Just down the road from the City of Salisbury in the center of North Carolina, is the Town of Granite QuarryGranite Quarry is a beautiful town located approximately three miles south of Downtown Salisbury.  

Granite Quarry is often referred to as a bedroom community of Salisbury, but folks who live there will tell you they are the “Master Suite”.   The scenic drive into town yields beautiful parks and well maintained and inviting neighborhoods that are comfortable and appealing.

Let Realtor® Greg Rapp introduce you to Granite Quarry, by showing you his adorable circa 1920,  2-bedroom/1-bath American Bungalow, sitting comfortably on Main Street. (Main Street is now quietly off the NC Rt 52 main corridor through town.) 

This cute-as-a-button home, at 411 Main Street South, has all the features of one of the most popular residential architectural styles in our history:  The Bungalow.  Bungalow characteristics commonly feature:

  • 1 – 1 1/2 stories
  • Low-pitched roof, often with broad eaves
  • Entry typically opens directly into living room
  • Often has a large front porch that creates an outdoor room
  • Easy access to outdoor spaces like verandas, porches, and patios
  • Open floor plan maximized for efficiency and flow from room to room with minimal space wasted on hallways

This Granite Quarry bungalow at 411 Main Street South is no exception!  The spacious 20 x 13 foot living room greets you as you step inside from our favorite feature, the large front sitting porch with its granite piers.  The combined kitchen and dining area is a roomy 20 x 11 feet! A laundry room to the rear of the home was formerly a back porch, which is now enclosed and offers tons of storage space!

Did we mention this home is as cute as a button? It is in MOVE-IN condition with a freshly painted interior and a new metal roof just installed in 2010. The bathroom is freshly remodeled.

This single-story home is ideal as a starter home or for the retired who'd like to downsize! The fenced-in back yard includes a nice storage shed that will convey with your home purchase.  All appliances and heat are electric (clean & dry!)...AND with the home's vinyl siding and metal roof ~ this charming bungalow is virtually maintenance free!
