Historic house to be given away free

Posted: Updated:
The house has 43 hundred square feet of charm and history, and it's all free. The catch is whoever takes it has to move it, which can be expensive.

"What we're looking for is a taker that owns some property, preferably in Pitt County of possibly in Beaufort County that's financially capable of taking on a project of this magnitude," said Claudia Deviney with Preservation North Carolina.

The house was built around 1910 and is located in Grimesland. In addition to paying to move the house, the new home owners would have to agree to preserve it.

"It's very important to save these buildings, especially buildings that have gotten to the point where there's really nothing else but to move them for them to survive," Deviney said.

The house has 6 bedrooms and two and half bathrooms, and has attracted potential takers from as far as Texas and New Hampshire.

Deviney says finding a historic house like this for free is extremely rare, and she hopes it can be saved before it's too late.

"It's just a beautiful house that's in good condition and really needs to be preserved," said Deviney. "It's part of Pitt County's history, and we like to say Pitt County built history and so that's why we, this is what we do."

If you're interested in the house, you can contact Claudia Deviney at 252-482-7455.
