-A A +A
c. 1850, Ira B. Coltrane; George Langbert, builder. VA 21 at VA 666, 1.5 miles south of Elk Creek

This two-story, three-bay, single-pile house with a center passage is one of the county's finest Greek Revival dwellings. The brick house is detailed with an elaborate entablature, prominent lintels over doors and windows, exterior-end chimneys, and a central entrance with sidelights and transom. A late-nineteenth-century front porch, seven bays on the first story and three bays on the second, incorporates fine sawnwork including brackets, consoles, and friezes.
