If you love old towns with great architecture at its heart, then you’ll love Harrodsburg, Kentucky. Downtown is a treasure of wonderful buildings as Harrodsburg is considered the oldest city in Kentucky and has been touted as the oldest American permanent  settlement west of the Appalachians. The wonderful porch fretwork and great yard gives this century-old home curb appeal, and the recent $10,000 price reduction to $39,500 is appealing, too. Walk into a spacious foyer and you’ll immediately see hardwood floors and original doors and hardware. The bathroom and kitchen look workable, just waiting for some cosmetic updating. Imagine how the large rooms will look with your antiques dressing up the place! I don’t know if the train still runs, but I think the biggest drawback to this house is that railroad tracks are right across the street. In fact, they run across the front yards of the houses on the opposite side of the road.

Here’s what the realtor has to say. “Don’t miss this great deal! Historical home with charming character! As you enter the large foyer you will appreciate the space. The rooms are very spacious and inviting. You will notice a cozy fireplace in both the living area and master bedroom along with beautiful hardwood flooring. There is a full bath accessible via master bedroom as well as the den. There is a large dining area with built in cabinetry that could also serve as a 3rd bedroom. There is access to an additional upstairs space as well. While in the den area you can access the patio area which is perfect for entertaining. There is also access to the patio area from the kitchen which makes barbecuing easier. As you enter the patio area you will appreciate the large back yard which also includes a pear tree and an apple tree located behind the one car garage. The one car garage also has a side door which serves as an additional storage shed.”
