Old House Dreams: a former funeral home in North Carolina priced at $38,000 (but wait, there’s more …)Posted: May 30, 2014
This afternoon, I agreed to do four 10-hour graveyard shifts in a row next week. Consequently, I opted to NOT spend my evening writing part 2 of the series I started yesterday, The #paranormalhotel: what it looks like, who stays there, and how we make it work. (Part 1.)
Instead, Ogre and I made dinner together, then walked to the local bar to have a beer. After that, we caught up on our new favorite show, Fargo. Later, we visited the gym (30 minutes before closing time) to take a quick dip in the pool and soak in the hot tub for a few minutes.
Later still, after I tucked him into bed, I decided to relax and revisit a website I haven’t recently checked in on: Old House Dreams. I’ve posted about it before, but if you missed it, just know that this is a site where I can look at listings for, and pictures of, beautiful, creepy, old houses that need someone special to love them.
(Sadly, the only way that special person will ever be me is if I manage to become rich, because I am neither handy, nor willing to learn to be handy. I’d love to pay fine craftspeople fair wages to bring such places back to life though.)
Anyway, I stumbled across an interesting find tonight, and I thought I’d share. I did a little extra research on the property and discovered that the price is actually lower that that listed on OHD. It seems that all the listings are outdated, so I suspect it may have sold. I wish there were more pictures and descriptions, but pop over and have a look at this faded beauty:
Okay. I admit it: though there is potential in the house, it’s not as beautifully creepy as some I’ve seen. (Though that price is a bit of a stunner.) The thing that makes this particular home REALLY special is that …
it is the actual house that was dropped on Ruby Burke by the evil kids in Children of the Corn 2: The Final Sacrifice.
Now how much is it worth?
