Everyone's favorite!  The American Bungalow!  Welcome to 512 Heilig Avenue, listed by Greg Rapp of Salisbury Real Estate LLC, in Salisbury, North Carolina.

This circa 1925 Craftsman bungalow in Fulton Heights is the perfect example of America's favorite residential architectural style. And this sweet 2-bedroom bungalow has all the best-loved features of America's favorite home: the rocking chair front porch spanning the entire front of the house (with hardware already in place for your porch swing!), original wavy glass at the front door, and the beautiful original corner fireplace with original mission-style mantel and mirrored overmantel.

This vintage 1-story, 2-bedroom/2-bath bungalow has been newly restored with a new kitchen and two full bathrooms. Large rooms feature beautifully refinished original heart of pine floors that will take your breath away. The home's original 1925 window trims and moldings are all in place, including a picture rail in both bedrooms and the living and dining rooms along the 10' ceilings.A particularly nice window arrangement in the dining room floods the house with natural light. The home features new light fixtures throughout.

The newly renovated kitchen offers new cabinets, pretty new tile backsplash, granite countertops, new appliances, and more of those gleaming wood floors. A sweet little mudroom off the kitchen does double-duty as the laundry area. A large new deck with an attached storage/utility room is outside the mudroom's back door and will be your favorite place to entertain or dine al fresco! Steps from the deck lead to a small slab patio to expand your outdoor living space!  The deck overlooks your fenced-in backyard, with an 8' stockade-style privacy fence at the side and rear of the property. 

Both bathrooms have new tile; one bath features a walk-in shower, and the tub in the primary bedroom is newly reglazed. AND...the home received a new roof in 2022!

512 Heilig Avenue is located in the desirable Fulton Heights neighborhood, a national historic district, which has an active voluntary neighborhood association that hosts neighborhood events such as a HUGELY popular Halloween Costume Parade, and a Christmas holiday home tour. The neighborhood worked some years ago with the City of Salisbury to have its own park installed. This amazing circa 1925 bungalow is close to area shopping and Salisbury's vibrant downtown with a variety of restaurants, unique shops, entertainment, two micro-breweries, and the new Bell Tower Green park.

126 North Main - SOLD.....124 South Main - FOR SALE!

Opportunities abound in historic downtown Salisbury, North Carolina!  This one ~ just SOLD by Greg Rapp with Salisbury Real Estate LLC ~ is just one example!  But wait, there is more!

This wonderful circa 1890 2-story commercial property, in its prime location along the 100 block of  North Main Street in the center of this vibrant little downtown, offered so many opportunities on the street level - it's no wonder it got snatched up by a visionary developer!  Once a drug store,  - the opportunity to create a restaurant, bar, retail, or more on the street level was irresistible!  The second story, largely unfinished, offered opportunities to create loft downtown living apartments, and Greg's buyer is doing just that!! And as if this amazing building did not have enough going for it, 126/128 N. Main Street comes with FIVE of its very own parking spaces in rear of building! Ask anyone in Salisbury about parking and you'll understand why this is SUCH a special attribute!

Main Street, accessed via its own private front entry and staircase, is where where you'll find a blank slate ready for conversion to residential living. Create one or two apartments here, and perhaps another downstairs!  This wonderful centrally located building can easily accommodate 2-3 apartments. 

AND . . . again . . . abundant parking conveys at the rear of the structure, a rare commodity downtown Salisbury!
