Save This Brick Beauty in Crockett, Virginia!

Save This Brick Beauty in Crockett, Virginia!

by Amanda Davis

I love old brick houses, and better yet when they’re in Virginia. That state just oozes charm! I was there just last week and its historic buildings never fail to amaze me. Today’s fixer upper is in Crockett, which is located just off I-81 and about halfway between Roanoke and Bristol. It’s on the market for $72,500 and features 4 bedrooms, 1 bath, and over 2,800 square feet.
 
With the house comes 3.6 acres of land and a few old wooden sheds. Call me crazy, but I love those and would never tear them down. I think they add their own charm just sitting there abandoned.

I love this house’s simplicity, and so much of it is intact. It even still has its wood windows — color me smitten!

The porch might have been a later addition, just like the attached building at the rear of the brick house. The house has two chimneys, and I bet there are fireplaces on the second floor, too.

The interior needs a lot of work, but there are some nice features including the wood-paneled wainscoting and mantels. Once it’s restored, I can see this being a very cozy place to come home to.

    Get rid of the wooden addition. Salvage the parts. The front porch is probably an addition. It should however be renovated allong with the brick structure.
