Overview

Historic charm meets modern luxury at "Harrison House." This 1905 beauty features 4 bedrooms, highlighted by a stunning master suite w/ a 25 foot cathedral ceiling. Airy 10 ft ceilings complement an open floor plan w/ updated kitchen & two downstairs living areas. All area campuses are w/in a short drive.

This spacious, stylish, modernized piece of history is perfect for whatever brings you to Lynchburg! Our pet-friendly home is a great fit for families, larger groups, and any visitor to the “city of Seven Hills.” You’ll have plenty of space in our home to entertain and relax. And, you’ll have wonderful proximity to all that Central Virginia has to offer. Harrison House is minutes (just a short hilly stroll) from Lynchburg’s bourgeoning downtown with wonderful shopping and restaurants, a few miles from local college campuses, and in the heart of the Virginia Blue Ridge with an abundance of outdoor and indoor entertainment options.

Our family (including two small children) loved living here as our primary residence for 2+ years. We experienced the neighborhood to be safe and serene, but we recommend you engage in safe practices such as locking your car doors and being mindful if you’re walking in the surrounding areas past ~10-11pm or so.

Living room: This space is designed to entertain and relax. A luxurious vanilla leather sectional seats up to 6 along with modern seats and decorative pieces. The original pocket doors are restored and functional and open up to a spacious foyer.

Kitchen: Enjoy new, stainless steel appliances, open wood shelves, ample storage space, a gorgeous coffee bar in an original built-in, in the updated kitchen.

**All bedrooms have blackout curtains for your maximum rest and relaxation**

Den/Bedroom 4 (downstairs): This relaxing space includes a tasteful queen sized sleeper sofa and provides access to the back deck that boasts great views of downtown Lynchburg.

Downstairs bathroom: the full downstairs bathroom with original clawfoot tub and laundry services the needs of any and all guests downstairs and especially the overnight needs of the guests sleeping in bedroom # 4.

Bedroom # 1 (master suite): The master suite -- with vaulted ceiling -- is stunning. You will love the king-size bed, spacious private bathroom, adorable double vanity, his/hers closets, and charming desk/workspace!

Bedroom # 2: This bedroom features a queen bed, side tables that capture the home's historic time period and offer convenient storage, large windows, and wonderful natural light.
