ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY UNDER 200K NOTES
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.
ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
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?
