This circa 1900 Carpenter Gothic had me from the first hello. Look at that fretwork! It sits on a quarter acre corner lot opposite the open grassy field of a school, in the historic district of Tarboro, NC. Great front porch, crown moulding, arched doorway, beautiful mantel, wainscoting and several original lighting fixtures! From the photo of the pink room with that fabulous enamel kitchen table, you have a peek-a-boo view of (what I assume is the bathroom) black and white tile flooring.
Here’s what the realtor has to say. “BEAUTIFUL HOME IN NEED OF REMODELING LOCATED IN THE HISTORIC DISTRICT OF TARBORO. 3 OR 4 BEDROOM, PARLOR,FORMAL DINING, EAT IN KITCHEN,PORCH, CORNER LOT.”

Call me a fixer upper fanatic. My husband and I have owned and restored a 1910 Folk Victorian on Long Island, an 1880's farmhouse on 15 acres in Schoharie County, New York, and a 1915 American Foursquare in beautiful Cape May, New Jersey. We currently live part-time in Huntington Beach, California, and are working on our 1930 retirement bungalow in Indiana. Old houses touch our souls.
