Front view
Front view
Adorable inside and out! Light yellow with white trim. Spacious front porch is 8x22 with swing. Brick walkway to front and side entrances.
Located just off Main Street. You can walk the tree lined sidewalks to historic downtown shopping and dining or explore the original campus of Wake Forest University which is now Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

This home features crystal doorknobs, gorgeous door and window moldings, a claw foot tub, hardwoods floors including heart of pine, iron art glass, real plaster walls and working wood burning fireplaces. Exterior electrical updated 2006.

The Living Room features one of the home’s fireplaces which is surrounded by small high windows and built in bookshelves. It is open to an area which the current owner is using as a dining room, but could also be an extension of the living room. There is a leaded glass transom over the pass through to the kitchen. The sunroom addition has a vaulted ceiling with skylights and 2 large closets for storage. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the second floor. The bedrooms all have hardwood floors and closets. The master has a working fireplace for romantic evenings and his & her closets. The upstairs bathroom has a porcelain tub and the first floor bath has a claw foot tub. They both have built in medicine cabinets and bead board walls.

The basement is great for storage or a workshop and it has the washer and dryer connections. There is a second storage area under the house, which can be reached from the backyard. Speaking of the backyard, nothing could be more relaxing than sitting under the large hardwood trees, unless of course it is swinging on the covered front porch watching the neighbors go by.
