Six acres in Warrenton, NC. Only two miles to Lake Gaston! Circa 1780! $69,000

Would love to know the history on this one! Asking around to a couple of groups I’m in. This home was built in 1780! Located on six acres in Warrenton, North Carolina. It is situated only two miles to Lake Gaston, and only nine miles to Kerr Lake. Both are two of NC’s best lakes! This home has original hardwood floors, bead board walls and bead board ceilings. Needs a lot of work, but with the age of this, just imagine the history! And I love the old outhouse still on the property. And just for the record, the house does have running water and a working bathroom. Two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 2,100 square feet. $69,000

From the Zillow listing:


If you like old houses and have some skills in fixing things, this is a great place for you. The tax office says this house was built in 1780. The main part of the house is made of hand cut logs. It is 2 miles to the Lake Gaston Hawtree boat ramp and 8 miles to Kerr Lake Dam. There is an old barn 24×24 and a 22×52 pole barn. This property has 6 acres and would be easy to set up for horses. Additional 5 acres could be available. The house has running water and working bathroom. Wood stove for heat. This land is flat and out in the country with beautiful trees and grassy area, quite and peaceful. This Home is sold Where Is As Is. MUST SEE TO APPRECIATE.
