July 14, 2019

If that gray building is the garage, I don’t see how it can hold 18 cars. This home was built in 1892. It is located on .42 acres in Troy, North Carolina. Situated near the Uwharrie Mountains. Part of the home was used as the town post office. This house has been in the same family since 1910. There is a wine cellar in the basement. The listing says the library is fully stocked with antique books, so I’m assuming they will convey with the home. Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 5,135 square feet. $599,000
