Talk about porch goals! Circa 1865. Two acres in Tennessee. $459,000

December 24, 2023

How about those porches! Would be a fun house to decorate. The house was built in 1865. It is located on two acres in Fayetteville, Tennessee. Not a fan of some of the flooring inside, but the house does have nice features. The home features double front porches, hardwood floors, stained glass windows, vintage light fixtures, wide baseboards, chair rails, built-ins and original mantels. The kitchen could use some work. The sink looks odd. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 5,083 square feet. $459,000
