Circa 1890 Fleming House ~ Over 4300 Sq Feet on Nearly 2 Acres! For Sale!

Nestled in the old town center of Cleveland, North Carolina, you'll find The Fleming House ~ circa 1890 Victorian Farmhouse. This beautiful vintage home, on its nearly two-acre park-like acres, features four bedrooms and 2 full baths in its 4053 square feet of living space. This wonderful 2-story home is for sale ~ with Realtor® Greg Rapp. Call Greg today at (704) 213-6846, and ask to see 203 W. Main Street , Cleveland, North Carolina! (MLS#59473)





The most notable feature of the exterior of this fine home, beyond the mature shade and flowering trees and landscaped acreage, is the 750+ square foot wrap-around, rocking-chair porch! Bracketed porch columns are original to the home ~ a reminder of the quality of construction these late 1800s homes possess.






Inside, you'll find beautiful hardwood floors, original period millwork, and huge rooms throughout, including dual front parlors and a large dining room with a lovely bay window. We believe a remodel took out a center hall design that would have separated the two parlors, probably with French doors ~ now it is an open, airy, and inviting space!







The Formal Dining Room with Original Gas Light Fixture (converted to electric)


The eat-in kitchen, overlooking the picturesque backyard, offers an over-sized pantry, pressed tin backsplash, and loads of cupboard space. A ceramic tile floor finishes this space.








The kitchen at 203 W. Main Street opens to the enormous den addition, with its beamed ceiling and large masonry fireplace outfitted with gas logs. Laminate flooring here makes this a care-free room! Sliding glass doors to a small brick side patio, that again leads to the wrap-around porch, and lots of windows lend natural daylight to this large gathering room.



The owner's suite on the ground floor level offers a walk-in closet and pretty tiled master bath.







Let us take you upstairs in this historic 1890s home, past beautifully carved vintage newel posts, balustrade, and chair rail to the remaining 3 bedrooms. At the upper landing, a large hallway is almost another room!







Three more large bedrooms await upstairs, and a cute sapphire-blue full bath. Look at these gorgeous floors!





A large concrete drive swings gracefully around The Fleming House to the oversized double carport.  A small outbuilding there offers additional storage.





The setting surrounding 203 W. Main Street is nothing short of idyllic! Gardens, mature trees, and landscaping abound. The cutest whitewashed country church sits across the road. The effect is pure charm!






The Fleming House, at 203 W. Main Street in Cleveland, unquestionably is in a rural small-town North Carolina setting, but is roughly 15 minutes by car to Statesville with Interstate highways I-77 and I-40 to the west, and 15 minutes by car to Salisbury with Interstate 85 and the historic Amtrak Depot to the east, making any travel plans a breeze. Lake Norman is minutes to the south, and High Rock Lake borders Salisbury ~ wonderful waterways to enjoy boating, fishing, and swimming.



Are you ready to picture yourself living in this spacious historic home?  It's not every day that a 4000+ square foot 1890s home in this park-like setting comes along. . . but Greg Rapp, noted for his knowledge and marketing of historic and vintage homes, is offering this home now!  Yes ~ it sounds like a catch phrase ~ but this one will not stay on the market long.  Call or text Greg today at (704) 213-6846, and ask to see 203 W. Main Street, Cleveland, North Carolina! (MLS#59473) Make The Fleming House YOUR home!
