Need a weekend project? Here are two fixer-uppers we’ve been obsessing over this week.

This beautiful early 19th century home is for sale and in need of major restoration. It is individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places as “The Josiah Crudup House.” While recent water damage from to a leaking roof has wreaked havoc on the floors and ceilings, the house retains most of its original architectural details and would be a restorer’s dream!
 

The Details

 
4680 sqft, Lot Size: 3.06 acres / Zoning: R-30
$94,000
Circa 1830’s

The Josiah Crudup House is an architecture-lover’s dream and is only 45 minutes from Raleigh or Durham! This rare, exquisitely detailed early 19th century house retains its early tripartite form and lavish yet refined ornament. The central block of rooms flanked by the wing rooms showcase richly detailed woodwork and decorative paint, while the later additions provide ample room for contemporary uses including kitchen and baths. Dramatically sited on high ground off US 1, the Josiah Crudup House is an easy commute to Raleigh or Durham and only 20 minutes to Kerr Lake.

This 1931 Tudor home is straight out of a fairy tale! Not sure the exterior could be more charming- overgrown vines and all. Inside is a bit of a different story – someone needs to rescue it from the pink carpeting and wood paneling! For the right price and a lot of work, this home could be the setting for your own happy ending!
 

The Details

 
3 Beds, 4 Baths, 1775 sqft
$99,900
Circa 1931
Listing courtesy of Coldwell Banker West Shell

Rachael_MeyerinkAUTHOR RACHAEL MEYERINK
Rachael Meyerink resides in Sioux Falls, SD and is a Midwestern girl, born and raised. To her, “home” feels like sun shining through windows paned in wavy glass, an extra sweater on cold winter days and a window fan humming in the background in the heat of summer. In short: home feels like an old house. She and her husband have owned three such houses in their 15 years together- a 1923 American Four Square, a 1960s ranch and finally, an 1889 Queen Anne listed on the National Register of Historic Places. By day she works as a pediatric dietitian, and on nights and weekends, rehabs her old house with her husband. Her three children, yellow lab, ginger cat and five chickens complete their family. She keeps an online journal of her old house rehab adventures at myqueenanne.wordpress.com.
