Recent renovations brought a modern, open-feel to a classic country kitchen by removing a portion of the wall and turning the remainder into a breakfast bar. Picture your children working on their evening homework on their own stools, close enough for you to provide assistance, but with enough separation so as not to get underfoot as you prepare dinner.
The massive, bright kitchen features a sizable pantry closet, reclaimed cabinets, ample counter space, and a wet bar are perfect for food preparation and serving family and guests in the dining room. Hosting a party? Open the side door off the dining room and allow for easy flow from kitchen to dining room to side deck. A second door off the kitchen leads to a tile-floored laundry room, large enough for storage. The laundry room also leads out back, making trash removal from the kitchen a quick process.
Upstairs, the extra-spacious master suite is likely the largest you’ll find anywhere. Three windows provide amazing views of the tree-lined streets, making autumn an especially picturesque time to spend a Saturday morning in bed. Adjoining the bedroom is the ensuite bathroom. The marble floors, comfort-height commode, and walk-in tile shower big enough for two bring a touch of luxury to this tranquil space.
Two additional large bedrooms feature restored wood floors and plenty of natural light. The guest bathroom at the end of the hall is an escape in itself. The sandy tile floors, sky blue walls, and claw foot tub allow for a warm bath in an island getaway without ever leaving your home. Imagine being transported to a tropical paradise as rain gently falls on the tin roof overhead.
Outside, relax on the columned from porch while listening to the faint clamor of trains half-a-mile away, or the music from the church bells twice a day. Out back, relax with a good book
under an ancient oak tree. Though great the way it is, with the right eye for landscaping, the ivy and tree barriers provide the perfect opportunity for a charming English garden.
The oversized lot in the highly-desirable Olivertown neighborhood of Crewe features street and off-street parking. Take a stroll just a block away to the prominent Oliver Mansion or three blocks to downtown Crewe. Want to get a workout in? Strap on your running shoes and go for an invigorating jog down Indian Oak Road, directly behind the property, to the farms and historic homes less than a mile away. The corner lot location along prominent secondary roads means you are never more than two turns from Richmond, Lynchburg, and beyond.

This one-of-a-kind property meets at the intersection of comfort and character. As you step into the front door of this 1910 house, you’re immediately struck with the unique characteristics that make this an ideal place to call home. Beautiful wood floors accentuate a rustic staircase. Ample storage is available in the foyer’s over-sized coat closet, as well as a separate under-the-stairs nook.
The foyer leads to the living room, a warm, inviting space with plenty of natural light. Features of the living room include a propane fireplace powerful enough to warm most of the home and a built-in bookcase. The perfect place to relax after a long day at work.
A French door off the living room takes you into the dining room, meticulously renovated to bring together modern comfort and old warm charm. The visually striking floors in the dining room and kitchen are the original heart pine, painstakingly restored to their original beauty. A cozy half-bath with tile floor adjoins the dining room, an ideal location for a quick wash-up without disrupting kitchen operations.
