Diamond in the rough! All that bead board! Two acres in North Carolina. Circa 1923. $167,500

November 17, 2020

This house is a true diamond in the rough! So much unpainted bead board. This house was built in 1923. It is located on two acres in Peachland, North Carolina. The home has a large wrap around porch. There are original hardwood floors, french doors and solid wood doors in the home. The kitchen could use some updating, but I love the built-in china cabinet. All of the unpainted bead board upstairs is gorgeous. The current owners put a split HVAC system upstairs and the electric has been upgraded in the house. There is a detached stone garage with room above it on the property. There is also a wired cabin on the property that would make a nice guest quarters, office or man cave. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,880 square feet. $167,500

The upstairs is equipt with a newer Split HAVAC system Current owners have also replaced the hybrid Heat-pump in 2012, mini split system in 2017, and put in a 200 amp service to the home in 2008. The front porch decking was replaced in 2018 which ia perfect place to sit on some rockers and enjoy the afternoon. There is a wired shop/mancave on the property along with a very unique room over the stone 1 car garage. this is a great property for someone who can put their own stamp on it and make it their own.
