Waterfront! Temperance Hall, Circa 1851 in Hertford, North Carolina. $475,000

May 30, 2020


My friend, Susan Beckwith, has put her beautiful waterfront home on the market! I have visited and stayed at her home, it is gorgeous inside and out! Even though this home is waterfront, Hertford is not in a flood zone! Temperance Hall was built in 1851. It is located on .59 acres in Hertford, North Carolina. Such a friendly town where people just invite you inside their homes! Susan restored this house and you will love all of the original features still intact inside. Make sure to watch the interior video tour at the top of this post. We go over the history of Temperance Hall. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,752 square feet. $475,000

From the Zillow listing:


Built in 1851, The Temperance Hall has the elegance & class of yesterday yet has been meticulously restored with the modern convenience & style of today. The floor plan has been opened to give an ease of flow from the formal living and dining rooms all the way to the den and gourmet kitchen with an over-sized island. The master bedroom with walk in closet & full bath has just one of the 4 porches that over look the professionally landscaped grounds of this riverfront, bulkheaded corner lot with dock, detached garage/workshop. Wood floors, metal roof, covered porches, HUGE rooms…so much more!
