Monticola, a Greek Revival Mansion located in Howardsville, Virginia, was built in the 1850s for Daniel James Hartsook, a merchant, banker and planter. In 1865, Union troops raided Howardsville and Monticola, but left the mansion undamaged. In 1887, Emil Otto Nolting purchased the estate. Nolting modified the portico and added a semicircular porch at the rear of the house. Monticola remained in the Nolting family into the twentieth century. The estate changed hands several times since then.
When Dunterry LLC acquired the home it was showing its age. Dunterry worked with Frazier Associates to develop a renovation plan that was approved by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. Dunterry was able to restore the original front porch design. A kitchen, bathrooms and closets were added. The home is now available for purchase with 292 acres for $4,995,000.
