March 6, 2024

Rustic charm and a pretty setting! The interior is interesting! The house was built in 1880. It is located on 3.36 acres in Sanford, North Carolina. The house features double front porches, hardwood floors, original mantels, super wide baseboards and a great kitchen sink. In the one room the baseboards almost look like they have been faux marbled. Would love to see inside that little building on the property. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms and 2,149 square feet. $325,000
