Living History

001The Historic District of Gastonia: Known for its charm and character, the Historic District offers an eclectic mix of single-family homes available in a wide variety of architectural styles and price ranges.  Those familiar with Rodi will appreciate the ability to walk there from this address.  912 Gibbons St. is nicely tucked away on a dead-end street, and makes you feel as though you could disappear into the privacy of the .4 acre, flat, heavily shaded lot.  This is, in part, what the Historic District is all about–trees that you cannot buy elsewhere.  Not because you don’t have the money; you simply don’t have the time.  The home was originally built in 1915, and many of these trees have undoubtedly grown up alongside it.

At the very accessible price point of $109,000, the 3 bed/2 bath home is completely move-in ready.  The kitchen and both full baths have been remodeled, and other updates such as a new roof will put your mind at ease about any of the possible downsides of buying an older home.  Not to worry–this isn’t a “new house,” either–original hardwood floors and an ornate fireplace mantel evoke the past and the home’s true heritage.  A unique floor plan offers the possibility of 2 master suites, along with a tiled sitting room off the living room  (not included in HLA) with many potential uses.  A detached, 2-car garage/shop in the rear could be both the setting for many projects and a project in and of itself.  The possibilities are limitless.  Make Gastonia’s past your future.
