    I love these well built interwar homes and this one could be very nice. I love the 1960’s flower motif on the basement floor. The rooms are a decorator’s dream with good proportions and nice woodwork/fireplace mantels. My dad practiced medicine in Hamlet (we lived a few towns over) – it’s a nice little town, kind of in the middle of nowhere, which is a good thing in my opinion. It has a very cool old train station that was still in use when I would come home for Christmas, but was moved across the street and turned into a museum in the aughties.

    here’s a link showing before and after pics.

    I almost prefer the pre-rehabbed version, which I know is perverse.
    BTW, this makes me feel old. 🙁

    So surprised why this house hasn’t been snatched up. It has so much going for it. Lots of house and land for the money with a little elbow grease. If I was looking to move to that area in town, I would certainly look at this one!

    This house sits on a HUGE lot in an attractive neighborhood.

    I see nothing seriously wrong with it. And the price seems to reflect the issues.

    Love the pink bath. I would restore that. Ditto for the original bathroom.

      Apologies for delayed reply – my own house keeps distracting me!

      It is indeed a HUGE lot, which is why the house is actually not *cheaper* than it is given the condition. While Hamlet is kinda central nowhere, it’s also centered everywhere. 2 hours to Charlotte or Raleigh or Columbia or beach… I’m loving this town and all the great old houses! Again – if anyone is serious, I can walk over and get more pictures!

        I think I may drive to Hamlet this weekend. I am totally smitten with this house and must see more. It really doesn’t look too bad. I will try to contact an agent when I get there.

    This is the kind of house that most “normal” people walk- no, RUN away from, but most of us here would LOVE to get our hands on this!! Wow!!

    I grew up not very far from Hamlet. It’s in a great location in Piedmont NC not far away from Pinehurst. Also near Town Creek Indian Mound. It was quiet wealthy near the turn of the century because of the railroad. One of my greatest adventures as a child was taking a Greyhound bus with my grandmother to visit my aunt in the mountains of NC. We traveled through Hamlet on to Rockingham and Charlotte on the way. I remember stopping in Hamlet to allow new passengers to board and my grandmother and I getting off the bus to get a coke and peanuts. We hurried trying not to take to long In fear of getting left by the bus in Hamlet.

    Hamlet has a picturesque quality to it that speaks of its wealth of the past. Being Native American and growing up in a predominantly Native community, Hamlet was the first all white/European town after leaving the county I grew up in. I always thought everyone there must be rich. Lol, I guess it appeared that way to a child anyway.

    I think I am in love with this house. I’m sure it would be we worth the effort. But I’m sure I would have to move without my husband. LOL No restoration for him. I can envision a most beautiful Christmas in that house.

    Shenzhen & SoCal,

    Always have to wonder why a seemingly fine property has no takers. I’m wondering if it has something to do with the property having that deserted look for too long. For example, why does it appear that there are red brick structural supports visible inside, yet the house faces are yellow/tan brick? And why the discolorations in the exterior rear of the house – some appearing as a segmented wall, and dark “stains” emanating on a bias from windows and the cellar door? Fire? And why no photo of the main stairway? Just oversight?

    This is a project house no doubt, but it should be brought back to life. I hope someone takes it in their arms and breathes life back into it, regardless of any extraordinary conditions which seem insurmountable. Maybe the 20%+ asking price reduction with move it. Something needs to happen before too long.
