Two story Victorian home built in 1887, wonderfully maintain and restored with sensitive renovations completed to keep the home in original condition. The wrapped around porch is trimmed in decorative gingerbread molding, has double front doors opening into a beautiful foyer and hall servicing the stairway and most of the down stairs rooms. Windows with stained glass surrounds are common to all the first floor rooms. All the floors are original heart pine wood and in very good condition. Two interior brick chimneys accommodate seven fireplaces, two with marble mantles & gas logs. All rooms have high ceilings and are beautifully painted and very spacious. A real jewel for older home lovers. Move in, no updating needed. Back yard has privacy fence, pecan trees and lots of space.

    Nice Queen Anne with a really impressive newel post and a unique bell shaped roof on the tower. Speaking of which, what’s covering the top of the tower?

      Looks like whatever it is, it’s made from sheet metal. Lead?

      I don’t know what they used on the tower but my eye is drawn to it. It is a little distracting. The roofing needs to be uniform in this area, probably not an easy think to do, considering the shape!

        Agreed. It looks like there must have been a leak or some damage to the tower roof and sheet metal or an EPDM material (EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene dieneter-polymer)) was used to cover it. Given the challenging logistics of reaching and working on the tower roof, a more permanent fix may have been postponed. The house has nice period millwork inside.

    I would stay in NC for this house. I wonder if the kitty is included?

    As a bath person, I’m happy to see those claw foot tubs! I wonder if there’s a shower somewhere they didn’t show. The tubs don’t seem to have the shower conversions, which is okay by me.

    I’ve been through this house and the photos do not do it justice. It is a crown jewel but not in a great location.

    Beautiful on the inside and the outside wouldn’t change a thing.

    Lovely home and seems well cared for. Lots of potential pictures not showing what’s in the tower, upstairs hallway, how or if there’s access to the little 2nd story porch, basement and etc.

    What a lovely home with a picket fenced Garden, birdhouses & brick pathway. Interior: They certainly are not afraid of COLOR. Everything is neat and tidy and the functional kitchen remodel was very well done. No doubt, they will find a buyer quickly! The price seems too inexpensive, to me. WOW.

    Wow, love those stained glass windows. They have quite a green thumb too. I would hope I wouldn’t kill off that garden. I’m not very good at that stuff. I’m plant/garden challenged. Great house!

    Not a bit of wood untouched by white paint but the newel post on the staircase. Why, oh why? It hurts my heart. Such a beautiful house and yard.

    this is adorable and the garden is precious. Just charming all the way around. Does anyone know where Lagrange is in NC?

    I wonder if it was a widow’s walk or just a railing up there on the tower….maybe they just roofed around it and it’s waiting for the right person to open it up. It’s a beauty, i’d take it. I love a house with history!

    Link from the Preservation NC site, which has information on both homes. The one I linked above has sure seen better day, but some good bits have been left behind!
