August 17, 2021

This house could be so cute! Would love to sit and read the newspapers on the walls! Would be neat to preserve them somehow. The Arnold House was built in 1850. It is located on .45 acres in Roper, North Carolina. The house features a covered front porch, original wainscoting, chair rails and original windows. There is a metal roof on the home, but it appears to need some work. Three bedrooms and one bathroom. $49,500
