Victorian style home sits on 5+ acres on Grayson Co. farm land. This is a fixer upper just waiting for the right savvy buyer to restore her back to her glory days. There are some areas of this home that appear unsafe to walk on so enter with caution. The property lays well and has a beautiful stream running through it & beautiful mature shade trees. There is a well on the property to support the home, but there are also active springs. These majestic homes always had extra-large rooms and high ceilings, with a stately staircase and foyer.
