318 Lewis St, Culpeper VA 22701 – Farm House & Land (Cancelled)
318 Lewis St, Culpeper VA, is a 1930’s Farm House on 2.75 acres (in 2 parcels) in the town of Culpeper, VA, and is now being offered for sale after being in the same family for over 45 years. The lot and home are located within town limits, close to schools, shopping, restaurants, businesses, and commuter routes and just blocks away from Historic Downtown Culpeper. What a perfect location!
Several generations of one family have called this home; the home is sturdy and livable and has had some recent updates, including a new roof in 2015 and the chimney replaced in 2015. It needs some work but with a little TLC can be restored into a great home for its new owner. As you enter the home through the original front of the home, you are greeted with a beautiful wooden staircase with all the craftsmanship of days gone by. The living room features original wood floors and a fireplace which has now been closed off. Pass through a doorway into a small sunroom/enclosed porch. Through another door you find the dining room, also with original wood floors, featuring a wood burning stove with a newer chimney installed in 2015. The kitchen has enough room for all the cooks. Through the kitchen is the main entry to the home, along with a full bath and laundry room. The home features 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs. Each bedroom originally had either a fireplace or wood burning stove, all of which have now been closed off. The owners have retained the original wood floors and wood molding throughout the bedrooms and hallway.
This is an excellent opportunity to own a fine old home; restore it for yourself or to sell, or rent it for current income.

Per the zoning ordinance, 10,000 sf lots are permitted; we estimate approximately 6-10 lots are possible, depending on the site plan, and subject to town approval.
