Sold – c.1850 Fixer Upper Greek Revival on 1.7 Acres in Milton, NC Under $33K – Save This Old House


Per Pres NC:

The Gordon-Brandon House may have been built c.1850 by Field Gordon who owned a local saloon. In 1950 it was purchased by Hunter and Annie Brandon. Mr. Brandon owned the Tire & Grill and Mrs. Brandon was a teacher. It was purchased by an absentee owner in 2000 and suffered several years of neglect. Happily, it was recently purchased by a local preservationist who has enlisted Preservation NC’s assistance to find someone to purchase and restore it to its former elegance.

Raised basement Greek Revival cottage on secluded wooded lot; one block from Milton commercial district and Thomas Day Museum (under consideration to become a new State Historic Site!); just minutes from the renowned Virginia International Raceway!

An unusual example of a uniquely Milton house type, the Gordon-Brandon House is a modest-scale raised Greek Revival cottage consisting of a brick lower level and a wood frame upper level containing the main entrance and ornamentation. Located at the end of N. Bridge (“Warehouse”) Street, the house is set near Country Line Creek on a secluded wooded lot in the town of Milton, famous for its Antebellum architecture and home to Thomas Day, renowned 19th century free black cabinetmaker. The Thomas Day House and Workshop may soon become a North Carolina State Historic Site. The Gordon-Brandon House is eligible for tax credits.

    Is Milton NC really close to Virginia International Raceway? I thought that
    was in Richmond VA. Or is this the NASCAR track in Bristol VA?

    As I read the comments above, I figured why bother leaving a question……it does not appear you’ll get a response.

    I am not the realtor. I respond to questions to which I know the answer, and leave open questions to readers who may know the answer. Also, some questions can simply and easily be researched by the questioner.
