What an absolute treasure this house is! Overlooks the river from all sides! The great thing about Hertford is it is not in a flood zone! I have friends that are directly on the water and do not need flood insurance! The Creecy-Skinner-Whedbee House was built in 1775. It is located on .34 waterfront acres in Hertford, North Carolina. This house has a lot of original features. There are original hardwood floors, mantels, wainscoting, built-ins, and vintage light fixtures. I am seeing some water damage on some ceilings. Love the screened in upper porch. Hertford is such a quaint town! Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,826 square feet. $265,000 New price: $259,000

From the Zillow listing:


Hertford’s earliest surviving house believed to be constructed in 1775 weatherboard cladding, gable-end roofs, double-tier porches, and exterior-end chimneys, the Creecy-Skinner-Whedbee House holds so much history and character while overlooking the river from all sides! This beauty has remained in the same family for all of these years & is now looking for new owners to continue the memories while making it your own! HUGE rooms, unbelievable storage, 3 bathrooms, gorgeous hardwood floors, 3rd floor, downstairs bedroom, natural gas, corner lot, detached garage & remains in EXCELLENT condition!
