Livable NC Farmhouse on 5+ Acres Under $120,000

800 Sawmill Rd, Cedar Grove, NC 27231 $119,900


You don’t find too many homes with more than five acres at this price point around the Hillsborough area. My sister recently sold her tiny 1950s Hillsborough 800 square-foot ranch on a quarter acre for more than what this property is listed at. The town is really a lovely place with great architecture, beautiful scenery and a lively arts and culture scene.

Granted, this c. 1922 farmhouse needs a lot of work, but it offers so many original features for the old house enthusiast. Note the original fireplace mantel, doors, trim and beadboard. I spy a couple of antiques that I wouldn’t mind having, too.

You could have a hobby farm here, or purchase an additional 26 acres for a full-fledged operation.


Great opportunity for charm not seen today. 8.2 miles from downtown Hillsborough. Currently livable with a little work. Highest and best use would be to restore this 1922 Farmhouse to its original glory and create a working farm. 2.65 acre lot next door (808 Sawmill) and 26 acre lot (824 Sawmill) are available as well. Upstairs bedrooms & sitting area are large & have wood stove spots. Original siding is in good shape for the most part – just needs to be scraped/painted. Looking for your labor of love?
