Circa 1915 Restored Bungalow ~ SOLD ~ by Greg Rapp & Salisbury Real Estate LLC

Welcome to America's favorite residential architectural style, The Craftsman Bungalow! Located in the heart of Spencer, North Carolina's Historic District, 408 Iredell Avenue is a stunning restoration of a circa 1915 bungalow from top to bottom! Listed with Greg Rapp of Salisbury Real Estate LLC, this  vintage home  - built with quality materials and construction - and NEW REMODEL has a new owner!

408 Iredell Avenue:  SOLD by Greg Rapp | Salisbury Real Estate LLC

This classic 4-bedroom house with over 2,100 square feet of living space was completely renovated with all new roof, brand new kitchen, new bathrooms, and all new HVAC, electric, and plumbing (with tankless gas water heater!) and all newly installed double-insulated windows!

First floor exterior is original 1915 pebbledash stucco ~ 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.

Our favorite features of this beautiful home include the spacious foyer with original fireplace (non-functioning) ~ with beautiful curved doorways and an open and wonderful floor plan with gorgeous original wood floors, all freshly refinished. We loved all the original Arts & Crafts woodwork, moldings, and fireplace surrounds. And the newly installed kitchen!  Oh, WOW!

The Spencer North Carolina Historic District is just blocks away from the 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.

This beauty is no longer available, thanks to the marketing reach of Realtor® Greg Rapp with Salisbury Real Estate LLC, who closed the deal on the home mid-August 2023!  

But there are a number of amazing vintage homes available in the Salisbury/Spencer/Rowan County area ~ conveniently located between the greater metro areas of Charlotte, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem, North Carolina....without all the traffic and other 'big city' complexities!
