This is a quick look at a home for sale in Raleigh NC. I previewed this home in August 2016. Enjoy, quirks and all.
Listed on the National Register of historic places.
Perfectly situated on a stunning one acre lot in the historic district and walkable to downtown Clinton. Enjoy living in rare elegance provided by this extraordinary home. Pamper family and friends with the pleasure of large graceful porches – upstairs and down. Behind the home, and included in the sale, are 3 other structures – the interesting original smoke-house and two guest houses.
Some updating is needed but the numerous original architectural details are astounding – including paneled wainscot, intricate staircase, Greek Revival door and window surrounds. Five of the six fireplace mantles are Greek Revival and one front parlor mantle is marble.
The original back porch was long ago incorporated into the house to accommodate a kitchen and den. And the original kitchen off the back porch was converted into a garage. There are good options for incorporating a modern kitchen, including reclaiming the original kitchen space.
Enjoy the photo gallery. Contact me to learn more about this wonderful historic home.
