Have you ever dreamed about opening your own inn? This week's home may be just the thing you've been searching for!
Built in 1752, this historic house named Buckskin Manor has served as both a family home and a bed and breakfast. With five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a guesthouse, there is so much you could do with this Purcellville property.
The house has everything you would want for gracious living: a formal dining room, a charming library, and no country home is complete without a porch full of rocking chairs.
The kitchen is the cozy heart of this home. Exposed beams add a rustic touch to an otherwise modern setup.
Upstairs, the bedrooms each have their own character and special features. A fireplace here, a dropped ceiling there, but they all have room for four-poster beds!
Don't worry about the age of the house affecting your everyday conveniences. Constant upkeep and major restorations brought in thoroughly modern, luxurious bathrooms.
Outside, the pool is the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon. On chilly days, sit by the firepit and just enjoy your beautiful surroundings.
The guesthouse would be an ideal getaway if you have an inn full of paying guests. It is simple but well-appointed with a modern kitchen and living space. Updating or adding on to it would be a piece of cake.
With a bit of thoughtful planning, you could easily expand on the rest of the land. Fenced pastures make it a natural choice to add stables and a horse trail.
Stock the pond and add a fishing dock for lazy summer days. Don't forget to get a canoe or two!
Basically, you'd be buying a brand new life with this property. Do you think you have what it takes to create a country bed and breakfast?
