From the Zillow listing:


Wonderful historic home located less than 2 blocks from the Town Square and Pender County Courthouse. This gem of a property has so much charm and character with original details that could never be replicated in a modern home. The house sits on an enormous well-manicured lot. Subdivision may be possible. (ask for details) Family home for generations. The love and care invested into this property for over 130 years is evident. Huge wrap around porches on the front and side and a private deck off of the rear of the house. Sidewalks and walk-able to everything in the downtown historic district. Newer upper roof and 2 unit HVAC (1 is a gas pack) that are approximately 5 years old. There is a bedroom on the main level and 4 more upstairs. According to the town planner the house has been identified as an historic property and could possibly become certified through the state. Home could use some updates and improvements but up until recently was continuously lived in. Rare opportunity to own a home of such character. It is ready for new owners to continue the legacy and at the same time make it their own. Nice and high lot – sellers said no flooding during Florence. Some furnishings are original to the property and could possibly be purchased separately by the buyer(s) of the house. Across the street from the town Library. House was originally built in the 1880’s with a significant addition occurring in the early 1900’s -plans for this expansion are hanging up in house. Wood floors, high ceilings, 3 fireplaces, plaster walls and wonderful wood molding are just a few of the many features this special property possesses. Porch swing does not convey.
