January 13, 2021

How about those porches! This home was built in 1898. It is located on .7 acres in Timpson, Texas. Some work was started on this house, but it definitely needs more. There are original hardwood floors, french doors, and unpainted woodwork. The home has updated electric and plumbing. With the square footage it seems hard to believe there are only two bedrooms. Two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 4,028 square feet. $109,900

From the Zillow listing:


Look at this Amazing find. This is a 1898 built home that is ready for her new buyer to finish repairs to bring back her old glory, like Noah from the Notebook. Starting with a front porch to enjoy just a glass of sweet tea, relax, and take in this small town life. The lower level of this 4000+sqft home features all original wood from floor to ceiling, baseboards, doors, stairs and banisters, 2 bedrooms, a formal living room, formal dining room, updated full bath with claw foot tub & shower, and completely updated kitchen. The lower level also offers 2 fireplaces, along with the laundry room, updated electrical, updated plumbing along with alarm system to finish off this amazing find. The second level is totally up to your imagination. It offers 4 rooms and plumbing for a bathroom. Second floor also has 2 fireplaces, along with 2 doors to 2 upper level balconies . This is a must see for any investor or historian ready to make a good investment. I think I see a B&B Shed can be purchased but not part of original listing
