All of the structures at the Duet Farm are historic and have existed for many years. All of these buildings were structurally and cosmetically restored during 2005 and 2006. The farm house is circa 1840. This is a Virginia farm house not to be confused with a Virginia estate house. The firstlevel consists of a living room, entry foyer, storage room, kitchen, bath, bedroom and laundry room. There are covered porches across the full length of the back and the front.The upstairs includes a small office, threebedrooms and a bath. There is a covered porchthat wraps around the back of the second floor. There is a small basement that is currently used as the equipment room for the electricpanel, water pump, water heater, etc. We haveattempted to restore the house to it's original condition. We have not attempted to renovate the house to a modern abode. We replaced all the wiring and installed new plumbing and two bathrooms. All the chimneys have been lined. Three new wood burning stoves have been installed and a glass doored insert has been installed in the living room fireplace. While the cook stove is wood burning, we have hidden modern conveniences, dishwasher, microwaves, toaster oven, etc. in various pieces of furniture to preserve the dated ambiance. Our use for the farm house was that of a guest house for friends and family. The theme was a taste of life at the turn of the 20th century. Most of the house is original. We refinished where possible and replaced only where necessary. All the window glass is the original leaded glass. The light fixtures are all circa 1900 (even though there was not electric service at Duet until 1954). The floors are the original 5/4 cedar. The hardware is mismatched and remains as we found it.
