Circa 1910 in Prestigious West Square for Sale ~ A Restoration Awaits

Editor's Note 2/9/2018:  313 West Fisher Street is now offered for $91,500!

This wonderful home in a prime location in the prestigious West Square Historic District in Salisbury North Carolina is on the market.

313 West Fisher Street is a lovely ca. 1910 2.5-story frame house set in a pretty landscape nestled into a neighborhood of homes that attract visitors from far and wide to the West Square. (The West Square is formally known as the Salisbury Historic District.) It was the first neighborhood in Salisbury to be designated as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 when the preservation movement first gained momentum in this city of vintage homes and is supported by a strong neighborhood association.

This once marvelous home is a blank slate - other than the new roof installed in 2017 - and it's asking price of $99,000 reflects this (tax value at 313 W. Fisher Street is $167,579). At some unfortunate point in time, this nearly 4,000 square-foot house was divided into 3 apartments and will need complete rehabilitation and restoration. Fortunately, most of the original woodwork and floors remain. The home will need a new kitchen, baths, and mechanicals.

313 W. Fisher Street is in a fabulous location just doors from the Rowan Public Library, and blocks from the historic downtown center of Salisbury. A grand central park is planned across the street, expanding on where the small landmark Bell Tower Park currently exists.  Work has already begun on this sure-to-be-lovely central green-space in the downtown. You might be able to already picture yourself enjoying summer evenings on the wrap-around porch overlooking the park.

This home is surrounded by some of Salisbury's finer homes and is just waiting to join its peers! And not only is this grand vintage home priced well below its tax value of 167K, it is additionally is eligible for exterior grants through the City of Salisbury's Historic Preservation Grant program.  Additionally, this home's restoration will be eligible for North Carolina Historic Tax Credits.
