Formerly numbered 406 Chestnut, this turreted Victorian could be the most outstanding home on the block.  Beautiful carved front doors are among the most magnificent in Danville.

Inside this one has been stripped to the studs, though the pocket doors remain in place and much of the trim has been retained. Outside, the porch roof has been completely rebuilt and the home recently painted.  Ramshackle rear additions were removed with the rear presently in plywood in case the new owner wishes to expand.

Owner/agent:  Held For Resale
Square Feet: 2,977   Lot: 9,400
Asking: $30,000      Annual property tax: $250

A rare survivor, this late-antebellum era house was built on the property of Dr. N. T. Green, one of Danville’s early physicians for whom the street was named. Even with a two-story addition in 1900, much of the early core on the right remains visible. The rear of the home has reminders of its early origins, especially its large teardrop-shaped brackets still hanging from the deep eaves. Substantial work is needed to remove or rebuild a single-story rear addition.

Square Feet: 4,632   Lot: 9,700 +/-

For the millionaire who has everything except a grand brick Victorian mansion.  While in EMERGENCY need of roof repairs, this home has never been remuddled and has all of its original features.  Grand entrance doors, huge plaster medallions, pocket doors, fireplace surrounds and overmantles, large rooms and plenty of them.  This one is for the experienced rehabber who wants the best Victorian in the Old West End.

Pending further research, the earliest occupant is believed to be druggist Fred A. Clarke.  He and his descendants resided in the home from before 1890 into the 1930s.  Son John became a medical doctor while son Arthur was a man of the cloth.  The widow Clarke passed here in September 1930.
