Great opportunity! Sweet Tea Bed and Breakfast in North Carolina! Over one acre. $450,000

August 8, 2023

This is a great opportunity for someone! I have a bit of a connection to this beautifully restored home! The current owners found this house on Old House Life! At the time the house was in a serious state of neglect. It was missing parts of the roof, had missing floors and so many issues. Their plan was to restore it and turn it into a bed and breakfast. I have stayed in it twice and can attest to how beautiful it is. The pictures do not do it justice. Sweet Tea Bed and Breakfast was built in 1920. It is located on 1.24 acres in Conover, North Carolina. The home features a beautiful wrap around front porch, stunning hardwood floors, beautiful mouldings, porte cochere, wainscoting, vintage tiled bathroom and wide baseboards. Conover is a quaint town, not too far from Hickory, North Carolina. Trust me, you want to see this one in person. Keep it as a B&B or turn it back to single family. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms and 3,444 square feet. $450,000
