A prominent feature of Lexington's landscape since the 18th century, the Reid-White-Philbin House (aka Evergreen House) is an exceptionally rare historic home with significant vernacular and high-style features. Restored in the 1970s after being used by a fraternity, it is again ready to be re-imagined! The original late colonial stone cottage retains comfortable, rustic spaces on 2 levels. The brick mansion (1821; 1847; and later) offers grand gathering and entertaining rooms, covered porches, a spacious master suite, multiple bedroom options, a conservatory/sunroom, a large eat-in kitchen, storage/service areas, and semi-finished basement and attic spaces. The cozy brick guesthouse includes a working fireplace. Your once-in-a-lifetime rehabilitation opportunity in Historic Lexington, VA!
