Once in a Lifetime circa 1875 Property ~ SOLD!!

Some opportunities come along so rarely, being in the right place at the right time, with the right Realtor®, is the only way to snatch them up!



When Greg Rapp, real estate agent with Wallace Realty in Salisbury NC, listed the approximately 17 acre riverfront property, the circa 1875 Lindsay-Tatum-Wyatt House ~ that rare opportunity was here . . . and gone like the wind!



Greg Rapp listed the centennial property along the South Yadkin River at the Rowan | Davie County line on November 25th, 2016. This fabulous property with over 1600 feet of river frontage, a beach-house, stables, and the gorgeous vintage house was on the market for just 13 days before Greg had the home under contract!



The vintage home, nestled behind a hedgerow of 100-year-old boxwoods and giant (truly giant!) magnolia trees, contains beautiful wide heart of pine floors throughout and gorgeous original mantles and woodwork. Read more about this wonderful home here: >HERE<





Retired City of Salisbury Planning Director, Joe Morris, and wife Pam, retired educator from Rowan-Salisbury School System, snatched up this once in a lifetime opportunity and say, ". . . the timing could not have been more perfect! The property was available, we were looking for a retirement home, we love historic preservation, land conservation, and river paddling ~ and the clubhouse will be perfect for entertaining our guests!"  The couple has fantastic plans for revitalizing the property to the showcase it deserves to be! The Morrises even found, after surveying, that the property was actually 18 acres, and, found an ancient spring below the observation deck while they were clearing the lower meadow-land.

After a long due diligence period,
Greg helped the Morrises finalize the sale on their new home on March 1st, 2017. Stay tuned...we are hoping for a guest blog from new owners Joe & Pam! The Morrises found even more history on the home's 'family-tree' as they researched this wonderful historic property! We're thrilled for the Morrises, and for the Linsday-Tatum-Wyatt House.
