Love this exterior! Great wrap around porch. This home was built in 1900. It is located on .52 acres in Cleveland, North Carolina. It is situated in the heart of downtown. The family room does have a drop ceiling, but the listing states that the original ceiling is underneath. The upstairs of the home was closed off years ago by the elderly owner. The original staircase is hidden behind what looks like a closet door. The upstairs is like a time capsule. Original hardwood floors and bead board walls. The upstairs is not included in the square footage of the home. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,784 square feet. $259,900

From the Zillow listing:


Beautiful turn of the century historic home in the heart of downtown Cleveland, lovingly maintained!  Expect to be impressed at the love and care that has gone into this home as you walk around the exterior.  Very few homes this age have been taken this well care of, with mainly just cosmetic updates needed inside.  Family room has a drop ceiling but original ceilings are underneath and are over 10′ tall (see master bedroom up front for an example).  Upstairs was closed off years ago by the elderly owner, but existing staircase is behind a wall (looks like a closet door) and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time when you view the upstairs, also with its high ceilings and beadboard walls.  Approx. 1400 sf upstairs not included in HLA – not heated/cooled. Upstairs also needs electrical updates.  It literally has been closed off for decades.  Huge 30×40 detached garage, hand-made elevator off back deck works.  Enjoy the views of quaint downtown from the wrap around front porch.
