    Another cutie! Love the green with the red roof. Looking at the street, nearly every home is a different color, nice! I’d repaint the interior and redo the shelving and counters (keep the color of the cabinets!) otherwise this one is perfect.

  2. I love it! Agree with adding appropriate cabinets.

        What’s really amazing is that every house on this street was in similar condition and all have been restored.

          Yes, it’s a unique neighborhood. Usually these mill house neighborhoods are run down, it’s refreshing to see such a cared for street of them.

            NC has many mill villages that fell into hardship as the textile mills closed & jobs went overseas. There are several near here (Charlotte) that, 15 yrs ago, were similar to the one above — ruins, basically — and now have been restored. Thanks to preservation movements around the state — even some of the large, falling apart, mill buildings are being adapted to other uses & their attractive designs saved. The mill cottages have sold or been rented quickly; neighborhoods re-created sponsor fun & educational events. It is one encouraging success story.

      Very impressive! This is not only proof that seriously dilapidated houses can be successfully restored, but also a great example of how the thoughtful use of color can make even a modest exterior beautiful (and even sophisticated). I love the winding stairs.

    I can’t get over the transformation of this wonderful old place. The google bus tour is definitely worth a trip to see this neighborhood. Burlington reminds me a lot of my town of Canton, GA. Two big cotton mills, and lots of mill houses. Unfortunately, a lot of fallen into disrepair, although one of the mills was converted to apartments. I also read that Burlington is home to a beautiful vintage carousel, which is a major tourist attraction for the city park. Looks like such a neat place to live.

    Thanks to CharlestonJohn for providing the photo pre-restoration. Goodness, what a transformation. Definitely worthy of an award to those responsible for a job well done. I love the exterior colours. Not only does it grab your interest but you just know that the interior is going to be awesome and this one certainly is. Love everything about it. Such a lovely uncomplicated home.
