More About This House

This 1883 Victorian style home is the ideal blend of historic features and modern upgrades. Located in Wake Forest’s historic district, two blocks from the Wake Forest College Birthplace Museum, it offers the owner an opportunity for involvement in a community that values legacy and history.
Over the last six years, the current owners have invested $200K in modernizing the kitchen and two bathrooms, adding landscape features, and completing roof, chimney and foundation upgrades. Other internal cosmetic restoration efforts have been done.
The 20th century history of the house includes a time when the home boarded many Wake Forest College students. Once it was known as the “Magnolia Hotel” serving as a half-way point for travelers from northern cities to Florida, when US Highway #1 was the only major route between those destinations.
Although the home has changed hands many times over the life of the house, the current owners have lived there for the last 38 years. Stories are available, such as the 1910 wedding night gown found in the attic and the barn that once stood in the back yard for milking cows.
