Lumpkin House in the Old West End

855 Pine St, Danville, VA 24541, USA
$26,250

Description

This raised Folk Victorian cottage is replete with Queen Anne-inspired details. This is especially evident on the front porch with its turned balusters, Tuscan columns, and side turret. Another notable feature is the front door with sidelights and a front-facing gable with copper finial. Inside, the house retains its historic plan, hardwood floors, decorative plaster cornices in the entrance hall, and several intact fireplace mantels.

While not as ornate, the walk-out lower level has the same floor plan as the main level. It could serve as in-law quarters, hobby space, or perhaps a rental.

The house at 855 Pine Street was first inhabited by brothers George W. and Nathaniel W. Lumpkin, the sons of Dr. Nathaniel Wilson and Alice Hawkins Lumpkin, who, at the time, lived nearby on Patton Street. Dr. Lumpkin was a respected veterinarian who developed healing salves. Lumpkin’s Electric Ointment and Lumpkin’s Lightning Flash Ointment were touted as cures for everything from cuts and burns to eczema, hemorrhoids—and even cancer!

Unfortunately, Dr. Lumpkin did not find the same relief when, in November of 1898, while on a hunting expedition with friends, one tripped in a hole and his gun discharged at close range, shattering Dr. Lumpkin’s leg. Two weeks later, Dr. Lumpkin died.

Nathaniel Lumpkin Jr. was in the livery and exchange business and worked as a courier. His brother George assisted him as manager.

Despite its present appearance, this one could be stunning. Square feet and number of rooms listed are per level. Architect’s report available. All offers considered.
