From the Zillow listing:


Situated on a prominent corner in Edenton’s famed historic district, the Littlejohn house exemplifies the classic architectural style preferred by prosperous Edentonians during the town’s early years as a bustling seaport. Featuring classic two-tier porches, a pair of impressive shoulder chimneys, and nine-over-nine windows, this center-hall plan home is a true gem awaiting restoration. According to Tom Butchko, revered Edenton historian, this home boasts one of the finest Federal interiors in Edenton. Notable highlights of the refined woodwork include impressive wainscoting, mantles and doors, incredible wide wooden floorboards and high ceilings. Spacious parlors with matching fireplaces flank either side of the main entry hall. Across the rear elevation are two original one story shed rooms that have most recently served as a bedroom and kitchen with direct access to the back porch and rear entry. Upstairs, there are 2 bedrooms and one full bath. Located just one block from Edenton Bay and two blocks from downtown shops and restaurants, this fine home is an historic preservationist’s dream canvas!
