July 9, 2024

I love the fence in front of this house! This is a great town with a lot of great old homes. This house was built in 1901. It is located on .94 acre in Warrenton, North Carolina. The house features a large wrap around front porch, hardwood floors, pressed tin ceiling, wide baseboards, pocket doors, wainscoting and a nice staircase. The house could definitely use some color. The house looks livable, so one could easily work room by room. There is a detached two car garage and a huge backyard. Five bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,729 square feet. $225,000
