Pretty house! Love the front porch. This home was built in 1900. It is located in Newton, North Carolina. I think I would do some carpet remediation with the green carpet. Tall ceilings, hardwood floors downstairs, big windows and two porches. Within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the local library. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,760 square feet. $195,000

From the Zillow listing:


Lovely 2 story home with charming craftsmanship throughout. You know how people on HGTVâs House Hunters always say that they want character, but they never seem to find it? Well, this home is full of beautiful, historic character. Built in 1900, this home has everything for people who love older homes are looking for! Tall ceilings complement large rooms with huge windows, and the built-ins are in beautiful condition. Real hardwood floors add richness to the home with its extra dining room and beautiful foyer. However, character does not mean quirky or inconvenient. The home is family friendly with a designated playroom and a spot for a nursery outside of the first-floor master suite. Two porches are so practical, and the quiet street means that children playing outside have space and safety to play the day away. The area of this home is also ideal, and Newton is a wonderful city.  Enjoy being just a short stroll from restaurants, shopping, the library, and community theatre. Enjoy!
