From the Zillow listing:


This 1900 farmhouse in the center of Historic Oakwood was the former homestead of a large dairy farm right in the middle of Hickory! After a century or so later, this once grand old home is in need of a new lease on life. Offering a wrap-around front porch, original wood flooring, tall ceilings, wide millwork, and more, this charming old lady is sitting here waiting for you to come remodel her. The main level offers a large living room, open dining room, two bedrooms, hall bath, kitchen, laundry, and sunroom. The upper level has a den, two bedrooms, and a kitchenette/bath. The original tin shingle roof is still on the home, but does have a couple of active leaks. Some structural issues have been reviewed by an engineer and a plan of action has been proposed. Seller wishes to sell “as is” and has priced it accordingly. Some electrical, plumbing, and drywall updates have been done, water heater and gas furnace are updated.
