Updated Historic home in Spencer NC

home of the NC Transportation Museum.

Welcome home to this 3 bedroom (2 full, one possible), 1 bath house. Built in 1913; House boasts 1,200+/- spacious sq. ft. features a living room/dining room,master bedroom, bathroom with laundry and two additional bedrooms.

The main bath is located in the center of the home and has been completely updated to be, not only beautiful, but low maintenance and efficient.  Solid bamboo floors, wainscoted walls, one-piece shower, high-pressure water, stackable W/D for space saving and large window.

 The living-room is relatively cavernous with 3 large windows, fireplace with LP gas heater installed and restored Red Oak hardwood floors.  This room also can serve as your dining area with enough space for a 6 person farmhouse table and full living room suite.

With the second largest room being the kitchen you have ample space to cook, prepare food and still have room for your dining table or a large island if you wish.  Kitchen includes high-quality vinyl tile floor to easy repair in case of damage to floors or can be removed to reveal the same Red Oak as in the living room.

The master bedroom is 13’x13′ with two windows, a closet, fireplace and painted pine floor.  The layout of the room is such that you can fit furniture in many different configurations and still have lots of walking space.

Bedroom two is very large and was once the master bedroom.  With the expansion of the master bath and relocation of the half bath it is now the second largest bedroom.  Carpet, vaulted ceiling, and two windows make this room great for kids and let in the most light.

Bedroom 3/office/utility room: This room can be whatever you want!  We use it as a bedroom and once used it as an office!  The back door is located in this room but it still has 2 windows and a closet so it really is a multi-functional room.  It’s large enough for a small bedroom but it’s location makes it great for an office or utility room depending on your needs. 

The front of the house has a huge porch that spans the full width.  It’s is completely original with a small repair at the steps using the original tongue and groove pine used at the time.  The porch is always the first thing visitors complement when coming to the home and is our pride as it’s larger than 90% of the homes in the area.

A gravel/paver driveway leads to an original awning large enough for a single car and protection from the rain.  It’s perfect for cold mornings protecting the glass from frost and rainy days staying dry as you get in the car.

Insulated aluminum siding and double-hung insulated windows help with this old homes efficiency as well as insulated attic and weather stripping where required.

Landscaping is a mix of antiques conversation pieces, exotic accent plants, flowers, and bushes.  Well maintained with no-float cypris mulch and vintage brick accenting the home very well.  Around the back the same theme continues with the addition of a grill pad and plants that like the shadier setting.

Behind the house is an original 1913 shed that has seen some restoration but needs and is worthy of additional minor work.  It’s roughly 20×20 and has two double hung windows in the front with a flower bed directly below.  The floor is packed dirt but has been covered with thin sand, thin wood and commercial carpet to protect the buildings contents from soil and moisture.  This building has been a huge conversation starter with individuals of carpentry backgrounds.

The back yard has a very old fence that is intact!  Minor repair needs done if you plan on having a dog but it’s great for kids not getting out of sight!

Over all the yard is around 7,500 sq.ft and very large for the area!  We have hosted many birthday parties and events here with enough space to really enjoy a good bbq.
