Originally built in 1887, added on 1970 and updated 1992, living space is 4,300 square feet, with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms on a .5-acre lot with a 2.5 card detached garage and an additional 1 car detached garage. It’s located in the center of the city, but the city is small and quiet. You have all your needs nearby. Walk across the street and go to the gym. After your workout walk around the block and grab a coffee, then take a quick dip in 9 1/2-foot pool before heading to work.

What isn’t in the town you can quickly get in Smithfield just 15 minutes up the road. Additionally, Raleigh is a short 45-minute drive. The ocean (Wilmington and Surf City) are less than 2 hours away.
