April 11, 2018

Not kidding when I say this, but this is pretty close to absolute perfection! Even has original paint! The faux baseboards in the one room are original……to 1821! Those mantelpieces! Located on three acres in Stantonsburg, NC. That’s about an hour from Raleigh. Someone has taken great care of this house and made sure everything original was retained. This won’t last long!! Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 2,012 square feet.

From the Zillow listing:


Step back in time when you enter this restored and updated 1821 farmhouse on 3.15 acres surrounded by farm fields. This Federal period house has exceptional decorative details.

Authentically restored and updated in 2007: new standing-seam tin roof, heating, wiring and plumbing, septic system serving house and barn. Original paint, plaster and paneling. Chimneys restored; four working fireplaces, two with gas logs. Eight rooms with 3 bedrooms, one bath; front and back porches.
