Diamond in the Rough! Circa 1942 in North Carolina. $169,000

January 27, 2024

This house looks like a diamond in the rough! Lots of potential! The house was built in 1942. It is located on 1/2 acre in Hickory, North Carolina. The house features a covered side porch, hardwood floors, wide baseboards, built-ins and knotty pine. The kitchen and bathroom needs some work, but this house isn’t bad. There is a carport and that basement looks a tad creepy. Four bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,298 square feet. $169,000
