What a Gem, This Queen Anne-style dwelling is a finely detailed house and is attributed to the architect Hill C. Linthicum. Penelope S. McMullan acquired the property in 1898 and the house was built in the 1900's. This two-story Queen Anne home includes projecting gables, wrap-around porch, beautiful woodwork details spindle bands, modillion blocks & a widows walk. Located in the picturesque waterfront town of Hertford NC. Plenty of charm, century old craftsmanship and local history. Six fireplaces, pocket doors, hardwood flooring and more. You really need to see this fascinating home!
My Notes: Diamond in the (slight) rough! It's not in horrible shape; just needs some upkeep and a little updating (I'm not a fan of baseboard heat; but I understand the cost of that vs. putting in HVAC..and cutting into the floors/walls/ceilings). My only other huge complaint is the over-use of whitewash on all that wonderful woodwork. That's going to be a PITA to get off. Bathrooms look a little slap-dash; tub doesn't match the sink; etc. But it's a wonderful location very near the waterfront; in one of the most picturesque and oldest towns in NC. B&B potential to offset renovation costs; would be a good idea. And that entryway fireplace! OMG.
