Gorgeous ca.1920 Arts & Crafts Home Listed with Greg Rapp - Sold!

Centered in one what might easily be the most prestigious historic district in Salisbury, North Carolina, stands the spectacular 319 W. Horah Street - a 2-story Arts & Crafts home. This outstanding circa 1920 home, complete with all the wonderful details we all love about the homes of this era, is surrounded by a plethora of other grand homes dating from the late 1800s to the early 1900s.  Yet, this home represented a bit of a challenge.  The owners listed the home with Realtor Greg Rapp of Wallace Realty, and today the home is sold.  What was the challenge?  

Listen here:




319 W. Horah Street, while a stand-alone home in every respect, is part of a condominium plat. The luxury high-end Fairmont Terrace Condominiums another historic building in the West Square Historic District, is nearby and includes this fine home. The property basically came with no yard or lawn, but provides a gracious circular drive and handsome foundation landscaping. So . . . house or condo . . . how does one market such a property?  List with Greg Rapp and the rest is history!







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 1900s 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 was definitely part of a condominium plat . . . it carried 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. 




The new owners of 319 W. Horah Street can 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 are (3) gracious  bedrooms and two full baths. Each bedroom closet is outfitted with closet organizers. An intimate Florida room with tin flooring stream sunlight. Additionally, the mezzanine hallway offers 3 lighted closets (one is a cedar closet!) and a laundry, a rarity for a home of this era.

Greg marketed 319 W. Horah Street by comparing the desirability of a private home...the bountiful square footage, the space between neighbors, the individuality.. . . and the benefits provided to the condo owner - no lawn mowing, weeding, or hedge trimming. And now, another historic home is added to the Greg Rapp SOLD roster.

The new owners will have all the advantages of a single-family home ~ privacy, space, individuality ~ with the benefit of low exterior maintenance that comes with a condo...but without all the fees and restrictions!
