Welcome to 265 High Street! This classic Colonial is one of the oldest inhabited structures in historic Petersburg. It was 13 years old when the Declaration of Independence was signed. It's been updated for modern living yet retains its charm and character. The spacious floor plan includes four levels, 3.5 baths and 6 fireplaces. The covered rear porch on the 2nd floor offers plenty of room for outdoor entertaining and relaxing overlooking the brick patio. There is off street parking via access across an adjoining parcel. The late Georgian/Early Federal architecture of the home endures, with a history as a tavern in the early 19th century, and as a "Boarding House for Young Ladies" in the 1820's. High Street has retained its historical integrity and holds a diverse collection of late 18th-and 19th-century architecture. As an early Colonial settlement, Petersburg is one of Virginia's oldest cities. Paralleling the Appomattox River at its fall line, the Old Town Historic District is situated in the city's earliest section. Today the Old Town district is thriving, with new businesses and development while retaining its historic charm and significance.
