July 16, 2019

From looking at the exterior I thought, gee, this one’s going to need a lot of work. Part of it is looking a little crooked, but it might just be the porch roof. So the interior was pleasantly surprising! This home was built in 1881. It is located on .75 acres in Statesville, North Carolina. It is situated in historic downtown. There is a large wrap around porch and beautiful hardwood floors! Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,352 square feet. $114,900 New price: $104,900!
