A four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom Victorian house built in 1891, on a 0.7-acre lot
This house is on one of Waynesboro’s main streets, a few blocks from the center of town and within walking distance of City Hall, antiques shops and casual restaurants.

Size: 3,898 square feet
Price per square foot: $85
Indoors: A wide brick path with a stone fountain at the center leads from the street to the covered porch, which is partially screened and large enough to hold a dining table.
The front door opens into a wide entrance hall with high ceilings and hardwood floors. The parlor, to the immediate left, has an original fireplace that was preserved during a recent renovation in which the kitchen and primary bathroom were updated.
Through a wide doorway is a dining room with a crystal chandelier. This space is connected to a two-room kitchen with green cabinetry, butcher-block counters, stainless steel appliances and a center island with a wine refrigerator.
On the other side of the kitchen is a carpeted living room with a bay window overlooking the backyard.
The primary bedroom, off the foyer, has another original fireplace; it is connected to an updated bathroom by a short hallway. Another hallway, off the other side of the bedroom, leads to a powder room and a guest room at the front of the house.
The other two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the house. One has its own exterior entrance and is currently used as a family room; the other has an en suite bathroom with a claw-foot tub. A second kitchen with a vintage enamel stove is also in this part of the house.
Outdoor space: The front and rear yards are planted with mature trees. A carport with one parking spot sits at the end of a long driveway.

At the back of the kitchen, a glass door opens to the backyard and an open staircase leads to the second floor.
The entire second level serves as a guest suite. The bedroom has a wall lined with built-in cabinetry and is big enough to hold a queen-size bed and a desk. The bathroom next door has a vanity with chrome hardware and a combined tub and shower. A laundry room with a stacked washer and dryer is also on this level.

The double front doors open into a living room with hardwood floors, tall windows and a midcentury-modern style pendant light. Behind the living room is a large kitchen with green cabinetry, a white subway-tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances and enough room for a dining table.
All three bedrooms are off a hallway extending from the living room. The primary suite, at the back of the house, is large enough to hold a king-size bed and has a bathroom with a walk-in shower lined with glossy green tile. The guest room next door is big enough for a queen-size bed; it shares a bathroom off the main hallway with the third bedroom, at the front of the house. Nearby is a laundry room with a side-by-side washer and dryer.
The sellers, who bought the house in 2019, renovated it extensively, and are also selling the furnishings.
