  • Property Narrative

    Historic 1870 6-bedroom, 4-bath home within easy walking distance of downtown Lewisburg.  Large yard, many unique details, and brand new roof added in fall of 2020!

    This historic 6-bedroom, 4-bath grand home on Washington Street needs restoration, but is wearing a new roof. It’s easy to envision as a family home, Bed & Breakfast or rental apartments.Set near the front of a large lot, the yard has plenty of room for the addition of a cottage, workshop or playhouse. Details include a columned front porch, large windows, beveled glass, fireplaces and pressed tin ceilings.

    Called the Venable-Mathews-Moore House for the families who have occupied it, the home is nestled among Lewisburg’s oldest homes and overlooks the town’s main street. The front doors, which have etched glass, open into an entry hall that provides a first look at the home’s oak flooring, and an oak staircase with handcrafted newels and balustrades.

    To the left of the entry hall the living room features large windows with decorative woodwork and a wood-burning fireplace, currently sealed. To the right of the entry, the parlor features another sealed fireplace and built-in oak cabinetry with leaded glass.

    Also on the main level are the kitchen, a bedroom with a sitting room and half-bath, two bedrooms with pressed tin ceilings, and a full bath.

    The second level has 3 additional bedrooms. Bedroom One has a fireplace and en suite bath. Bedroom Two has a sitting room and an en suite bath with a porcelain sink and an antique claw-foot tub. Bedroom Three has a fireplace and is served by a bath accessed from the hallway. The second level also includes a small kitchen.

    There is an unfinished attic. A partial basement houses the utilities.

    In the rear of the house a stone patio, partly covered and partly open, overlooks the large, level backyard.

    A “project house”, this piece of Lewisburg history is waiting for the right owner to restore it to its place among the grand homes on Washington Street.
