Circa 1927 Craftsman Home ~ Newly Renovated & FOR SALE

A brand new house, gift wrapped in its original shell! This lovely nearly 2000 square-foot circa 1927 Craftsman farmhouse is more than just renovated. This home has gone through a major gut-job . . . so everything, and we mean everything, is brand new, with one of the most successful blendings of old and new we've seen in a while.

Welcome to 215 S. Shaver Street in Salisbury, North Carolina.

This 2-story 3-bedroom/2-bath vintage home, listed with historic home specialist Greg Rapp of Wallace Realty, is picture perfect! Gleaming paint within and without, sparkling metal roof, beautiful landscaping, enclosed in the white picket fence synonymous with the American Dream. The home has a new and totally awesome floor plan with large rooms throughout. And although this is a 1927 home . . .it's practically NEW!

Where should we start? Perhaps with the brand new metal roof? Check. The brand new water heater? Check.  Brand new HVAC systems, plumbing, and electrical wiring systems? Check! New kitchen and baths? Check!!! First floor owners' suite with new bath? Check, check, and CHECK!!!!! Many homes of this era are simple not insulated, but for YOU ~ 215 S. Shaver Street has all new blown-in insulation.  And if all this were not enough, there are new ceiling fan light fixtures throughout the home.

Now, you old-house aficionados . . . don't you fret! Many original details remain! Many of the walls are the beautiful tongue and groove wainscoting, congruous to the period. Many of the original 4-over-1 windows are in place. Charming period mantel pieces remain over the three original fireplaces (non-functional). The wood floors, now beautifully refinished, are original.

We fell in love with the new open-style kitchen that overlooks the formal dining room. The kitchen is dressed in pretty tile backsplash and outfitted with new appliances. Pretty sidelights on either side of the stove that look out over the back landscape are a nice touch. A small enclosed rear porch leads to a rear deck off the kitchen.

The owners' suite on the main level offers a large walk-in closet and new bathroom with pretty tiled walk-in shower. You'll also find a new combination laundry room & half bath on the main level.

Upstairs, you'll find two bedrooms and full bathroom with an additional small open office area.

This historic Shaver Street home is loaded with curb appeal, from its deep rocking chair front porch, with its brick and architectural wood pillars, to its fresh coat of paint ~ and that handsome black metal roof! The large yard and grounds have been completely and meticulously newly landscaped, and towering mature trees offer picturesque dappled shade.

215 S. Shaver Street is located adjacent to the Brooklyn South Square Historic District, one of Salisbury's TEN historic districts. This means that surrounding homes are all from a bygone era and the neighborhood is chock-full of charm. But because this vintage home is near but not within a designated historic district, City of Salisbury Historic Design Guidelines (and restrictions!) do not apply.

This home is wonderfully situated just blocks from the the vibrant uptown area of Salisbury, and close to the Farmers' Market, two local breweries, two community theaters, and a plethora of restaurants, galleries, unique shops, and the public library. Need to travel? When you live at 215 S. Shaver Street, you have easy (less than a mile) to Interstate-85 and the Amtrak Station in the famous Salisbury Depot is just blocks away.

Now is the time to call or text Realtor® Greg Rapp for your private showing of this like-new vintage home. We promise you, this one will NOT linger on the market! 704.213.6846 is the number to call! Make this gift-wrapped home a gift for yourself!
