Perfect location for a Bed & Breakfast. Rare opportunity to become a steward of the historic Decker House, located on River Road in Fredericksburg. In the time of the Civil War, General Robert E. Lee used the Decker House to station troops in order to maintain his defense positions because of the high elevations that overlooked the Rappahannock River and Banks Ford. During the Battle of Fredericksburg, refugees fled the war-torn area and took shelter at the Decker House for safety. This beautifully preserved and renovated Historic 1838 Federal-style farmhouse sits on 1.74 acres in a scenic area by Motts Run Reservoir. The English basement with upgraded kitchen includes new granite countertops, cabinets, refrigerator, oven & dishwasher. Cozy up by the pellet stove on a chilly winter day with a good book, or enjoy the grounds during the spring and summer months. The remains of the old kitchen are still located on the property. The bathrooms and wiring have been upgraded, the home has been freshly painted. It features a metal roof and Mitsubishi ductless air conditioners keep the interior cool. There have been many articles written to document the colorful past of the Decker House, so if you are a history buff who is looking to own a piece of the past, this is the property for you!
