Fixing up an old house is such a rewarding project. We highly recommend embarking on an old house journey. It’s the best labor of love! If you’re looking to polish up an old gem without breaking the bank, take a look at these homes that are priced right and full of potential.

This Italianate c. 1877 with bracketed cornice and low hip roof began as a smaller single-family home and is presently configured as two five-room and one six-room apartment. The first floor right side has been gutted back to the studs showing the progression of construction through the years. Nearly all mantels are present in the home including a late Victorian over-mantle with mirror intact. Draft architectural plans call for conversion to a duplex, but you decide!

In DeValls Bluff, a small little town about an hour away from Memphis, there’s this charmer. There is tons of dark, beautiful wood detailing but the showstopper is the grand staircase. This one could be incredible with hardly any improvements!
