Description

This imposing two-story, double-pile framed house offers a unique blend of southern charm with modern upgrades. Its historic ''T'' shape comes with a hip roof above the front portion and gables on either side. The home's fluted Corinthian columns create an amazing curb appeal. The seemingly endless wraparound porch serves its guests an opportunity for relaxation. Entering the home, you immediately encounter beautiful wooden floors, elegant wainscoting and dentil crown molding. The impressive new kitchen offers granite counter tops, light fixtures, new appliances and an island that serves as an ideal gathering place. Off the study, there is a bedroom with a newly-added kitchenette equipped with a sink, microwave, mini-fridge and stovetop. There are several bedrooms on the first floor, an oversized laundry room and a powder room. The stately stairwell with white wooden spindles leads to the second floor where you will find three more bedrooms including the primary. The bathrooms have tile throughout and new clawfoot tubs. The primary bath features double shower heads, two sinks and mirrors. A second story balustraded balcony is on the front and in the rear are the tympanums of the pediment. Venturing up another flight of heart pine treads to the third floor, you will find a carpeted area perfect for a recreational room. On one side of the home, there is a private screened-in porch with an astounding 16-person spa. On the other side, you will enter a private area surrounded by a new white vinyl fence that offers a recently-added in-ground saltwater pool. This layout is perfect for cooling off during NC's warm summers and entertaining guests. This home can serve as the perfect primary residence; however, opportunistic entrepreneurs should take notice as well. This home can easily be transformed into a wedding venue and an elegant bed and breakfast inn. Come grab some NC barbecue and sweet tea and tour this historic treasure.
