Charm, dignity and character permeate from the walls of this 160 year old residence built in 1852. One of the older homes in the old Beaufort Seaport, she has witnessed a century and a half of Beaufort history and weathered several hurricanes. The home has been expertly and lovingly restored and revitalized through the years in order to preserve those features of the property that are significant to its historic, architectural and cultural value. This adaptive use provides it with new life and insures that it will continue to be cared for, lived in and admired. The home was last used as part of a popular and award winning bed and breakfast. Enter the downstairs through a large open foyer. Beautiful hardwoods are featured throughout the original part of the house. There are three bedrooms and three baths downstairs, a sitting room, utility area and a full size one bedroom apartment. The apartment once accommodated the owners of the B&B. It features many modern conveniences including a large bathroom and dressing area, an open kitchen, great room with two walls of windows that bathe the area with light and bring the outdoors inside. The second floor is comprised of 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, 2 sitting areas and a laundry/utility room. The back deck is a fabulous bonus outdoor space and is great for entertaining and outdoor living. It could easily be converted to indoor space if so desired. The classic double porches accommodate water views of the Creek, southern salt breezes and waves from passersby along Front Street. As you rock, one can only imagine what this old beauty has seen along the way. This coveted location on Front Street in Beaufort offers views of bustling Front Street and peaks at the boats and craft that maneuver in and out for overnight dockage on their cruise along the Eastern Seaboard. Walk to restaurants, museums and shops that are popular with locals, boat people and tourists alike. This is more than a house….it is a way of life! An accompanied showing is encouraged to get a true feel for this house and the possibilities it offers. The house was recently appraised and is currently priced below that value. Age old elegance…a rare opportunity indeed!
