tax credits of up to 45% against renovation costs.

Poignant 1862 diary of 15 year old girl recounts civil war drama enfolding on and around the Mountain Home property."

-O.K. so the diary bit is really interesting and to me is one of the best parts surrounding this whole house. Read excerpts of it HERE
