The historic two-story wood frame home with wrap-around front porch at 530 West Monroe Street in Salisbury NC, circa 1925Lash House, is now for sale and represents a special opportunity to own an historic home in central North Carolina. This spacious 2,600-2,700 square foot structure was the boyhood home of Wiley Lash (1908-1995), owner of an East Council Street grocery, a member of the Salisbury City Council and the city’s first black mayor. Wiley Lash’s descendants donated the home to Historic Salisbury Foundation (HSF). At the time of donation, the home was divided into two apartments. It was included on the very popular Historic Salisbury Foundation’s October Tour 2003 as a work in progress.
The Lash home is decidedly the jewel in the crown of this Livingstone College neighborhood. Owners of this historic home will enjoy a fully restored dwelling with ultra-large rooms, (3) bedrooms and (3) full bathrooms, fireplaces with beveled mirrors and original mantles and tile work, and a superb wraparound front porch. The home’s wonderful 18.3 x 9.10 eat-in kitchen includes a butler’s pantry converted to a wet bar with built-in wine racks and wine fridge, built in china closet, and sunny 7’ x 6’ breakfast nook. Original leaded glass windows and transoms abound, many with stained glass panels. Many of the rooms have bay windows.
What a great floor plan for both living and entertaining! The living room measures 15.4’ x 14’, the dining room is 17.5’ x 13.7’, and the den is 14.10’ x 13.10’. There are (3) first floor fireplaces with gas logs to add to the ambiance. The wraparound porch is a very special feature of this wonderful home, overlooking a newly landscaped yard with a gently curving stone retaining wall and front picket fence.
