Historic Overlay Homes

3 Beds 3 Baths 100329350 MLS
A rare find in Carolina Place that balances a home in a charming historic city neighborhood with a country feel, due to it being on almost 3 lots next to Wallace Park. Lots in CP have sold for $65,000 each off market. This home gives you the best of both worlds...seclusion while sitting back off the beaten path, yet a stones throw from all of the wonderful things this community has to offer. Within walking distance to Port City Java, the Cargo District, Wallace Park, and downtown. Meanwhile, you are 7-10 minutes from Midtown with the mall, grocery stores, Starbucks, and tons of restaurants. Beaches about 20-30 minutes away. All depends on traffic! Even though this home has gone through an extensive makeover in the last four weeks, if you love the outdoors, you will appreciate the wrap around porch, three decks, off street parking, two storage buildings, all surrounded by birds singing, in a garden setting. Fenced in back yard for fluffy. Oyster pit for summer nights. We love the Fantastic Jasmine covered deck with lights on the lower level. Move in ready and open floor plan. Step down dining room/sunroom, with lots of bright light that has two French doors that open up to the deck area. One upstairs bedroom has a Murphy bed that can be raised if you need extra space. This home offers a master bedroom downstairs, with two bedrooms upstairs. Closets and extra storage galore! Even behind some walls. Can build an accessory building up to 900 sq ft On the lot. Please see survey for more information. If you are not familiar with Carolina Place, this is was one of the first suburban neighborhoods with houses built between 1906 and WWII. It is considered a historic district with charming Craftsman Bungalows, oak trees, sidewalks and 13 acre Wallace Park. Easy to rent. Furniture and appliances negotiable.
