Deal of the Day! Walter Thomas House, Circa 1850’s. Almost 2 acres in NC. $149,000

April 21, 2020

Quite a deal! This is the Walter Thomas house, believed to have been built between 1850-1860. It is located on 1.71 acres in Leasburg, North Carolina. The home has a newer tin roof. There is a Thomas Day mantel in the library. This really is a diamond in the rough. The house needs a better heat source as it is currently heated by gas logs. But that price is excellent! Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 3,235 square feet. $149,000
