Vintage 1928 Craftsman Bungalow - Original Details - Priced to Sell

You hear vintage, but on this amazing Craftsman Bungalow...we mean vintage, vintage, VINTAGE!  This 1,803 square-foot, circa 1928 bungalow is FILLED with original vintage details. And Realtor® Greg Rapp with Salisbury Real Estate LLC has it priced to SELL!

Welcome to 206 Rowan Avenue in the Town of Spencer, North Carolina!

Climbing roses and Carolina jessamine spill over a white picket fence as you approach this single-story home.  But it's the details within this fixer-upper that will charm any old-house lover!

Original shiplap and beadboard walls, an amazing butler's pantry with a wall of built-ins is part of a sweet little breakfast room. You'll find more built-in shelves, drawers, and more closets than you'd expect in a home of this era . . . each cedar-lined!

Let's take a walk!

The front veranda was enclosed some years ago, obscuring some of the rich architectural detail here: curved trim, brick pillars, and a large seating area.

In through the handsome front door with its multi-paned sidelights, you'll step into a large living room with one of the home's (3)coal-burning fireplaces (now non-functional).  You'll love the original 4-over-one and 3-over-one windows and wood flooring here. Through to the right and you're in another spacious room: the formal dining room. The rustic whitewashed piano conveys!

We fell immediately in love with the Breakfast Room/Butlers' Pantry, and your walk-through leads you from there into the world's most charming kitchen...untouched by time: Large vintage cast iron & porcelain sink with drainboard, shiplap walls, and beautiful wood floors that with a new finish, would be spectacular!

An adorable rear side porch off the kitchen has its original beadboard walls and has been converted to an efficient laundry room. 

A beautiful center hall with soaring ceilings divides this half of the home from three bedrooms, each with its cedar closet and large, airy windows, and more wood floors throughout. The center bedroom boasts another of the home's fireplaces and was used as a family room or den by the current owner.

We love the primary bath with its clawfoot tub, vintage sink, and pretty honeycomb tile floor.  A second half bath is the sweetest little vintage powder room with shiplap and beadboard wood walls and another antique corner sink.

But wait...there's more!

Downstairs, a walk-out basement with crawl space is at the rear of the home. The space is just perfect for a workshop with beautiful sunny windows overlooking the deep back yard.  

This Arts and Crafts bungalow at 206 Rowan Avenue awaits your TLC. At under $140,000, the home is being SOLD-AS-IS. The house will need some foundation repair and a new roof. The electricity system has been newly rewired (per owner) and about 1/2 the house has been replumbed. 

Location, location!

This wonderful vintage home is in the Town of Spencer's Historic District, with the Library Park at one end of the block and the 2nd St Park at the other end of this neighborhood lined with historic homes. The cute Town Center is just a few blocks away, and the amazing North Carolina Transportation Museum is just a few blocks further.  You'll be listening to that nostalgic sound of the steam engine whistle from your front porch.

If you love old houses and original, vintage detail...and don't mind a little elbow grease to get this home back to its showcase condition...206 Rowan Avenue is the buy for YOU!  And while it does need some TLC, this house is most definitely livable in its current rustic condition.
