Such a unique house. It is a federal style house combined with a Williamsburg style house. The Hurst-Pridgen house was built in 1830 in Warsaw, North Carolina. The houses were conjoined in 1967. The house stayed with the original owner’s family until 1967. There is a private large screened in porch on the back of the house. And this is a large home! Five bedrooms, three and a half baths, and 3,847 square feet. $180,000

From the Preservation North Carolina listing:


Own a piece of history that has both charm and architectural perfection. In 1967 the new owners moved a Federal-Greek Revival historic home built in 1830 and conjoined it with a Williamsburg style home in Warsaw. The following information was excerpted from The Historic Architecture of Warsaw: ” A simple Federal I House with a one-story shed extension across the back, the structure exhibits elements of Greek Revival styling in the full façade shed porch and the reeded pilasters between the front door and its adjacent three paneled sidelights.” The house remained with the original owner’s family until 1967, when it was relocated by Dr. Mett B. Ausley.
The home features hardwood flooring throughout, has 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, living room, music room, office/study, dining room, and a large storage room that could be converted into awesome laundry room. There is also a large private screened in back porch.
