From the Zillow listing:


Oh my, those columns! Stunning, stately, and spectacular only begin to describe the Mary Pierce Johnson House in Weldon’s Historic District. From the moment you you step out of the car and look at her grandness you’ll be in awe of this beautiful Neo-Classical Revival style home. The full front porch, front door, and lead-glass windows set the stage for what’s to come inside. The super-large center hall welcomes you inside. The oversized windows bring in tons of natural light to each room. The hardwood floors are so beautiful and extend to all rooms and up the grand staircase. There is a parlor on both sides of the hall – one is used as a living room and the other, right now, is an in-home office. The formal dining room with room to seat 10 or more guests has the most amazing fireplace mantle. There is a large primary bedroom, walk-in closet and bath on the right side of the hall. At the back of the hall, the beautiful french doors open to a tile sunroom overlooking the in-ground pool. The high ceilings throughout the home allow extra storage cabinets in kitchen. A butler’s pantry/utility room between the kitchen and dining room offers additional cabinet space along with the washer/dryer. Walk upstairs to another large center hall with 4 bedrooms and 2 jack and jill baths. Use the center hall as a lounge area, recreational space or a quiet pace for reading and meditating. Imagine a spa in your own home. You’ll be so pleased to see that there is original architecture everything. Walk through the back sunroom into an enclosed backyard with in-ground pool and mature landscaping. The patio is perfect for lounging by the pool and entertaining friends. Here’s your chance to own a beautiful piece of history just minutes from I95 and in a growing, charming small town.
