Loads of Storage in a Great Bungalow in Desirable Fulton Heights

The Arts & Crafts Bungalow is one of the country's most enduring architectural home styles. What many time deceivingly appears to be a cozy cottage is often a home of considerable square footage, classic design, and sensible floor patterns. This wonderful circa 1915 Craftsman Bungalow in the desirable Fulton Heights neighborhood of Salisbury, North Carolina is no exception! Welcome to 223 Wiley Avenue, in one of the ten historic districts in Salisbury NC, listed with Greg Rapp, historic house expert with Wallace Realty.



Notably, this 2-story 2,335 square foot home sits aloft the neighborhood on an elevated lot. Standing on the spacious brick and wood front porch, you are easily 15 feet above the street level with a king-of-the-mountain view of this charming, walk-able neighborhood. A handsome granite retaining wall separates the sidewalk from the elevated front lawn and gardens.





Through the front door you'll find yourself in a large open foyer flanked by dual parlors. (This home may have originally had a center-hallway design, as was often a common floor plan.) While both of these spacious rooms offer the classic and beautiful, large 4-over-one windows, the living room parlor to your right includes the original fireplace and provides the view through the home to the formal dining room and open kitchen.



The kitchen is beautifully equipped with a center work island, ceramic tile floor, and loads of cupboard space.  A cute laundry room is tucked behind the kitchen! A charming rear porch overlooks the fenced-in back yard.



Back to the foyer, you'll find a hallway that leads to the 1st floor bath, and to the 1st floor Master Suite . . . which has one of the largest baths we've ever seen in a home of this era. The owner's bedroom includes a large walk-in closet, and wait until you see all the closet space in this home!



Upstairs, (3)* more bedrooms reside. Each as its own walk-in closet and (3) more large closets are in the hall space...a total of (6) large closets upstairs! You won't be wanting for storage space at 223 Wiley Avenue.






This beautiful home is newly on the market and located in the heart of Fulton Heights.

The Fulton Heights neighborhood is known for its family-friendly grid of tree-lined, walk-able streets; its neighborhood park, and its proximity to downtown amenities such as unique shops, restaurants, museums and galleries.The neighborhood was the city of Salisbury's first 'suburb' and an electric trolley car system connected it to the city and nearby Spencer, North Carolina. The houses of the neighborhood reflect nationally-popular architectural trends from the period spanning 1903 through the 1940s, most rendered as modest cottage and bungalows but also including more stately houses of the late Victorian era. A network of alleyways, an original development feature that remains today, service the rear of most of the houses giving access numerous period garages.

The district is supported by a strong neighborhood association that provides communication for the neighborhood and plans wonderful events such as Easter Egg Hunts, an annual Halloween Parade that is attended by 100s, and a Christmas Home Tour.

223 Wiley Avenue** has had a complete rehab and restoration approximately 10 years ago, and offers a newer metal roof, vinyl siding and new electrical system. A common back alley offers plenty of parking in rear of home.

Come see for yourself the spaciousness of this beautiful Arts & Crafts home in one of Salisbury, North Carolina's most desirable neighborhoods! You wont be disappointed!  Call Greg Rapp at (704) 213-6846 today!



*Note: Two of the bedrooms are adjoined, meaning you must walk through one to get to another. The two can be individual bedrooms or the one room could be a dressing room or play room for the adjoining room, or could be an upstairs den. Alternatively, a small hallway could easily be installed to created private access to the front bedroom.

** 223 Wiley Avenue is listed under the Fulton Heights Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places as the K.C. Kluttz House, built in 1938 and as a one-and-a-half-story side-gabled bungalow with central gabled dormer and engaged porch roof.
