Double Porch Love! Circa 1860. Over 1 1/2 acres in North Carolina. $269,000

January 10, 2023

I love the double porches! This is a big house with over 3,500 square feet. This home was built in 1860. It is located on 1.63 acres in Chadbourn, North Carolina. The home features double front porches, some original hardwood floors, crown molding, wide baseboards and updated kitchen and baths. If it were me, I would try to undo quite a few of the past renovations and hope there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting. There is a detached garage on the property. Six bedrooms, two bathrooms and 3,728 square feet. $269,000
