This Storybook Home and Carriage House are Straight out of a Fairytale – and for Sale for Under $55,000!

Does anyone out there know the story with these two neighboring homes in Paragould, AR–on the market for just $55,000 and $30,000? Built in 1928 (I’m assuming together, as one appears to be the carriage house for the other), they seem to have been plucked straight from the pages of a storybook. The realtor’s description is blank, but if you happen to find out more details, please send them my way! Also, is that a tunnel connecting the two? How fun is THAT?!
