Sold. Unpainted woodwork in this NC mountain house. Circa 1935. $175,000

January 9, 2021

Love the unpainted woodwork in this North Carolina mountain house. This home was built in 1935. It is located on .31 acres in West Jefferson, North Carolina. The home feautres original hardwood floors, a sunroom, unpainted woodwork, a wood burning fireplace and built-ins. First thing I would do is rip that carpeting out and maybe some wallpaper remediation. There is a detached two car garage. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,796 square feet. $175,000

From the Zillow listing:


Your chance to own a piece of history in downtown West Jefferson! This classic, two-story house, comes not only with its own history, but yours in the making. The house has all of the fundamentals: the large covered front porch with columns that has a “southern” feel; the living room with a fireplace; a sunroom with wood and windows out the wah-zoo, and an additional fireplace to boot. Enjoy the large formal dining room, from yesteryear. There are two bedrooms and one bathroom on the main level, and then a short trek upstairs to two more bedrooms with dormers, and an additional bathroom. There is a carport that leads into a spacious foyer. There is also a two-car-garage with ample storage. You can walk right into downtown West Jefferson, where it is all happening right now. What do you want? Take-out lunches and dinners from numerous, excellent, places? A glass of wine at a wine-tasting? A crafted beer from your choice of two breweries? Locally made cheese from the one of the only cheese factories in North Carolina? Or, take a quick drive to Jefferson and enjoy its history and fine dining places. If you want this proximity to a vibrant town and want to renovate, please view it!
