Fresh as a Daisy ~ Circa 1915 Bungalow. For Sale with 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 ~ and you'll get the best of both worlds:  A vintage home built with quality materials and construction, and a NEW REMODEL fresh as a daisy!

This classic 4-bedroom house with over 2,100 square feet of living space is priced UNDER $300K and 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 as a large work shed.  The  workshop building has been painted since these photos were taken.  And while technically a 'garage, the structure 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.
