Location: Milford, Virginia

Price: $2,200,000

This incredible Italianate mansion was built around 1856, and it appears to have been largely untouched since then. It’s also certainly seen better days, and though it takes the term “fixer-upper” to another level, its gorgeous, solid bones are simply stunning and would make for the ideal foundation on which to rebuild and to restore it to its former glory.

Set on over 400 acres in Milford, Virginia, it features incredible, original woodwork, crown molding, multiple fireplaces, beautiful windows, a grand main staircase, and enormous potential. The property includes a barn for hay and equipment storage, a large pond, and offers panoramic pastoral views. Unfortunately, the listing provides no further details, but it’s clear from the photos that the home was once a gem. Now all it needs is a good dusting off.

Located at 19370 Mattaponi Trail, it’s asking $2,200,000.
