1890 Queen Anne Victorian - Windsor, NC

4 Beds; 1.5 Baths; 2762 Sq.Ft.
101 W Granville St. Windsor, NC 27983
.50 Acres
Built: 1890

Realtor Blurb:
Historic Victorian with beautiful turrets, full porch across the front, inviting foyer, and tons of room! Built circa 1890, the marble front steps, glass door knobs, antique door locks, fireplaces, carved door trim, and large windows are just of few of the features of this magnificent nineteenth century mansion. Off the foyer is the living room, dining room and kitchen, which are all part of the original structure. At the end of the foyer is an addition that was used as a florist shop for many years and would make a terrific game room, library, or home business. The second floor has four bedrooms, a full bath, and the stairs to the attic. The attic is a full attic with tons of room for storage. The home is ready for renovation! It is a very solid structure and walking around the attic one can see the quality of wood used in the construction. There is some pealing paint and wall paper and the plaster is cracked and falling in a few places. The living room has some water damage as a result of windows on the second floor being open slightly and some mold is apparent. Outside along the eaves, there is some wood rot and the porch needs a few boards and pickets. The fireplaces are completely functional and actually were used by the the last tenants. The 1/2 Acre lot has wrought iron fencing along Granville Street and Queen Street and wire across the rear and down the west lot line. Behind the home is a large concrete block barn/garage/workshop with a sliding door and plenty of room for a classic car or carriage. There is also a three-bay, open front building perfect for use as a carport or boat storage. Between the two buildings is a fenced area that was, at one time, a vegetable garden. This beautiful old home has all the characteristics of a wonderful historic mansion. With some imagination, determination, and effort, this can once again be the exquisite mansion it was over a hundred years ago and the center of attention in the Historic District of the historic town of Windsor.

My Notes: Serious potential! All the original elements are there; down to the original walkway to the house in front. Inviting price for the serious rennovator. I love this! Diamond in the rough does not do it justice!
UPDATE 2/4/16: Added pictures - someone went in and got a couple different angles; finally captured the kitchen; and took pictures of the damage. Good to koow
