Save This Brick Beauty in Martinsburg, West Virginia

by Amanda Davis

I just love this brick jewel of a fixer-upper in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Located on an acre-and-a-half, this mid-19th century brick beauty is selling for $95,900 and has 5 bedrooms and over 3,500 square feet. She’s quite a gem!

Judging by the photos, it looks as if a front porch was removed at some point. The facade still has a lot of character with that bay window and gabled dormers (which may be later additions – thoughts?). This kind of home is such an American classic, and the stone perimeter wall really adds to the farmhouse charm.
Inside, the home still has a good amount of historic details. Perfect for just the right homeowner to step in and bring her back to life. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart, but take a look for yourself and see if you can dream up some great potential here!

She can be spotted checking out quirky historic details here, there, and everywhere in her handmade dresses. Every time Amanda sees a cozy room with large windows and beautiful built-ins she can’t help but imagine her very own sewing nook with oldies music playing in the background.
