A piece of living history, this cherished home holds tales from centuries past! Originally established in 1772, the dwelling was burned during the Revolutionary War, because of its owner's allegiance to the King. Remarkably, history lives on in the original ship-timber basement joists. Reconstructed in 1784, the home boasts enduring heart-of-pine plank floors, 5 fireplaces (2 Gas & 3 Decorative), and lofty 10ft ceilings. A meticulous restoration in 2003 introduced modern conveniences; updating plumbing, wiring, kitchen, baths, ceilings, walls, insulation, and surround sound throughout. The 2019 JES crawl encapsulation and recent HVAC & Window installations in 2023 add contemporary comfort. Step into the courtyard, a haven for relaxation, birdwatching, or gardening. The well-tended gardens house blueberries, pomegranates & rosemary. Enjoy sweeping views of the Elizabeth River, and revel in the convenience of being less than a block away from the Norfolk Waterside Ferry.
