Best of Both Worlds: A 1900 Arts & Crafts Home with the Benefits of a Condo, Yet No Fees

Wondering whether to purchase a house or a condominium? You love the feeling of a private home...the space between neighbors, the individuality. But lawn mowing, weeding, hedge trimming...really? Not your thing?



While homeowners are busy mowing their lawns, trimming hedges, pruning trees, and raking leaves, condo owners are taking weekend trips, or simply relaxing at home.

Privacy in a condominium can be an issue. In the typical condo, you're much closer to your neighbors. You may be particularly bothered by the torso-level window in the neighbor's shower or the sound of high heels clicking on the tile floor above. You’ll almost always have more privacy in a house versus a condo. You don’t share any walls with your neighbors, and the yard associated with a stand-alone house puts even more distance between you and neighbors.


For some people, a house is simply part of the American dream. Houses generally have more space. Bigger means more space for your stuff and the people living there, and more room for entertaining. There’s also the individuality factor. Each house is unique. Condos on the other hand, are uniform. They’re so similar that one unit doesn’t necessarily stand out from the rest. But again...you love the ease of maintenance. What to do??

Greg Rapp with Wallace Realty has the answer to this dilemma!




Welcome to the beautiful condominium home (yes . . . a condo!) at 319 W. Horah Street in the heart of the West Square Historic District in Salisbury, North Carolina.




This fabulous 2400+ square foot house has the look and feel of a private home, but has little to no yard to keep you from enjoying the space and your own time! Additionally, it is chock full of the character and detail one can only find in a circa 1900 Arts and Crafts home of this nature. Look at the classic lines of this Craftsman home! Beveled glass, working transoms, GORGEOUS woodwork, vintage mantels above vintage fireplaces, French doors...the list goes on and on. And even better, while this home is definitely part of a condominium plat . . . it carries no fees or dues and is excluded from the condo association! YES!



Entertain in the sprawling front parlor with its handsome wood floors and masonry fireplace. A cozy den sits behind it with another beautiful vintage fireplace. 




Take that same entertaining to another level in the enormous dining room that enters to a huge kitchen with large center work peninsula and loads of cupboard space.





Up the grand center staircase, you'll find 3 bedrooms and two full baths. Each bedroom closet is outfitted with closet organizers. An intimate Florida room with tin flooring stream sunlight. The mezzanine hallway offers 3 lighted closets (one is a cedar closet!) and a laundry, a rarity for a home of this era.



Get all the advantages of a single-family home ~ privacy, space, individuality ~ with the advantage of low exterior maintenance that comes with a condo...but without all the fees and restrictions! The best of both worlds! Make the stunning ca.1900 Arts & Crafts home at 319 W. Horah Street YOUR home, and enjoy the character of a vintage home in one of Salisbury's most prestigious neighborhoods. Call Greg Rapp with Wallace Realty to make it happen! (704) 213-6846 makes it happen today.
