Fixer upper alert! Needs a complete restoration, but it has some original features! This home was built in 1860. It is located on .66 acres in Scotland Neck, North Carolina. That is a quaint little town near the Slyvan Bird Center. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,918 square feet. $37,500

From the Zillow listing:


This circa 1860 historic home is in prime downtown location and right between business district and Sylvan Heights Bird Park.  Perfect setting for AirBnB or private home.   Yes, it needs a complete restoration but there are no restrictions or covenants attached to the restoration.  The woodwork inside is beautiful with richly stained beadboard ceiling in center hall, decorative door frame and transoms.   Wood floors are wonderful and feel solid in most places.  Rot on porches due to roof leaking has compromised some interior walls, can be fixed.  Restoration contractors available as well as classes to teach you how to ‘do it yourself’.  If you’d had a passion to restore a significant home, now’s your chance.   You’ll love this house and the town. No heat in the house.
