Love the idyllic setting for this home! I can’t make out the house name on the placard out front, but this home was built in 1860. Located on 39.44 acres in Polkton, North Carolina. There is a covered front porch. When you enter the home there are original hardwood floors that have been refinished. The back of the house was renovated to make one story living for a retired couple. I’m not sure I particularly like that tile, but it could be changed. The property has a one car garage. There is also a large workshop that measures in at 4,000 square feet. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,483 square feet. $525,000
