House of the Day: Pedigreed Colonial at Affordable Price


It's not often you get architectural pedigree and affordability rolled into one, but this $160,000 two-story center-hall colonial in Selma, Ala., seems to pull it off.

Designed by Alabama architect Frank Lockwood, the house's crown molding and artisan millwork spring from the same talent behind the historic Montgomery Federal Building, where in 1956 a district court determined that bus-seating segregation was illegal and in 1965 allowed a historic civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery.

Built in 1929, the 6,000-square-foot house seems to fit the down-home family ideal: It offers a two-car garage, four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a pool. Mom, dad and the kids could begin by taking care of its deficiencies in "Brady Bunch" unison -- they'd need to paint the house's exterior and interior, which are peeling, replace the kitchen floor, which is in disrepair, and service the pool, not used since 2008.

John Miller of Town & Country Real Estate of Selma has the listing.
