Sold!! 321 Horah Street ~ a Luxury Condo in Fairmont Terrace!

Sold!! 321 Horah Street ~ a Luxury Condo in Fairmont Terrace!

Long known as a contributing property in the Historic West Square of Salisbury, North Carolina, the Fairmont Terrace was originally built in 1927 as 'one of the most complete and convenient apartment houses in the state (Salisbury Post, Sunday Edition, 13 November 1927). The three story building, immaculately landscaped, of buff coloured tapestry brick, granite detailing, and a green roof, originally housed 12 apartments.

The restored structure now houses six luxury condominiums, 2 on each floor, with 10-foot ceilings, abundant natural light, and original hardwood floors, and offers the discriminating client the finest in luxury condominium living.

Realtor® Greg Rapp sealed the deal on #4a ~ 321 W Horah Street in the Fairmont Terrace. The new owners are delighted to be in such proximity to downtown Salisbury amenities such as live theatre venues, unique shops, restaurants, and multiple art galleries.

While it's too late to jump on the Fairmont Terrace opportunity, Greg Rapp has other fine living spaces available for those who are not interested in mowing lawns, yet want that luxury life that a loft or condo provides:


The prestigious Prince Charles complex is well known for offering Manhattan style luxury with high security. Marble floors in the entry foyer welcome you to this 1775 square foot flat on the second floor of the Prince Charles. Polished oak floors gleam throughout the large living room, dining room, and kitchen.

You'll love the spacious eat-in kitchen with its high-end cabinetry, gorgeous ceramic tile backsplash, new granite, AND a formal dining area. Outfitted with stainless steel appliances and plenty of electrical outlets, the kitchen at Prince Charles #22 is a cook's dream. 

Tall ceilings and extra large rooms makes this condo a home. Call Greg Rapp with Wallace Realty (704) 213-6846 to see this luxury condo, priced at $229,000 for this 2-bedroom, two-bath condominium.


The most exciting renovation in downtown Salisbury in the transformation of the circa 1882 Bernhardt Hardware Store on N. Main Street in the East Square Historic District to the Bernhardt Luxury Lofts. Six luxury loft-style apartments on the second floor have enormous arched windows, that not only define a room, but also increase the sense of space with panoramic views.  Retail spaces including a bistro-cafe restaurant, and bakery specializing in elegant cakes and cupcakes, and a baby apparel shop fill the street level spaces, and a large brick patio resides out back.  But...the living spaces are leasing quickly!

Unlike the Fairmont Terrace and the Prince Charles, the Bernhardt Luxury Lofts are for lease, not for purchase, and each have their advantages.  Clearly leasing is a popular option as the interest in the Bernhardt spaces is very high!

All but two of these spacious loft spaces are spoken for!  Remaining available residential units are the large east-facing one-bedroom (morning sunshine in your galley kitchen and living areas ~ how nice!), and the two-bedroom multi-story with mezzanine and loft bedroom levels (our favorite!!).  Lease prices vary up to $2,000/month. 

You can be a part of this exciting renovation in Downtown Salisbury North Carolina. Call (704) 213-6846 today to sign your lease in the Bernhardt Luxury Lofts that contains brilliant architectural characteristics that are part and parcel of a bygone building standard: soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, lots of windows, and rich finish materials...AND the benefits of urban life! 

If you think there is more to life than mowing a lawn, let Salisbury NC's premier real estate agent for historic properties, Greg Rapp, help you into that urban lifestyle you are craving!  Call (704) 213-6846 or email Greg at GregRappRealtor @!
