I was searching to see what the oldest homes were that are for sale in the Raleigh NC area and I was torn between two homes. Please understand I am NOT saying this is the oldest home in the area but it is currently the oldest home available for sale.
The home I chose is 321 W. Margaret Lane in Hillsborough NC. (circa 1800) The reason for the hesitation to include this home is that it was originally a 400 square foot two room kitchen home that has been added on to. However, seeing that this historic homes was the 2009 Historic Preservation Winner and viewing the pictures and reading of all of the time and effort that went into the painstaking saving of this landmark I decided it was extremely worthy and was indeed the oldest home currently on the market in my area of North Carolina.
This home, which was originally a “kitchen house” is situated on the Eno River and has simply breathtaking views from its screened porch and deck of both the Eno River and nature! Some of the remarkable features of this home are:
- Built late 1700’s-1800
- 2626 square feet
- 608 square feet of porches and decks
- Oak Floors
- Vintage lighting
- Viking appliances
- 2 master suites
- .5 acre
This stunning example of restoration, preservation and rehabilitation is currently available for sale at $692,500.00. If you would like more information on this home, some pictures or would like to set up a private preview please feel free to call me at 919.649.6128 or simply send me an email.
