Under $75K Thursday ~ Save This Old House on 3.83 Acres in Mooresville NC $75K ~ Sold


Save this old house. In celebration of National Preservation Month, OHU50K presents this old farmhouse that needs a savior with a fat wallet. Originally a farmhouse with much more acreage, this c.1875 house now sits on 3.83 beautiful rural acres. The middle section with the chimney appears to be the part built in 1875 with the other sections later additions.
The structures need significant work, but what a beauty this could be. I don’t know about you, but I get a warm, tranquil feeling viewing the photos of the grounds. Plus, the property is about a 35-minute commute to Charlotte and 25 minutes to Salisbury. My daughter earned her degree from Catawba College in Salisbury, and it is a wonderful town with eclectic shops, restaurants and architectural gems.
