- 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2,750 square feet
- Price/square foot: $55
- Built in 1900
- Listed June 16, 2021
- Last sale: $31,625, March 2018 (see note below)
- Note: One of the most egregiously maimed historic homes in Greensboro
- Divided into three apartments
- The asking price is about five times the amount the owners paid in 2018. No exterior improvements appear to have been made, and no interior pictures are included in the listing.
- Online listings include misleading figures on the last sale. It was one of four properties sold as a package for $127,500. No individual prices were broken out. County property records show the price as $31,625, the most appropriate figure under the circumstances.
- The original owner was Jacob W. Lindau, secretary-treasurer of the Southern Finishing & Warehouse Company at Proximity. The National Register nomination for the district describes the house as Queen Anne-Colonial Revival.
