Landmark Restoration in Staunton’s Beautiful Downtown

landmark overhaul – not to be missed!

Meticulous restoration the Landmark, one of Staunton’s most visible and well-known homes. 10 yrs of vacancy almost brought her to her knees. Queen City Concepts tackled this project, and it took a year and a half to make her what she is today.

Extensive before and after photos are available below.

The main home of the Landmark is a 4 BR, 2.5 BA with gourmet kitchen, open floor plan, and 1st FL master. The upper level has 2 balconies off the front and rear BRs, plenty of closet space.

The full legal basement apartment is a state of the art 2 BR, 1 FB with laundry hook-up offering great monthly income.

See the list of improvements below.

Ther is a 7 YR tax abatement left that will save the buyer thousands.

Gorgeous property. Owner/Agent.


All shingles stripped from home, and siding re-built as necessary. Trim and doors totally replaced.


Foundation completely dug out and re-poured in sections, around the entire base of the home. Custom railroad tie retaining wall built inside the garden plot yard.


New standing seam metal roof installed.


Brand new HVAC/Heat systems installed. 14 Seer units and high-efficiency Lennox gas furnace. Completely new ductwork throughout.


Pro-active radon/moisture barrier lined the crawl space. No sign of radon, just a precaution.

Any sheetrock and plaster were gutted, and total re-framing, re-configuring of the layout was done. There is new sheetrock throughout.
