Prepare to have your breath taken away! This c. 1886 Victorian Italianate treasure in the heart of Historic Tarboro shows that yes, you can have it all… the awe inspiring craftsmanship of a beautifully preserved home paired with remarkable renovations to provide modern comforts and efficiencies. The charm of this 4 bed/3 bath is endless and must be seen to fully appreciate the rare combination of opulence and warmth. Upon arrival, your eye will be drawn to the carefully curated landscaping that accentuates the beauty of the home, the expansive front porch, and the jaw dropping detail on the woodwork. Once you step inside, you will notice the abundance of natural light and how it draws out details such as tight grained hardwood floors and the intricate woodwork found throughout the home. The kitchen and bathrooms have all been beautifully renovated, as has the doll house out back which would make for a perfect office, home school area, or hobby room. Do not miss a chance to own one of the finest examples of Victorian Italianate architecture in historic Tarboro. There are some that say you can not have it all, but this home proves them wrong, especially since you will be moving in knowing that you have a brand new roof (2020) and recently installed HVAC systems (both in the main home and in the dollhouse). Schedule your showing today to see this exquisite home while you have the chance!
