Welcome to 216 Mitchell Avenue ~ For Sale by Greg Rapp!



This c. 1921 Arts & Crafts brick home is another quality built 4-bedroom/2 bath home listed in the Fulton Heights Historic District on the National Registry of Historic Places. This fine two-story brick four-square boats a wrap-around hip roof and a deep Prairie-Style porch supported by thick square columns, extending over porte-cochère*, with a hipped central dormer in front.. A brick walk takes you past the deep terracotta-tiled rocking-chair front porch to the interior.




A classic feature of Arts & Crafts homes are built-in bookshelves often flanking a fireplace . . . and this 216 Mitchell Avenue retains this wonderful feature with the original 1921 cabinetry surrounding the living room masonry coal-burning fireplace.  Note the pretty oak hardwood floors through the living & dining rooms.


The sunlit kitchen has original built-in china cabinets, pretty ceramic tile counters, and a striking pressed back-splash reminiscent of old tin ceilings.



A rear porch was enclosed to make another sitting room before you exit through sliding glass doors to the sun deck that takes you to the fenced back yard with its raised bed gardens and a charming fountain.




The upper level in this two story home houses four bedrooms (bedroom #4 has no closet) and an upper bath with unique original blue & white tile. The downstairs bath also houses the laundry room.




Fulton Heights Historic District was one of Salisbury's Street Car subdivisions. Laid out in a grid, the neighborhood is interlaced with sidewalks creating a friendly atmosphere for walking and neighborhood activities.  Mitchell Avenue was the site of the original trolley line, and the tracks are rumored to still be beneath the attractive planted medians that divide the avenue down its center. Common alley ways can often be found behind the homes - great places for parking - and 216 Mitchell is no exception. The streets are lined with homes that reflect nationally-popular architectural trends from the period spanning 1903 through the 1940s, most rendered as modest cottages and bungalows but also including a relatively small number of houses of the late Victorian era. An active neighborhood association plans ever-popular events such as annual Easter-egg hunts and a Halloween parade that attracts children from all points of Salisbury.  The neighborhood worked with the City of Salisbury to install a small neighborhood park ~ prized by the residents.


This beautiful 1860+ square foot home holds many original details from its 1921 beginnings, such as the original mantel piece, cabinets, and the original 4-over-1 Arts & Crafts style windows. Vintage, yes...but have no fear, the home has modern updates including a new HVAC system and new electric panel.
