Houses in the early 1800s were orientated toward the prevailing winds for cooling. The front door at Locust Grove faces West and its center hall runs East. The style was 2 large rooms on each level: 1st floor: dining room & living room, each with a wood-burning fireplace for heat. A wide center hall leads to the back of the house, & a staircase goes up; 2nd floor: 2 bedrooms with wood-burning fireplaces. Cooking was still done away from the house because of fire hazards.

As new innovations came along, people added a kitchen & gathering room across the back of the house & extending the center hall. Above were addition bedroom & baths.This house had an 3rd addition along the South end allowing for a 1/2 bath, furnace, enlarged kitchen; & upstairs, a 2nd 1/2 Bath & Office w/ circular stairs leading to main level. The present owner converted a small bedroom near the master into a black & white marble bath w/ a huge shower/steam room & jetted tub filled by water falling from a ceiling valve.

The house was painted last year. The kitchen was gutted & replaced w/ the finest quality appliances & kitchen counter tops of Brazilian Granite. Floors in the kitchen, gathering & utility/mud rooms have been replaced by stone. Most of the 1815 Heart Pine floors are intact. Across the back runs a partially covered curved terrace allowing space for tables & views to the pool or pond.

LocustGrove is listed with both the Virginia and National Historic Registries.

So the wash stall with hot & cold water is next door. There is a septic field and huge loft that could be converted to an apartment in the future. The center aisle is extra wide & matted.
