Old Outside, New Inside

If you like the look of older farmhouses, but are more of a New House person, this might be for you. The circa 1860 home in the Kitchawan area of southern Yorktown had a major renovation and addition in 2003. While the exterior is pristine, the interiors seem to have lost most of their original details. The kitchen has the now-standard stainless appliances and granite counters, and the bathrooms look nicely updated. The house has 2,500 square feet with four bedrooms and the 6 acre property includes a 4 stall barn. While some of the interiors feel a bit bland and boxy (I much prefer the similar Chadeayne Homestead, which is just down the road and also for sale, albeit for a lot more), this listing does offer a lot for a pretty low price. $849,000 ERA Insite Realty
