Circa 1890s Victorian Cottage in Prestigious Historic District - It Can Be Yours!

Looking for that sweet Victorian storybook cottage of your dreams? Look no further. Greg Rapp with Wallace Realty offers this terrific blend of old world charm and new world comfort in a sweet single-story circa 1890s farmhouse Victorian in the heart of Salisbury, North Carolina.

308 West Monroe Street, a 1890-1910 folk Victorian Queen Anne with 1,329 square feet, two-bedrooms and 2.5 baths, is nestled between three circa 1897 sister houses in the heart of the prestigious West Square Historic District in Salisbury, North Carolina. Two large pin oaks, the owner's rock garden, and iron fencework frame the property and offer wide swaths of shade, cooling the home in summer and creating the most enjoyable front-porch experiences.

The adorable front porch is a prize-winner, with spindle friezes, trefoil brackets, and turned elements figuring prominently in its ornamentation. Decorative dentil molding trims the home's bay windows. The home's exterior was recently painted as part of many recent upgrades, including an added bath and kitchen re-do.

Stepping inside, the knock-out feature in the spacious front parlor is the tray ceiling bedecked with a stunning ceiling mural, all framed by impressive crown molding and trim. A faux-fireplace is framed by two large windows in the parlor's bay. 

The formal dining room is equally handsomely trimmed with wide crown molding.

Enter the farmhouse-style kitchen through lacy corner brackets . . . and you are sure to be impressed with plenty of cabinet space and counter work-areas.

A mudroom just off the kitchen leads to a half bath with a hidden laundry room.

The tongue-&-groove beadboard walls throughout and more handsome crown moldings are a stunning statement to the homes vintage beginnings.

The Owner's Bedroom Suite has its own private bathroom with a claw foot tub. The second bedroom has a box-bay window. Again, pretty original beadboard walls speaks to the home's vintage era.

The pretty shaded (and private!) back yard, a-bloom with irises and evergreens, offers a large outbuilding that would be perfect for a workshop, artist's studio, a "She-Shed" or "Man-Cave", or more!

In the center of the Historic West Square and only blocks from the Rowan County Library and Downtown center, which is bustling with plenty of activity, 308 W. Monroe Street is a stone's throw from Salisbury's many and varied restaurants (Italian, American Bistro, Thai, and Vietnamese, to name a few!), community theaters, shops and brewery options!

Located in a Historic District overlay, this sweet home is eligible for City of Salisbury Historic Preservation Grants for exterior improvements. The home's interior is all freshly painted. A newer roof replaced original tin roofing.

If pictures are not enough to convince you of the complete charm of this spectacular and move-in-ready Victorian cottage in the West Square, then it's time to give Realtor® Greg Rapp a call: 704.213.6846. Let Greg tell you the advantages of purchasing a historic home in Salisbury, and the rest, as they say, will be history!
