In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m just a wee bit obsessed with cheap, GORGEOUS old homes. So when a CIRCA reader (thanks Bridget!) sent me this beauty in New Bern, North Carolina, I had to share it! Lots of original details remain inside, PLUS it’s located in a national historic district. Who’s gonna snatch it up!?
