By
529 mccalls ferry rd

A historic farmhouse set on 2.4 acres with four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms is available for sale in Parkesburg. 

Built in 1795, this splendid residence was the first public schoolhouse for the local community.

The home welcomes you with its antechamber and front-to-back hallway. Old newspaper clippings from the 1860s and vintage area maps discovered in the attic adorn the walls of the foyer and add to the historic character of the building. 

The great room to the left of the entrance features abundant natural light and a wood-burning stove with slate hearth. Meanwhile, the renovated kitchen to the right has a separate eating area, hardwood floors, and ample island seating.

The upper level is home to two bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a second-floor laundry room, and a full bathroom. 

The finished attic is currently set up as a home office, but the possibilities for its use are endless.

A separate apartment within the residence was added during a 2009 renovation. This has two bedrooms and a full bathroom along with a separate parking area and private entrance. 

The property overlooks a grassy hillside and panoramic vistas. Spacious gardens and mature landscaping make this an ideal property for gardeners.
