Beautifully Restored Victorian Home Circa 1893 ~ Just $129,900!


             Update 9/27/2014:   The listed price on the Mary Steele Scales home is now $119,900! 

One of the best historic houses in Salisbury NC has been reduced in price!  The Mary Steel Scales House, circa 1893, is steeped in history. The home sits on what was once a large plantation to the north of the early city of Salisbury. Mary Steel Scales' grandfather, John Steel, was the first comptroller of the United States federal government under George Washington, and his home, one of the oldest in Salisbury, sits just two blocks to the north.


Besides this rich and far-reaching history, the Mary Steel Scales home, at 126 E. Steele Street, has merits of its own!

Completely restored, the impressive 3-bedroom, 2-bath Victorian home is the jewel of the neighborhood.  The over 2000 square foot home, in the North Main Historic District of Salisbury NC, with gabled roofing and decorative shingles over its deep wrap-around porch decorated with original period millwork sits on a beautifully landscaped lot ~ surrounded by deep plantings and a white picket fence ~ is the picture of early Americana.

The home's four original fireplace, mantel pieces, and millwork are intact ~ the original Southern pine floors have all been refinished.  

Stained glass accents throughout the house, right down to the cabinetry in the kitchen are a wonderful feature you won't find in many  homes. The kitchen is a cook's dream with an efficient center work island and loads of cupboard space.

The second story space is vast, with a central mezzanine leading to the bedrooms and upstairs bath.
 


A small outbuilding, formerly a garage, begs to be a workshop or artist's studio.  It overlooks the large gazebo in the back yard, a prized feature of the yard and home.

The exterior of 126 E Steele Street was freshly repainted in late 2013.  This home is move-in ready!


And . . . here is the best news of all!  The Mary Steele Scales House has just been reduced in price to $129,900
