Pristine Tudor Cottage Circa 1942 ~ Charming as Can Be!



Some properties are just too good to be true and the pristine Tudor cottage at 508 W. Henderson Street in Salisbury, North Carolina is one! On a winding road that takes through the City Park neighborhood, sits this all-brick 1.5 story cottage on a double parcel of land, just waiting for its new owners.



Up the walk past immaculate landscaping and through the fairy tale arched door, you'll find yourself in a surprisingly spacious living room with its circa 1942 fireplace with masonry mantel and surround.



The light meets bright in the nearby dining room with its sparkling chandelier.  Note the pretty hardwood floors spanning these two gracious rooms.



The story-book kitchen is a joy, custom crafted with its iconic 50's style SMEG Retro Style refrigerator in its own nook (ask Realtor Greg Rapp about this if a big fridge is more your style...there is a story here!) that enlivens the room, creating a conversation piece. The microwave oven is tucked in a cupboard above.  The ILVE® all-gas range (pronounced "ILL-VAY") is another high-end appliance here bringing a unique brand of Italian craftsmanship to the devoted chef. Sparkling white granite counter tops gleam in this cheerful space.





Just off the kitchen is the sweetest little sitting spot nestled into a small breezeway entrance that leads to the home's side walk...sure to be a favorite spot for perusing Southern and French cookbooks!



Down the hall, a full bath and two bedrooms (one currently used as a study) round out the main floor with more stunning wood floors afoot. But wait, there is more! A doorway here takes you up a knotty pine stairwell to the second story where a private oasis awaits!



Upstairs, a very private master suite greets you, complete with large sleeping area, a sitting room, two full closets artfully tucked under the eaves, a linen closet, and a full bath. Wood floors painted creamy white brighten this upstairs oasis, where you will look forward to escaping your day-to-day doldrums in this warm, wood clad privacy zone.



You might think you've seen all there is to see in this darling home at 508 W. Henderson Street, where fastidious owners have kept this home immaculate. But no!!! Take a walk around the back . . .

Behind the house, accessible from the back yard, is a spacious screened-in and lighted patio area . . . perfect for entertaining. The garage door leads to an under-house garage, workshop, basement area.


Further along the back drive, another building awaits. A former music studio, this heated, cooled, and completely wired outbuilding is equipped with soundproof walls and makes for another great entertaining area, workshop, artist's studio. . . let your imagination run wild!

Outside this outbuilding is a patio with firepit for enjoying summer evenings. Another small shed and carport are in the adjoining lot.

As if all this were not enough, this wonderful home at 508 W. Henderson Street backs up to woods, the beautiful Hurley Park, and the Salisbury Greenway, offering the ultimate privacy in the back yard.

We're pretty certain this pristine cottage will not linger on the market. Give Greg Rapp at Wallace Realty a call: (704) 213-6846, and make sure it doesn't get away from YOU!
