This old house under $50,000 is listed by Preservation of Wilson and is actually just $20,000. Wilson offers an uncomplicated lifestyle in an ideal location of North Carolina. Only 40 minutes from Raleigh and two hours from coastal beaches, the town boasts two colleges, a vibrant arts community and five historic districts filled with beautiful older homes on tree-lined streets. The House is a four-bedroom turn-of-the-century Queen Anne gem built in Woodard Circle, once one of Wilson’s most fashionable neighborhoods. It actually sits next to the Confederate Military Hospital No. 2 Museum, a North Carolina Civil War Trail stop.
After enjoying the wrap-around porch, you enter the house through a beautiful front door with sidelights and colored-glass transom. There you are greeted with a large foyer and fabulous staircase with a wall of paneled wainscoting. Three fireplaces and 12 rooms, including a small kitchen and 1.5 baths grace the first floor, while a spacious landing, two full baths and several large rooms are on the second floor. Note the multi-faceted gables, front Palladian window and side gable arched windows. Then consider the .6 acre yard. It really is a beauty.
The Woodard family lived in the home until 1922 and was later broken up into three rental apartments, then offices. It is now a great old house under $50,000 that is offered by Preservation of Wilson. Check out their site to view more photos of this home and additional great old houses to restore.
