East Main Street is lined with stately well kept homes in a most convenient location. This Princess Anne Victorian has immense presents in this community. |
We suspect the home was built by Tanker Cropper in 1906, who built the majority of the homes in this neighborhood during this time period. Craftmanship of detailed molding, carved panels and ornate mantels, being a tell tale sign of Cropper homes. This foyer is 15 x 16 with hardwood flooring and a bright peaceful reception area.
These french doors are the introduction to the parlor.
The turret shape transcends from the 1st floor to the attic, providing these lovely bright areas to ponder the day away.
The south turret view, see how the shape continues to each floor.
The sitting room is quite massive , 16 x 25 with 9 1/2' ceilings and direct access to the porch. Where you see the chairs to me would be a perfect spot for a formal dining area. A mature magnolia tree shadows the windows to allow just the right amount of light.
We are still in the sitting room that has direct access to the kitchen and porch.
The parlor is pretty and bright with its ornate mantel, hardwood floors, high ceilings and turret sitting area. 15 x 16
Leaded glass china cabinet is a original feature of the dining room. The formal dining room in recent years had a 1/2 bath installed, used as a 1st floor bedroom, seems to me the best use for this room. 15 x 16.
Direct access to the wrap-around open porch from the dining room/1st floor bedroom.
Iron sounding board is good to go, little tunning and your all set to entertain. I maybe able to talk the seller into conveying the piano.
My favorite of the many mantels in this home, lets go see the kitchen.
Classic country kitchen of the time with adjacent mud room and pantry/wash room. Also a back stairs to the maid's quarters. 15 x 20.
Only need to sign up and this old phone is ready for calls. I've been told that if the electric goes out, that it does from time to time, this old telephone will continue to work.
Once the sole use was as a pantry, but in recent times dual use as a utility room too.
Either chatting with the neighbors or the children that pass by on the side walks that run the length of the town, this is a lovely spot to while away the hours.
View of the ever so sturdy staircase. Note the carved panels under the stairwells. Lets view the 2nd floor.
Morning light introduces the day in this 15 x 16 bedroom. Window seat is a special spot created by the turret shapes.
There was so much light in the landing between the bedrooms that my photographing skills only allowed this photo. Newly plastered curved walls with arched entry, most attractive in person.
Freshly painted is this 15 x 18 bedroom with its custom radiator. This is a warm house with each room having the cast iron radiators with steam heat. Also quite cool with transoms above each door and elongated windows in each room.
Originial glass lights convey also this amour in the hall. See the transom above the door.
The southwest bedroom is quite spacious too, 15 x 16.
This being the smallest bedroom is still quite a charmer with its backstairs directly to the kitchen and to the attic. 10 x 12.
Here I am in attic, photographing inside the turret , wow the construction of days gone by is most impressive.
View of one of the windows in the attic. The attic is the same size of the entire 2nd floor with access through a proper staircase. If you had a need for more finished space this would be wonderful location.
The curved walk ways lead to doors on the wrap-around porch on each side of the home.
View of the neighborhood.
The grounds consist of approximately .60 of an acre, considered two town lots. Mature apple tree, magnolia, holly, pecan, grace the land.
Set well apart from the house is this functional 2 car garage. There is garden shed too.
The home is filled with light from every angle.
View of the backyard.
