January 13, 2022

This is a big house with over 4,500 square feet! Love that wrap around porch! The Dr. Glenn house was built in 1905. It is located on .46 acres in Gastonia, North Carolina. The house seems a bit pricey to me considering the amount of work it needs, but it does have original features. There is a large wrap around front porch, original hardwood floors, wainscoting, pocket doors, crown molding, original mantels and wide baseboards. Dr. Glenn and four other doctors founded the first hospital in Gastonia, North Carolina. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms and 4,667 square feet. $225,000
