From the Zillow listing:


Once known as the ”town’s finest Queen Anne with its hip roof, wrap-around porch and turned posts, and leaded glass transoms, This significant historic home sits humbly inside the most charming picket fence just minutes from downtown. If the gorgeous woodwork and floors don’t make you gasp surely the french doors, cornices, moldings and mantles will. When you walk into the front door you’re immediately welcomed by the grand foyer with swirl staircase and French doors to the living and dining rooms. The 3-point bay windows, beveled glass doors, a tin ceiling and a formal dining room give more charm and beauty to the Biggs-Coburn House. There is plenty of room here for elaborate parties, B&B guests, art and music studios and anything else you’ve dreamed about. The kitchen is 22′ long and includes the back staircase!!! With a fresh coat of paint and some repairs, this home could rival the most beautiful Queen Anne you’ve seen anywhere. The original one-car, hip-roofed garage has been enlarged to include 3 bays. Built using 8×8 beams. In recent years, the home has been used as a B&B and would be perfect for that again. Williamston is the county seat of Martin County. You’re less than 2 hours to Raleigh and the NC beaches. It’s less than a block to the town’s greenway/river walk. The Biggs-Coburn house is listed on the National Register and is a contributing building in Williamston’s Historic District. Historic tax credits could be available for repair and restoration projects. If you’re looking for a fantastic house to make your own in a friendly small town that’s convenient to everywhere, look no further. This is the house for you! No, it’s not perfect but it’s over 4000 sq ft charming inside and out. Imagine the possibilities. Being sold ‘as is’.
