Property Description

The John Paul Jones House, located across the street from the VRE/Amtrak Rail Station in Historic Fredericksburg, VA, is now available for sale. The home built circa 1758 by original owners Thomas and Jane Blanton, soon became a tailor shop and home to the William Paul family, brother of John PaulJones, the father of the American Navy. The celebrated and revered Admiral Jones visited his brother William often during his Navy career and finally, after William s death, settled his brother s will while living in the home. In 1941, the Daughters of the American Revolution held a dedication ceremony and installed a plaque marking the home as the only house in America lived in by John Paul Jones. Over the years, the house has also served many other purposes including a Safeway grocery store, a bakery, and a lighting shop. The current owners began restoring the house in 2002 and have made many infrastructure upgrades on plumbing and electrical to bring it to modern standards. The owners have reconstructed most walls, installed all new windows, and central heat and air. The status of the project offers a unique opportunity for new owners to put their own spin on many of the cosmetic upgrades that still need to be made. The house is a total of 2,400 square feet on three levels. Level one now features a kitchen and bathroom with granite countertops, a tankless water heater, and a whole house water filtration system. Level two features a master suite with two large walk-in closets and a den and sitting room and a master bathroom that still needs to be upgraded. Level three has been gutted and is an opportunity for a new owner to totally define the space. The outside attributes include a large courtyard with shed enclosed by a tall fencing and two off-street parking spaces with an opportunity to build a garage. Plenty of use options: Zoned residential, commercial Walk one minute to VRE, restaurants, city events/music. Viewing of the property is by appointment only.
