Monticola, a Greek revival mansion located in Howardsville, Virginia, was built in the 1850s for Daniel James Hartsook, a merchant, a banker, and a 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 end of the house. Monticola remained in the Nolting family into the 20th century. The estate has changed hands several times since then.
Dunterry LCC acquired the home and developed 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 102 acres or several other acreage combinations up to 292 acres.
