NC fixer upper! $25,000 R. Craig Cornwall House, Circa 1922.

February 6, 2019

$25,000! Definitely a fixer upper and most likely a gut job on the interior. The R. Craig Cornwall house was built in 1922. Located on .26 acres in historic Weldon, North Carolina. This neo-classical revival home apparently has a sweeping staircase. Wish they had shown it! The home has a large sunporch on the side of the home. There is an original two car garage and wrought iron fence. The Roanoke River Trail is a ten minute walk from the home. Five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 3,120 square feet. $25,000

From the Zillow listing:


Endless possibilities! The R. Craig Cornwall House, c. 1919 is a wonderful Neo-Classical Revival home located in historic Weldon NC. Grand entrance with large center hall and sweeping staircase, 4 fireplaces, beautiful hardwood floors, Butler’s pantry and a large welcoming sunporch off the living room. This home is very impressive with monumental pedimented portico and paired Corinthian capitals and includes the original two-car garage , workshop and a beautiful wrought iron fence. Located less than 2 mi from I95 at Roanoke Rapids, the home is close to shopping, restaurants and even Starbucks. The beautiful Roanoke River is an easy 10-min walk. This fixer-upper will require an approved repair plan by December 2019 to meet inspector code standards (HVAC, plumbing and electrical). The heating systems in the house do not work. All of the square footage is unheated at the present time.
