I love those floors! This house really has a lot of potential. Hersey Manor was built in 1900 in High Springs, Florida. High Springs is located outside of Gainesville, Florida. The home has original floors, doors, trim and even original door knobs and doorbell. Great claw foot tub! Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,027 square feet. $158,000 New Price: $149,900

From the Zillow listing:


Dreaming of your own piece of history? The “Hersey Manor,” built in 1900, is a fabulous two-story house with so much original charm still intact, including the original hardwood floors, doors, trim, doorknobs, doorbell, etc. 12 foot tall ceilings give each room a palatial feel; the original claw foot tub upstairs exudes the vintage allure that so many are trying to replicate these days even in newer construction. The bedrooms downstairs offer ample closet space as well. It’s an easy stroll from here to downtown High Springs, and since it is zoned C-2, you could make this your main residence, a rental property, or even a site for a business/office space. The possibilities are endless, as are the tales these walls could tell of days gone by.
