This was the first house built in the town of East Bend, North Carolina. I love the double porches and the unpainted woodwork inside! The Abner P. Smitherman home was built in 1890. It is located on .90 acres in East Bend, North Carolina. The home features double front porches, original hardwood floors, picture rails, exposed beams, bead board and a claw foot tub. There is a detached barn on the property. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms. $179,900
