1903 Neoclassical

900 Nash Street N
Wilson, North Carolina 27893

The Williams-Cozart House

Offered for exchange for only the fourth time in 120 years, I'm proud to represent the Williams-Cozart estate-one of the most admired and coveted properties in Wilson, NC -- covering over 1.25 acres, only 1 block from historic Barton College and 1 mile from the YMCA & exciting downtown -- please ask agent for details.

A timeless painted brick and ornamental iron fence gives way to welcome you onto the property via an 8-vehicle front parking court. The grandeur and timeless beauty of the home is unrivaled and effortlessly appreciated whether you prefer formal or more casual living.

The parking court is flanked by brick walkways surrounding the house and continues onto the front porch with 28' columns. Original Classic revival (ex.) & Federal Revival (in.) construction dates back to 1903 and many features radiate as beautifully now as they did then, including intricate millwork, plasterwork, & finials, (the original blueprints of which remain in the house), gorgeous oak (1st level) and southern yellow pine floors (2nd level & attic) along with original rugs, stair runners, & draperies.

The reception hall-sized foyer could serve as a generous sitting room or remain as it's been historically used. Its marvelous, bifurcated staircase has 8' treads leading to a split landing, allowing a 180-degree view of the upper reception landing-an elevator ensures no worries come from the stairs. You'll enjoy drawing guests into the parlor with another fireplace and coved ceiling, while the true banquet-worthy dining room deserves a highlight its own, with focal wall of French Zuber wallpaper and corner china cabinets with finials mimicking those in the reception hall.

The landscaping throughout grounds was designed by Charles Gillette who was commissioned for the VA state capitol and Governor's residence and select other high-profile properties. Relax and enjoy private pond with water feature on the patio or a larger dual-tiered pond near the rear right corner.

Continuing you'll come across the library, complete with more built-ins and a gorgeous fireplace. The home's kitchen has a plethora of cabinetry and operable vintage appliances (save for the Fisher-Paykel dishwasher-when you host parties of 200+ people, some things are a must!)

Circa 1950 is the rear den, a casual but lovely paneled room with 180-degree views of the bricked patio & lush grounds. There's even a separate pocket office for when more private duty calls.

On the second level, all the bedrooms have direct access to a bath-each has been impeccably maintained.

Copper plumbing is present throughout. The ceiling height is 14' throughout the house. Between the many coat & linen closets, cubby storage under stairs, and ceiling-height cabinets, there is absolutely no shortage of storage in this house. Permanent stairs provide easy access to the 3rd level with cedar closets and endless potential to expand living area if desired.

Whether you're an historic preservationist or appreciate vibrant progressive growth maintaining smaller town charm, you owe yourself to explore the many opportunities this property offers.

More About This House

The house has (3) total zones for heating which can be used without the boiler to heat the entire house. Others are HVAC zones for the A/C and heat. The landscaping was designed by Charles Gillette who was commissioned for the VA state capitol and Governor's residence and select other high-profile properties.

You can relax and enjoy private pond with water feature on the patio or a larger dual-tiered pond in the rear right corner. In addition to numerous wildflowers, blueberry bushes , and pear & pomegranate trees, the back yard contains (2) Coastal Redwood trees, and you can view another on neighbor's property-see agent for info re: past city tours.

The carriage house/2-bay garage includes plenty of storage and a bonus space to finish a guest suite above. Wilson is in the heart of eastern NC, less than 45 minutes from Raleigh and 2 hours from several beautiful beaches.

I'll answer the question I know is on your mind. Seller is relocating for all and only that they love more than this home: out-of-state family. This property was built to be an heirloom and you can continue its legacy while doing what you desire to make it yours. There is potential to be a B&B or event venue with rezoning.
