”CAPTIVATING”. That is the essence of this charming, updated 1300 square foot, 2 bedroom/2 bath bungalow that comes completely furnished! Everyone knows that Beal Street is known for its cottages that have charm and are characteristically proud examples of Rocky Mount’s history. And this one will not disappoint. From the moment you drive up you are drawn to this home by the large inviting front porch. It is a perfect place to start or end your day. Once inside you will be pleasantly surprised with the spacious and tastefully decorated rooms. 9-foot ceilings, LVT flooring, and numerous windows that allow a lot of natural lighting inside enhance the generous sized rooms. There is a very comfortable living room with space to spread out and relax. The living room is completely open to an enormous dining room, and beyond that, you will find an updated bright kitchen with stainless appliances, granite counter tops, and a beautiful glass tile backsplash. Oh, the meals you can prepare there! Just off the right side of the living room you will find a cozy office that could double as an extra guest room. On the left side of the home, you will find two comfortable bedrooms, each with its own private updated bath. The non-primary bedroom has an entire wall of built-in closets and drawers providing a ton of storage. Outside you will find a fenced backyard oasis, with a covered back porch and patio, perfect for entertaining. And there is plenty of storage space in the detached shed. Beal Street is central to everything — only 3 or 4 blocks to City Lake, Sunset Park, the Tar River Greenway, the Rocky Mount Mill, downtown Rocky Mount, the Event Center, and a short drive to the Sports Complex. 1220 Beal Street is a great place to live! Or perhaps you would be interested in investing in it as an AirBnB or a longer term rental. Did I mention that it comes completely furnished?!?
