Cottage in Need of TLC
This home is located in Wilson, NC and is selling for a mere $5000. Ready for someone to restore and love. Built circa 1903 and typical of Wilson’s modest turn-of-the-century Victorian cottages, this L-plan frame house was apparently built as rental property for J. T. Williams, the proprietor of a dry good store.
The house is sheltered beneath a cross gable roof with elaborate cut-out louvers enframed by returning boxed cornice. The small front (northwest), chamfered post-supported porch has lost its balustrade.
The rooms in the house include a living room, dining room, kitchen, one bath and two bedrooms. The house needs extension work in the rear exterior which could be an asset if wanting to add on to the structure making way for a new kitchen and an additional bath. Many of the historic features are still intact including four fireplaces.
The house is not livable in its present condition. State historic tax credits are available.
