one of my favorite parts of the week magazine is a section they call “best properties on the market,” which shows a handful of homes fitting a certain category (southern plantations, homes that look like castles, etc). but the best part is the “steal of the week,” which are often homes that have surprisingly low prices. one that was featured recently is the angus h. currie house in maxton, north carolina — $180,000. you couldn’t buy a cardboard box for $180,000 in los angeles, and this place is over 4,000 square feet.
