Amazing Fretwork! Love the old picture! Circa 1850 in Tennessee. $320,000

November 22, 2021

That is some amazing hand carved fretwork! Haven’t ever seen any like that before! This home has been in the same family for over a century and it’s like a time capsule inside. This home was built in 1850. It is located on .55 acres in Cross Plains, Tennessee. The home features hand carved fretwork, tall ceilings, original mantels, beautiful front doors, floor to ceiling windows, vintage light fixtures and a sunroom. I’m not familiar with this area, but the price seems a bit steep to me. This home has been used as a business in the past, but it is zoned residential. Three bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,998 square feet. $320,000
