From the Preservation North Carolina listing:


Ready for your cosmetic upgrades, the Historic Wall-Cardwell House, circa 1856, is a grand Greek-Revival two-story plantation house with massive columns made of curved brick and white masonry that sits on two acres. Heirloom boxwoods line the entry walkway. The interior is well-preserved with mantels and moldings that have been attributed to North Carolina antebellum Mastercraftsman Thomas Day. There are tall ceilings, large rooms and heart-pine flooring throughout most of the home. The house is being sold as-is with the kitchen and second bathroom needing updates. Cracked plaster and peeling wall paper will also need to be repaired. All of the windows have been replaced. The home has city sewer and water and there is a well for watering the garden and washing cars. A screened porch overlooks rolling pasture land where this is an additional 30 acres for sale. The three additional lots include one 5-acre parcel with a flowing spring and an old pond. There is also a 20-acre parcel that has an old tenant house that’s in disrepair.
