2 for 1: A heck of a historic deal in North Carolina

This exquisite 1858 Greek Revival in Historic Louisburg, North Carolina is listed for sale at $229,000. But at that price, the sellers thought they would throw in a bonus house out back:

The 18th century cabin in the back yard is all part of the deal. It is “unrenovated” and no pictures to show us the condition of the inside, but it looks like one amazing little museum piece from the outside…

(Look at the stone chimney!)

The main house is the main attraction, though.

Look at the SIZE of that antique mirror! Can you imagine what it weighs!?

The central hall – which appears to run the length of the house – front to back:

The kitchen is really interesting…

I think they did a superb job mixing the vintage elements with the modern amenities.

black farm-style kitchen sink – interesting choice. But I like it!

The vintage restoration is apparent in the bedrooms as well:

Gorgeous! The main house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in just over 2000 square feet.

Out in the yard, there is also a garden shed/chicken coop:

No word on when the shed was built, but it looks a bit newer than the main house, and the “old house out back”.

Gosh I would LOVE to see inside that old cabin!
