The house on this 400 acre estate was built before the Civil War, and now it's looking for a buyer to fix it up.

Built in 1856, Spring Grove is a two-story Italianate mansion totaling 12,000 square feet and 26 rooms (eight of which are bedrooms). The house has been in the same family since it was built, and the current owners have worked on restoring the exterior, including the cupola, the porticos, the roof, the windows and shutters. The interior, however, is still in 19th century condition, complete with faux wood and marble painting, some furniture, and even books. It's history meets ruin porn.

The property is located south of Bowling Green, Virginia, and 45 minutes north of Richmond and is listed for $2.2 million.
