This is one gorgeous old house under $50,000. Look at the lovely yard of this four-bedroom, two-bath Alabama historic home! A wonderful front door with sidelights and transom leads you into a spacious center foyer with hardwood floors, high ceilings and stunning staircase. Built-ins, original lighting fixtures, original doors and trim, clawfoot tub and multiple fireplaces cry out, “Buy me!” What is really amazing is that the kitchen is not a gut special. As you well know, usually kitchens in homes at this price point are either non-existent or worthy of being in a house of horrors. In fact, this updated kitchen looks like a keeper.
As per the realtor: “Circa 1840 Lockett-Martin home is remembered for being the site of the making of the Stars and Bars. This flag was designed by Nicola Marschall and sewn here under the direction of Mrs. Napoleon Lockett.
The home is an L-shaped two-story frame structure on 1 3/4 acres with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, 10-ft ceilings downstairs and 9.5-ft upstairs. Beautiful plaster medallions and heart pine floors are special features. On the National Register of Historic Places, located in the West Marion Historic District.”
