Former Train Master’s House, Circa 1900. One acre in North Carolina. $85,000

June 4, 2022

Fixer upper alert! This house was originally the home for the train master. The home was built in 1900. It is located on .97 acres in Eagle Springs, North Carolina. The home features double front porches, hardwood floors and wood walls. I feel like they are asking a bit too much for this. Not sure what the property values are like in Eagle Springs and basically you are paying for the lot. But there is some good history with this one. Three bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,820 square feet. $85,000

Are you ready for your own fixer upper?! Located behind the post office in Eagle Springs, this large lot (nearly an acre!) has a 1900 home ready for someone to bring their vision!

It has no electrical wiring inside the home, no plumbing, and no HVAC. There are electrical hookups currently on the property, there is also a well and a septic tank that was re-certified in 2018 but that recertification has since expired. *Square footage is an estimate, buyer to verify.
