Fabulous 4-Bedroom All-Brick ca 1925 Prairie-Style Home ~ for Sale with Greg Rapp

On a beautifully landscaped corner in the heart of Historic Fulton Heights in Salisbury, North Carolina sits this fabulous ca. 1925 Prairie-Style brick home. And this gorgeous historic house at 629 Mitchell Avenue is now for sale, with Greg Rapp and Salisbury Real Estate LLC.

The lovely neighborhood of Fulton Heights came into existence in 1902 when the Southern Development Company bought nearly 100 acres in south Salisbury and subdivided it for sale. It was a highly desirable residential community, then on the outskirts of Salisbury, with all the modern amenities – waterworks, sewer, electricity and long distance telephone service by Southern Bell! A new electric trolley car system connected Fulton Heights to downtown Salisbury and north to Spencer, NC.

In 1998, the Fulton Heights Historic District was created and placed on the National Register of Historic Places to help preserve the wonderful array of architectural examples in the neighborhood that range in age from 1906 through the 1940s. It consists of over 500 significant structures, including Victorian Queen Anne houses, Colonial, Dutch Colonial, Spanish Colonial, Tudor Revival, Prairie School and Craftsman style residences that range in size from modest cottages and bungalows to more stately homes.

The massive brick home at 629 Mitchell Avenue is one of these stately homes. With over 2,800 square feet of living space, this beautiful home is fronted by an impressive 51'x11' front porch flanked by a sunroom at on end and a screened-in porch at the other.

Through the front door, you enter the main 7-room story of the home ~ yes seven rooms on the ground floor alone! The sprawling living room, with one of the home's two fireplaces, is bookended by the cheerful sunroom at one end and the screened porch at the opposite end. In one direction, you'll find a grand formal dining room with built-ins, so common to the era and style of the home. In another direction, you'll find yourself in a tucked-away den with a laundry room nearby. Here you'll find the staircase to the upper story. The main floor is completed with a cozy kitchen, a separate breakfast room, and a 1st-tory half bath.

The staircase leads you up and around to four large bedrooms. Here, the Primary Suite offers the other of the home's two fireplaces and two Jack & Jill baths. 
Mitchell Avenue in Fulton Heights is one of the main promenades in this historic neighborhood, with beautiful planted medians where the trolley tracks are still reported to travel just under the surface. The sidewalk-lined neighborhood offers trees, gardens, and even its own park, installed with cooperation from the City of Salisbury by the Fulton Heights Neighborhood Association. This rock-solid home at 629 Mitchell Avenue sits along this promenade on a gorgeous large corner lot with mature trees, specimen plantings, hostas, & large Japanese maple. A pergola-covered deck highlights the private zen garden in the fenced-in backyard. Two utterly charming storage sheds nestled into the gardens convey with the sale of the home. A wide concrete drive to the side and rear of the home offers plenty of off-street parking.

There are ten historic districts in Fulton Heights. While all are National Register of Historic Places recognized districts, five of the ten are also locally designated and carry certain restrictions overseen by the City of Salisbury's Historic Preservation Commission. While Fulton Heights is a national historic district, it does not fall under the local oversight restrictions.   

The stately home at 629 Mitchell Avenue offers central AC upstairs only; gas boiler radiator heat, and a new water heater. The finished attic is accessed via a pull-down staircase. While the home is in good solid shape, it needs some porch roof repair and brick repair. A small basement/crawl space houses the boiler and the previous owner had a small workshop there.  There are hardwood floors under carpeting throughout the home.

629 Mitchell Avenue is close to Salisbury's thriving downtown that offers an array of restaurants from hot-dogs to 5-star dining, unique shops, two community theatres, two microbreweries, the public library, and the amazing new Bell Tower Green central-city park.

We are showing minimal photos out of respect for the family that is still moving their parents' items from the home. But 629 Mitchell Avenue is worth seeing in person, since the photos would not do it justice. It is an amazing home in one of Salisbury's most desirable neighborhoods, just waiting to be filled with love. Greg Rapp of Salisbury Real Estate LLC, the area's premier agent for historic and vintage properties, has background and experience with refurbishing older homes and has an eye for looking at important details at every property. Whether helping you sell or helping you buy, we always have our clients' best interest at heart. Call today to see 629 Mitchell Avenue. This amazing house is just waiting to be YOUR home. 704.213.6846 ~ let's do this!

Circa 1915 Bungalow - Totally Refurbished - Historic Spencer North Carolina. For Sale | Greg Rapp | Salisbury Real Estate LLC

Welcome to America's favorite residential architectural style, The Circa 1915 Craftsman Bungalow! Located in the heart of Spencer, North Carolina's Historic District, 408 Iredell Avenue is a stunning restoration from top to bottom! Listed with Greg Rapp of Salisbury Real Estate LLC, this shining home is a must-see!

This classic 4-bedroom house with over 2,100 square feet of living space has been completely renovated with all new roof, brand new kitchen, new bathrooms, and all new HVAC, electric, and plumbing. Save on your utility bills with the newer tankless gas water heater. Even the windows are all newly installed double-insulated beauties.
First floor exterior is original 1915 pebbledash stucco. Pebbledash was an essential element in the palette of the Arts and Crafts movement. Pebbledash is a form of render used for external walls in which the top coat is textured by pebbles and stone fragments to create a rough finish. The wall surface is plastered with render and the pebbledash material thrown and pressed in while still wet. Pebbledash became a popular rendering technique between the 1890s and the 1930s as part of the Arts and Crafts movement which sought to revive traditional building processes as forms of vernacular architecture. It is a highly durable exterior finish, and here in this fine example, both the first floor pebbledash and second story cedar shake shingles are boasting fresh coats of pretty pale sage paint.

Inside, a spacious foyer with original fireplace (non-functioning) greets you ~ with beautiful curved doorways that lead you through to an open and wonderful floor plan. Get ready to be totally wowed by gorgeous original wood floors, all freshly refinished. Take in original Arts & Crafts woodwork, moldings, and fireplace surrounds. New light fixtures sparkle in sun-lit windows.

The sparkling new kitchen offers brand new Shaker-style cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting, and pretty shades-of-grey granite tops counters and a small but efficient center work island. You'll love the soft-close drawers and the Frigidaire appliance package. The original brick chimney, whitewashed to blend with the neutral color scheme provides architectural interest. New luxury vinyl plank flooring here provides cushion underfoot for the home's chef!

Between the foyer and the kitchen, a petite hall provides a transition space where you'll find a tiny first floor half-bath with all new wall and floor tile and the cutest original circa 1915 corner sink, all reglazed to look shining and new.

Circle back through to the beautiful formal dining room and spacious formal living room, with another of the home's original fireplaces with handsome tile surround.

408 Iredell Avenue offers a first-floor primary bedroom suite with a beautiful new bath that offers custom shower doors, shower bench seat, a dual vanity with solid surface counters, AND laundry area. Brand new light fixtures make this room just sparkle!  Outside this rear room, you'll find a spacious new wood deck that overlooks the deep, partially fenced-in back yard. Don't need all four bedrooms? This room would make a great den, family room, or office with deck access!

Upstairs, your steps through three more bedrooms upstairs hush with lush new neutral-toned wall-to-wall carpet and large walk-in closets. . . an amazing treat in a home of this era! Another pretty new bathroom is up here with tub and pretty star tile flooring. More gleaming wood floors are in the upper hall.

Outside, enjoy your morning coffee as the sun rises on your wide, rocking-chair front porch, supported by handsome brick and tapered columns. At the end of a concrete drive, a small single car garage can do double-duty and a large work shed.  The current owners will be painting the garage in the immediate future.  (It has a wood floor that may not accommodate some vehicles.)  And again...that beautiful new deck is the perfect spot for summer al-fresco dining under the stars!

408 Iredell Avenue is just blocks away from Spencer's beautiful Library Park, the popular NC Transportation Museum, and cute town restaurants and shops. For more, it's just a hop skip and a jump to the City of Salisbury's vibrant downtown with unique shops, restaurants and microbreweries, bakeries and coffee shops, the Rowan Public Library and the fabulous Bell Tower Green central city park. High Rock Lake is just down the road, hosting water sports, boating, and swimming. And when you need to get on the road, the Historic Amtrak Station and Interstate-85 are just a stone's throw away. 

Come check it out, you won't be disappointed! Let Realtor® Greg Rapp with Salisbury Real Estate LLC, the area's premier historic property real estate company, show you how wonderful it is to own a piece of history! 704.213.6846 ~ call or text ~ let's do this!
