May 20, 2018

I love this! You can tell flooding must have been an issue in the past as everything is raised and that looks like new foundation. Located on 1.03 acres in Merritt, North Carolina. The “Whorton Homeplace” was built in 1915. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,214 square feet. $199,500

From the Zillow listing:


A marvelous opportunity to own an iconic and iconic waterfront residence in Whortonsville! A premier corner location at the headwaters of Coffee Creek (a small tributary of Broad Creek) with a setting of scenic gentility. The ”Whorton Homeplace” has two stories of lovingly restored and updated living space. From the large and sunny country kitchen (with attached breakfast porch), through the living room and any of the four bedrooms, to the wide front porch, you’ll be impressed by the character and condition! New vinyl siding was installed in 2017. The yard is gracious, with several outbuildings, magnificent mature trees, a circular drive and shady relaxing picnic spots by the creek. History,style & modern convenience combined as an exceptional value…Please see to fully-appreciate!
