This c.1896 beauty is a for sale by owner home in Red Springs, NC (pop. 3,428). It sits on a corner lot opposite the beautiful Highlander Academy (see below). Known as the McRae House, James Arthur McRae (1888-1950) and his wife Lena lived here for decades. James served in WWI and later became an office manager for the lumber mill.

The home is one of the oldest houses in town and was originally built in 1895 by a local attorney.
