Your Chance to Own an 1800's Victorian Home ~ at an Attractive Price!

If you've always dreamt of owning an 1800's Victorian home, been inspired by their wrap-around porches, steep gabled roof lines, patterned shingles, and gingerbread trim ~ but most have been out of reach when it comes to price . . . here is the opportunity you've been waiting for!

This immaculately restored 1893 Folk Victorian home, at 126 E. Steele Street in Salisbury, North Carolina, is a dream-come-true!

The house underwent a very thorough restoration process in the late 1990's, and boasts southern pine refinished floors, 4 original fireplaces with their original mantles, and meticulous millwork throughout the home. A wide mezzanine on the second story provides wonderful space for displaying antiques and books.

Every room features coveted 10 foot high ceilings (think that giant Christmas tree you always wanted!) and many stained glass accents around the home, including the beautiful stained glass window in the stairwell, are also original features to the home.

126 E. Steele Street has a great spacious kitchen with tons of cabinet space, more stained glass accents, & a center work island. The kitchen door exits to the beautiful, shady, and private fenced-in back yard.



The nearly 500 square feet of wrap around porch might be the home's crowning touch, providing loads of space for entertaining or just relaxing in the shade of the eaves. But many will consider the white picket fence, the American Dream, that surrounds the 1/2 acre property that holds a gorgeous gazebo and another outbuilding (formerly a garage ~ but would make wonderful gardener's or artist's cottage!), the crowning feature. The landscape features blooming crepe myrtles, boxwood shrubs, and many mature shade trees!


This freshly painted 1893, 2000+ square-foot home, known locally as the Mary Steele Scales House (Historic Salisbury covenants and restrictions convey with deed and are recorded on Rowan County Deed book), is for sale at the astoundingly conservative price of just $144,900! The 3-bedroom, 2-full-bath, home is located in the North Main Historic Neighborhood, just blocks from Downtown Salisbury shopping, dining, art & culture . . . and is just a two block walk to two wonderful city parks ~ City Park & Hurley Park. THIS is the Victorian home you've been dreaming of!
