Fixer Upper


Beautiful rural area! The property is located on the South side of the Albemarle Sound in the agricultural area of Pea Ridge, this property is known as “The Arnold House.” Leary Beach is just down the road. I think the Arnolds have owned the house for the last few decades but reside at another address. Wouldn’t you love to read those newspapers on the wall? Old newspapers and other discarded paper were sometimes used as insulation in older homes.
I don’t know why, but when we tore up the avocado green wall-to-wall carpeting in our 1915 foursquare, we not only found old newspapers lining the hardwoods, but black adhesive that was a beast to remove. It was interesting to read some of the local news stories from the 1960s, however, while we worked.
