If walls could talk! This 1885 historic farmhouse is located in Pitt County convenient to Farmville and Greenville amenities. As true with many historic homes, the rooms just go on and on. The carpet has been cut away in most rooms to reveal the original wood floors beneath. You can tell how beautiful they will be once they are exposed again. Inside features include: a large living room in front with center hall going to an enclosed back porch. On both sides of the living rooms are bedrooms and bath in center. A large room in back reveals the later kitchen and dining room. The door frames, mantles and porches all round out the original interior architecture.

One-acre lot will be surveyed out of farm before closing.
