The ca. 1895 M.C. Rufty Home

Welcome to the circa 1895 M.C. Rufty House. The handsome Victorian residence at 310 E. Bank Street, one of the most eclectic in the district, was built about 1895 by prosperous local merchant Milton C. Rufty.  A prime representation of the district's late Victorian character, this grand vintage home at 310 E. Bank Street in Salisbury, North Carolina is characterized by a steep gable and roof with a projecting front gable and an extremely handsome wrap-around porch, now partially enclosed, which embellishes its asymmetrical façade.




This 122 year old gem has gone through extensive restoration over the years and could not be better accommodated.  This large 2-story home was just freshly painted inside & out (March 2017) and it purely sparkles. Among the many updates the current owners have provided the home are custom storm windows and a new roof (2007). A gas tankless water heater keeps utility bills lowered!

Be sure to take a peek a the pièce de résistance: the custom gourmet's kitchen. This citrus-warmed room features all the amenities the chef could want: a huge center work island equipped with a Jenn-Air™ luxury gas cooktop, a prep sink, and a breakfast bar. Along the sidewall are double ovens and built-in microwave. The pretty glass-front cabinets provide lots of storage while showing off your beautiful cookware, dishes and glasses, and the pressed coppery backsplash and granite counters are a delight! One of the many original fireplaces is in the kitchen, with exposed brick chimney.







Step down from the kitchen toward the rear of the home, through a unique arched doorway (there are several of these wonderful doorways in the home) and your jaw will drop. Here, a wonderfully spacious great room overlooks the rear patio and deep expanse of backyard. A pretty custom tile floor takes you on a path to the outdoor living areas, and a lovely bay window offers views of the deep stretch of landscape and the patio. Off of this fabulous room, you'll find an impressive 15' x 11' laundry room with tons of storage . . AND a screened side porch!





The main floor houses the master suite, two front parlors, a beautiful formal dining room, sunroom, kitchen, laundry room, and den . . . with a wonderful side porch.  Upstairs and via another large center hall, you'll find 3 more large, sunny bedrooms, and an additional full bath.

301 E. Bank Street enjoys a deep yard, and yes . . that is a granite block picnic table back there!  The large yard blossoms with flowering trees throughout the seasons. A small one-car garage at the rear of the driveway has lots of potential as a studio or workshop.
