From the Zillow listing:


Sycamore, ca 1718, is an impeccably maintained, authentic historic gem perched on the shore of the open waters of the Albemarle Sound. Originally sited on a farm 12 miles away, the house was moved to its current waterfront location and expanded in 1972. Careful consideration to historic charm and character has been important in every renovation, including recent kitchen and bathroom updates. Formal living and dining rooms flank the center entry hall, and a large family room – featuring water views, a stunning fireplace, and one of the best screened porches in Edenton – is the heart of this unique home. One small bedroom and bath are downstairs, and 4 bedrooms with 2 and a half baths are on the second floor. The house sits beautifully angled on the lot and a half, lending incredible curb appeal. A pier and covered boat lift are in place. Finding a historic home with modern updates on the water is RARE! Horniblow Point is a quiet, cul-de-sac, established neighborhood with just one street that parallels the Albemarle Sound. It’s less than 10 minutes to historic downtown Edenton, and less than 5 minutes away from the golf course.
