From the Zillow listing:


This house is what Old House Dreams are made of! While retaining the charming high-ceilings, fireplace mantles and chimneys, a built-in and character galore, this almost 100-year-old bungalow has an upgraded bathroom and kitchen, a new roof and gutters, interior and exterior paint, and is ready for its new owners. With two bedrooms and one bathroom, the massive lot – nearly unattainable downtown – is prime for home addition and guest house, increasing its value drastically. With some upgrades and work, this home will be loved for another hundred years.Millions of dollars of commercial real estate have been recently purchased in the Soda Pop District, making way for it to be one of the most walkable neighborhoods downtown. Hi-Wire Brewing, Folks Cafe, and the NorthSide Food Coop are just two blocks away. The home is only 11 blocks to Front Street and the Riverfront Pavillion music venue and 6 blocks to the Brooklyn Arts District. The block itself is comprised of owners and renters, new residents, and old. It is tight-knit and everyone knows each other. It’s a quick 20-minute drive to either Wrightsville Beach or Carolina Beach and 15 minutes to any large box store.With remodeled historic homes becoming increasingly rare, and unheard of under $200K, do not miss this opportunity to live in gem while gaining equity. It is time to love where you live! Race to this home before it’s gone!
