    Very doable for that price. Stunning house across the street. Glad to see the aluminum porch awnings, in the 2013 view, have disappeared. Enfield is an old community with several Historic Register buildings. There may be grant money to fix her. Hasn’t been remuddled and with that new roof most of the water damage should have stopped. It’s between Rocky Mount and Roanoke Rapids, just off I-95. My parents went there every year to buy bulk peanuts.

    Definitely a fixer upper, but not beyond help and a nice neighborhood judging by streetview.

    If this house is structurally sound, although a major job, it could be rescued. Several nice mantels that could be stripped and re-finished. That one has a beautiful, decorative mirror which could easily be re-silvered and be a show piece. One concern is the paneling. Speaking from experience, many folks used to put up paneling as an inexpensive way to hide cracked plaster. For a purist who would want to maintain the plaster, this could potentially be a difficult and expensive undertaking. Would be worth it though if done properly.

      It also looks like they have been ripping out some walls. I would need a structural engineer to see if they have compromised part of the structure. We seem to not be getting much in the way of foundation information. Can’t remember how many homes I have passed up because people focused on taking off paint and it needed an entire new foundation.

    I like this house. It appears all the good stuff is still intact, just buried under years of bad taste. Looks like another variation of this house is a few doors down at 100 W. Burnette.

    Is it just me, or is that mirror smiling at all of us Old House Dreamers?

    As others have commented, the house appears to have retained many of its original period details. I’m not sure what is behind the reconfigured walls although the first thought that comes to mind is that someone decided to remove partitions put up when the house might have been in rental use. However, other removed items as in photo No. 13 from the top appear to be more of an effort at remodeling. A full inspection and evaluation would be best but given the apparent nice neighborhood surroundings and exceptionally low price, this one looks like a real old house bargain. I would think this house was quite stylish in its day and housed a middle class family. The second staircase would have been mostly for the servant/cook’s use and appears to be original as well. There may have been some stained glass or other art glass at one time but still, considering the very low price, a lot is offered. Just be prepared to roll up your sleeves and put in some sweat equity or hire an experienced (not a standard remodeler) contractor who understands what things are worth preserving in an old house. More than anything else, this Queen Anne style house simply needs lots of TLC. Post restoration, this could be a fine period home again.

    First thing is first – get that nasty paneling off the walls. Its a handyman’s job but she’s still in there.

    For that price, I wonder if this is a foreclosure.

    I think the first thing I would want to know is how much nearby houses in good condition are selling for.

    In the 3rd to last picture have they raised the floor or is that the way it is supposed to be? Seems part of the window is covered by the floor, but the floor seems original.
