The Purple Orchid Bed & Breakfast was established in 2002 in an Historic and Classic Queen Ann Victorian home that was completely renovated in 1990. Originally constructed in 1888, it was crafted by the owner Sam Byrd & Biltmore carpenters w/ the most exquisite wood available at the time Inc. chestnut, oak, heart pine, black walnut, cherry, & a rare & beautiful blistered poplar. The original lacework can be seen around the wrap around porch. This meticulous woodwork graces the walls, floors, ceilings, 6 fireplaces, stairs & rails of this gracious home. This is a very strategic location for a B&B or any business on Hwy 19E, easy access! Parking for 10, Southern exp. Formerly a full B&B, there is no zoning here so you can repurpose this awesome property to suit your own needs! Mature gardens.
My Notes: I know this is a tad over-muddled in certain parts of the house - no doubt due to turning it into a B&B - but the original house seems to be mostly intact. I've added pictures from several different sites.
