About the Property

150 year old historic home, upstairs apartment, 2bed/1 bath

Our home is located in Historic Old Town Warrenton on Main Street right next to the Mosby Museum. Enjoy strolling down Main Street visiting the quaint shops and historic buildings or relaxing on the balcony over looking Main Street. From the back door you look down on a flower garden, birds, butterflies and lovely 1/2 acre yard.

Our home was built approximately in 1859, right before the Civil War. A likeness of our home was included in a sketch by Theodore Davis Leslies for Harpers Weekly in 1862. A copy of this sketch is located in the foyer of the apartment. The apartment consists of the upper floor of our home and has been a separate apartment for many many years. During recent renovations we discovered the box locks located in the oldest part of the home are dated 1861, right before the Civil War. The upstairs 2 bedroom 1 Bath apartment has large rooms, the kitchen is equipped with dishes, pots and pans, appliances, and most items to make it easy to prepare meals. The 2 queen size beds are equipped with Select Comfort Mattresses for your comfort.

It is a very short walk to the restaurants, bakery, shops, museums, the library, banks, post office and the Court House. The Court House has burned twice in its history. In our front yard a base to one of the columns of the Court House has been left there for many years. It is made of seneca red limestone which is very rare. We have no idea how it came to be located in our front yard.

Being located in Warrenton, we are close enough to easily visit or work in Washington DC, yet provide a relaxing and comfortable place to stay away from the big city. We are close to several Wineries, Equestrian sites, including the Gold Cup, Museums, Luray Caverns, Skyline Drive, The Blue Ridge and numerous other interesting places in Northern Virginia. We are interested in catering to tourists for short visits to the area for special events, fun and relaxation. We are also interest in providing a short term home while waiting for a home to be built or guests that are new to the area and need a temporary home. Give us a call so we can discuss your specific needs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We moved to Warrenton to be near grandchildren and a new job in Washington, DC in 2010.

Why the Owner Chose Warrenton, VA, USA:
We had been looking for a home for months while living in our daughters basement. We were looking mainly in the country for a little acreage. After Christmas in 2010 we drove by this beautiful house on Main Street and decided we had to look. Our realtor told us it was the first house we entered where we both started smiling when we walked in the front door. We loved it immediately. It was beautiful to us from day one even though it needed some TLC. We have enjoyed every minute of stripping wall paper, patching and painting. It has been a labor of love. It is not a fancy victorian home but it is a beautiful and unique Farm Style home. In many of the rooms the heart pine floors go from wall to wall in one piece. We are tickled and excited to have the upstairs apartment ready for you!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This apartment is perfect if you are moving to the area and want to look around before buying or need a home while waiting for your home to be built. Do you have family in the area? Stay in our comfortable apartment while visiting the area. Our shortest rental term is 3 months. If you are looking for a waterfront lake house, check out our home on Lake Anna #463341 :)
