Fixer Upper Alert! The Green Dry House, Circa 1901 in North Carolina. $114,900

December 19, 2022

Love the old picture they included. The listing says it has a new roof. The Green Dry House was built in 1901. It is located on .53 acres in Albemarle, North Carolina. Feel like they are asking a bit too much for this home. It needs a lot of work. The home features a large wrap around front porch, hardwood floors, wainscoting and bead board. The listing states there was a fire 15 years ago. $100,000 was spent in restoration, but due to health and funding the project stopped. $114,900

From the Zillow listing:


Diamond in the rough! Following a fire in the interior(approx. 15 +/- years ago), approximately $100K was spent toward restoration. Following that, work stopped due to health and funding reasons. There was a new roof placed on the home at that time, which has the majority of the home in ‘pretty good order and dry’! Great project for the right party! Approx. 5 minute walk from the new Pfeiffer College Center for Health Sciences Campus. Great apartment rental or single family potential! Killer views of downtown Albemarle from the 2nd level! Home is an ‘open pallet/floor plan’ waiting for a new heartbeat! Following partial restoration, there are no visual identities with respect to baths, kitchen, etc. Home has the potential for 4 BR(s)up, 1 or more down. Comments on the tax record place the original construction year as 1885, approx. 1901 may be more accurate … Don’t let this opportunity get away!
