Preservation NC Blurb:
Built in 1856 in the Greek Revival style for Allmond Holmes, this house was remodeled in the Neo-Classical style by his son Dr. Frank Holmes. The imposing colossal portico and classical porch dominate the academically detailed exterior. The exceptional interior features paneled wainscot, an intricate staircase, and Greek Revival door and window surrounds. One front parlor mantel is marble, and the mantels in the other parlor and the four bedrooms are vernacular Greek Revival.

This property has been owned by only two families, the Holmes family from 1856 until 1936 and the Joseph Reynolds family since 1936. The main house sits on a one acre lot in the middle of a residential block on Main Street in Clinton, North Carolina. Other buildings on the property include the original smokehouse, a brick guest house (currently rented), and a carriage house that was converted into a three bedroom house in the early 1950’s.

The main house has approximately 3,466 square feet of heated living space, a wrap porch, an upstairs porch, and a small porch off the downstairs bedroom. Downstairs are two front parlors, a wide entrance hall, dining room, butler’s pantry kitchen, sun room, and a bedroom and bath. Upstairs are three bedrooms, one bath, and a storage room that could become another bath. The original kitchen was converted to an attached garage but could be turned into a spacious kitchen.

My Notes: SO nice! All architectural details look to be intact. Love the screen french doors. Painted staircase again; but that's survivable. Quaint small town. Good amount of trees. TWO separate small houses included; so great price!
