April 6, 2019

This home was built in 1900. It is located on 1.06 acres in Robersonville, North Carolina. I love the exterior style and that front porch. I am not feeling the interior too much on this one. Think I would have to do some undoing of past renovations. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 4,000 square feet. $200,000
