Perseverance & Tenacity Sold this c. 1891 Victorian Gem

At the gateway to the Historic Park Avenue/Long Street Historic District, 414 Park Avenue, the oldest house in the District, the circa 1891 Wright-Kesler/Cannon Mills House, with nearly 4,000 square feet of living space, is everything the restoration craftsman wants in a historic Victorian.

Like many Victorian homes of its day, 414 Park Avenue's exterior is graced with a wonderful 500 square-foot wrap-around front porch and two sitting balconies. The circa 1891 Victorian home features enormous rooms, hardwood floors, ample center hallways, and nine . . .yes (9) . . . fireplaces!

Yet, this pivotal home at the gateway to its historic neighborhood was not without its challenges. Left empty and mid-restoration for a handful of years, this beautiful 5 bedroom, 4 bath Victorian was livable but needed some attention!

Listed by Realtor® Greg Rapp of Salisbury Real Estate LLC in July of 2022, the home definitely caught the attention of interested buyers, but for one reason or another, at least two contracts fell through! But Greg knows that a project home like this sprawling Victorian takes perseverance and tenacity on the part of a dedicated real estate agent. Greg also knows that the right buyer is out there, every time, . . . and that is exactly what transpired. Today, the oldest house in the Park Avenue/Long Street Historic District is home to new people! Welcome home, 414 Park Avenue!
