Own a piece of history! This is for the full parcel totaling just over 3.5 acres and includes the main house, cottage and chapel along with the amazing river frontage! This magnificent home started as a small cabin dating back to 1781. Over the years, additions were made and adornments were added to make the stately home that stands today. Overlooking the Old Catawba River, this 5 bedroom/3 bath home would be perfect for a growing family or as a bed and breakfast. Enjoy afternoon breezes on the front porch while listening to the waters of the river or on either the upper or lower back decks surrounding the brick patio complete with outdoor fireplace. The upper deck also leads to an additional bonus room. Take the newly built stairway down to bank of the Old Catawba River. The home is currently operating as The Historic Bridgewater Inn.
