1870 Italianate - Reidsville, NC

5 Beds; 3.5 Baths; 4599 Sq.Ft.
803 S. Main St. Reidsville, NC 27320
1.74 Acres
Built: 1870

Realtor Blurb:
One of a kind historic beauty on one of the loveliest streets in Reidsville. Home sits on 1.74 acres. So much potential! Property to be sold "as is" with no repairs or guarantees. Buyer to verify all info.

My Notes: This is the Col. Andrew J. Boyd House; mentioned in the NRHP paper here (and screencapped below). More information on Col. Boyd and a picture of the house here. This house is also on Old House Dreams here. It seems in very good condition with minimal re-muddling; the estate sale of the last owner was in Oct.-Nov. of 2014; so no new families have tried to modernize it yet. To me, after seeing the below original pictures; the outside shutters look out of place. Beautiful high ceilings; staircase; double doors. Love the porch! The Street View here has it in a fairly nice area and good trees/landscape possibilities. I think she is just waiting for the right keeper. Doesn't seem like a huge amount of restoring to original is needed; just some upkeep; a little in-style updating; and maintenance is all that will be required of the new owners.
