I am offering for sale my beautiful Victorian house in Elizabeth City, 50 miles from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This is a large house (3,800 square feet). It is very solidly built, with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, parlor, kitchen and dining room. The upstairs bedroom has an additional room (like a sun room.) You can live in the downstairs portion of the house and rent the upstairs for enough money to pay the mortgage (depending on your mortgage loan). The bedrooms are all currently rented. Rent for the all of the bedrooms upstairs is $1,700.00 per month.The house has a lovely view of the Pasquotank River, is on a quiet corner with a double lot. It is in good condition but needs a little TLC, such as painting on the outside and caulking. Most inside rooms have been painted. There is no central air conditioning.If you don't desire to rent out the bedrooms, the house is wonderful for a large family. The first floor has a very large living room with 10 windows (lots of light), a gas fireplace and French doors into the parlor. There is nice kitchen with eating space. a parlor, bathroom and separate dining room and one bedroom. The stairs to the second floor are beautiful with a rounded stair case at the top. There is a laundry room upstairs with a washer and dryer.The house has a completely floored attic with a octagon shaped room with a steeple on top. that looks out over the entire area. There is a lot of additional space for more rooms to be added if desired.There are two front entrances and a large carport beside the house. The house is in walking distance to our charming town or city area, with antique shops, art center, museum, restaurants and shops. There are two or three elementary schools, two middle schools and two high schools in Elizabeth City.

My Notes: Craigslist find! This house is not listed ANYwhere else; hence the Street View screencaps below. I think he's asking a *bit* much considering no HVAC at all; but it is near the coast. Check your floodplane insurance rating for this one. Interesting cornices over the windows on the turrets. I'm going to list another Victorian on the same street next, so I would guess built around the same time (1900-1915); interesting comparison.
