Information about the HomeThe house at 115 Battle Lane is situated on a corner lot in the Franklin-Rosemary Historic District. The two-story, frame Colonial Revival with wood shingle siding features large two over two windows, two three-sided bays, and large cross-gabled roof and was built in 1908. The interior features include mantels, a graceful stairway in the entrance foyer, pocket doors, and wood floors.
The house was home to Edward Kidder Graham, an alumnus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who became president of the school in 1914. He lived in the home until his death in 1918. His cousin, Frank Porter Graham, also lived in the house at one time.
The home is a candidate for a 30% state tax credit. If the home is deemed income-producing, it is eligible for federal tax credits as well. This home would be perfect for a bed and breakfast. It would be the only one in Chapel Hill and would be within walking distance to the University for parents as well as other visitors.
It is also eligible for statewide significance. The Preservation Society of Chapel Hill and Preservation North Carolina will assist you in this process. This will protect the home from future development.
The home is located in the Franklin-Rosemary Historic District in the heart of Chapel Hill. It is a short walk to the shops on Franklin Street and to UNC's campus. Buyers have an opportunity to own a piece of Chapel Hill and Carolina history.
The home was the location for a 1960s film, Three in the Attic. It depicted the sexcapades of a campus lothario. When the three women he was seeing found out about each other, they decided to lock him in the attic of a sorority house, the Edward Kidder Graham House.
The home is located on a corner lot and is one of the few double lots in Chapel Hill.
