I would love to buy an old historic house but I realize it can be a money pit. There are so many beauties across the country dirt cheap because no one is willing to take a chance on them.
This one was built in 1865, sits on a hill and overlooks a beautiful historic downtown area. It's too huge for me at 3600 ft but the inside is still almost all original with a winding staircase. All wood work is original as well as the fireplaces. It even has a butlers hall. Asking price is $49,000. Maybe some day I'll take a leap and buy one when I retire and spend the rest of my life making it beautiful again.
