Rare opportunity to own a piece of history - this beautiful Italianate mansion is known as The Thomas Wallace House, built in 1855 and it's listed on The National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register. President Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant met at this home on April 3, 1865, the day after Petersburg fell, to discuss the impending conclusion of the Civil War. The house served as General Grant’s headquarters in Petersburg and he learned of the fall of Richmond on it's front porch. This home offers four bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a stunning foyer when you first walk in, four living parlors on the first level, a large dining room and an eat-in kitchen. Many of it's original features are preserved and this includes an early 20th century cast iron fence on the street fronts, granite curbing, mature trees on the entryway, beautiful moulding, dramatic staircase and 12' ceilings. A detached studio that's perfect for an office or an artist studio. It's zoned for business and residential and could make for a great bed & breakfast as Petersburg is starting to thrive again!
