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.
