Porch goals! My favorite Wake Forest house!! Circa 1892 in North Carolina. $525,000

October 14, 2020

This has always been my favorite house in Wake Forest! Have driven past it for 20 years and always wanted to see inside it! This home was built in 1892. It is located on .51 acres in Wake Forest, North Carolina. This home is situated within walking distance to the quaint downtown area where you will find coffee shops, breweries and eclectic dining options. And can we talk about the porch! There are original hardwood floors, wainscoting, fretwork, and seven fireplaces. The kitchen was a bit of a downer for me. Feel like it needs something. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,390 square feet. $550,000 New price: $525,000
