I love that porch! This home was built in 1940. It is located on 1.55 acres in Lumberton, Mississippi. Love the wood detailing and the brickwork on the porch. Apparently there is an in-ground pool in need of repairs on the property. There are hardwood floors downstairs and carpeting in the bedrooms. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,767 square feet. $89,900 New Price: $69,900

From the Zillow listing:


Unbelievable Potential from the tip top of the roof all the way to the bottom of the intricate brick work under the porch! This home was built when true craftsmanship was forefront in construction.
