Sold. Deal of the Day! Double porches and waterfront community! Circa 1820 in NC. $149,000

May 3, 2022

Love the double porches! This is such a quaint waterfront community. I have many friends that own homes there and the great thing about Hertford, not a flood zone! I have friends with homes directly on the waterfront and they have never flooded! The Benjamin Berry House was built in 1820. It is located on .36 acres in Hertford, North Carolina. The home is situated just a couple of blocks from the waterfront. The house features double front porches, original hardwood floors, crown molding, ceiling medallions, solid wood doors and wainscoting. Hertford is going through a huge revitalization effort and we have considered purchasing property there and if I didn’t have my hands full here in Danville, I would seriously be considering this house. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Just had a $100,000 price reduction! $149,000
