Love the views from this house! That’s quite a rocking chair front porch and they have about 20 of them on there to prove it! 🙂 This home was built in 1926. It is located on one acre in Franklin, North Carolina. The home has some original hardwood floors and original 6 panel doors. There are some bead board ceilings and tongue and groove ceilings. Some updating has been done, but it could use a bit more. Rip out the carpet, work on the kitchen some, but not a bad price for the location. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,009 square feet. $249,900 New price: $239,900
