Off market. Wow! Over One Acre Abandoned 1865 Mansion in Virginia Sold For Only $139,900

I absolutely love this home! It was built for Judge Orr back in 1865. The Orr Manor is situated on a lovely 1.6-acre piece of land in Jonesville, Virginia. Before the current owners got a hold of it and began restoring it, the house had been empty and untouched for quite a while. They’ve upgraded the electrical system and maintained the original cupola, which I find really charming. There’s also a separate barn on the property. The house itself is quite spacious at 2,784 square feet, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It’s priced at $139,900.

Here’s what the Zillow listing says:

Welcome to Orr Manor! This is a Victorian-era home with a mix of Gothic Revival and Italianate styles. It was originally built in 1865 by Judge Orr, but it went through various ownership changes and was left abandoned until the current owners rescued it. Don’t be misled by the faded exterior paint – it doesn’t reflect the current condition of the property.

While there have been some interior adjustments made to suit personal preferences, they’ve taken great care to preserve the original character, charm, and elegance. The modernized windows offer views of the surrounding rural and small-town America. The wiring has been updated, and the only thing left is to add chandeliers and faceplates.

The walls are finished and ready for your personal touch. There’s so much potential here; you can turn it into a perfect dream home. You could even use the four bedrooms and gardens to host weddings or run a bed and breakfast for some extra income. It’s a fantastic opportunity for those looking for a unique business venture. The land spans over an acre and a half and is mostly flat.

The property features a small two-story barn, a charming servant house (which also serves as a dairy), three porches, a spacious screened patio, an open deck, and a shelter next to the property. As you enter through the main entrance, you’ll be greeted by a grand chandelier and staircase. To the right is a stunning living room, while the left leads to a beautiful dining area connected to the sunroom.

There’s another cozy sitting room to the right of the staircase, with access to the breakfast parlor. Upstairs, you’ll find four generously sized bedrooms, three of which have fireplaces, and one has an attached bathroom. You can also go up to the eye-catching cupola, which provides privacy and breathtaking views of the landscape. This truly unique home has an unmatched appeal. The buyer or their agent should verify the information provided by the seller, some of which comes from tax records. All information is subject to errors and omissions.
