November 5, 2020

Love the double porches and that stained glass! This home was built in 1900. It is located on .76 acres in Cove City, North Carolina. The home is situated on Main Street in a small town out towards the coast of North Carolina. Only 25 minutes to New Bern, North Carolina. The house could use some undoing of past renovations. Rip up the carpeting, get rid of drop ceiling. Love the built-in in the kitchen eat in area. The home has a large lot with multiple outbuildings and a large pecan tree. I think I would install railings on the upper porch. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,140 square feet. $125,000
