Love Gothic Revival Cottages! Circa 1882 in North Carolina. $273,000

February 18, 2024

I love gothic revival cottages! All of that exterior trim work is amazing. The house was built in 1882. It is located on 1/2 acre in Plymouth, North Carolina. The Realtor did a huge disservice to this house with the pictures. More of the exterior would have been nice and more inside. The house features a covered front porch, hardwood floors, vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. There are a couple of outbuildings on the property. This home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms and 3,320 square feet. $273,000

From the Zillow listing:


This amazing house is on the National Register of Historic Places and was built between 1882-84. It must be seen to appreciate all the architechtural features. Located just a few blocks from downtown, historic Plymouth on the beautiful Roanoke River, it is rich in history.The 1 1/2 story Gothic Revival Cottage features 3,320 sq.ft. with 12 rooms including 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The frame house is covered by a high hip roof intersected by cross gables. There is much decorative sawnwork featuring inverted fleur-de-lys skirts at the eaves. The interior, distinguished by its 14-foot ceilings, features a center-hall double-pile plan. The dominant staircase in the hall rises front to back in a single run open string stair. In the rear, a shallow hipped roof breezeway connects the house to a detached dining room with board and batten entrance and kitchen. These rooms are screened by an attractive lattice work porch. A small frame gable-roof smokehouse sits in the northern side yard and is now used for storage. The woodhouse, located immediately behind the detached kitchen, was built specifically for storing firewood and is currently used for storage as well. Near the rear property line (lot totals 1/2 ac. +/-), were the stables which have long since been torn down.
