November 4, 2020

A true diamond in the rough! Only looks like cosmetic changes needed. Surprised at how big it is when looking at the side view! This home was built in 1910. It is located on .61 acres in Clinton, North Carolina. I love the landscaping in the backyard! There are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting. The house looks livable so one could work room to room. The kitchen has knotty pine cabinets. The home is situated in the College Street Historic District. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms and 3,200 square feet. $135,000
