Realtor Blurb:

Majestically perched on the highest point in town, Mountain View Plantation is located above the Historic District close to downtown Morganton. Featuring 4 or 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, it offers a tantalizing opportunity to own one of the area's few surviving plantation homes situated on a stunning 1.5 acre private lot. The home is recognized both locally & nationally as a historic landmark & dates from 1815. It has been lovingly restored with a chef's kitchen complete with granite, high end appliances & custom cabinetry. Relax in the new Sunroom with coffered ceiling or rest by the 40 foot saltwater pool surrounded by lush landscaping & Pennsylvania bluestone. Almost completed at the back drive is a Charleston-style wrought iron gate with stacked stone pillars. With a Master Suite on the main level & 3 additional Bedrooms upstairs, this 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath home offers much versatility with it's gracious rooms, unique architecture and beautiful grounds. Security System, Double garage with extra storage.

My Notes: According to the NRHP paper, this was originally a Quaker style that was remodeled into Victorian and then Colonial Revival; so it has touches from each era. It's really nicely kept up; and the staircase newel and woodwork are very unusual. Screencapped below.
