"Built in 1870 by Judge William T. Joynes for his daughter and later restored by prominent preservationist Mollie McCrea, this architecturally refined Italianate house, exudes the genteel air of Petersburg~s Poplar Lawn Historic District, a fashionable 19th-century neighborhood surrounding a two-block public park. Ornamented with arched windows, impressive cast iron fencing and handsome front and rear porches, the exquisitely preserved Mollie McCrea House, retains most of its original historic fabric: mantels, moldings, doors and luminous windows with wavy glass. This 3,372 sf brick house flows easily over two floors. Soaring ceilings and full-length windows keep the first floor bright and open, yet grand. There you~ll find living room, dining room, powder room, and picturesque kitchen with fireplace that opens to a porch and a family room. Upstairs are three bedrooms with fireplaces, two full baths, and a sitting room. Near lively restaurants, breweries, and regional medical center, easy access to I-95. Only 30 mins from Richmond."
