Gilchrist Home Place in Howland Rock, Beaufort, NC
This beautiful historic home in Beaufort, on 1.5 acres, is for sale by owner. Located in the heart of the Howland Rock subdivision, this home dates back to the late 1700s and was the original farm house around which Howland Rock was developed. The oldest part of the house has a heart pine skeleton with lath and plaster walls and heart pine floors. The part added in the early 1950s has oak floors and cypress walls and ceilings. The double garage that was part of the 1950s addition is now a studio on one side and a workshop on the other that could become a double garage again or made into a separate ground floor apartment. There is a full bath and washroom adjacent to the garage on the ground floor.
On the main floor, which has about a 4 foot elevation, there are 4 bedrooms, one with an adjacent nursery, 2 full baths, a living room, a formal dining room, a great room, kitchen, a screen porch, a large deck and two smaller decks. The second floor originally had 2 bedrooms but now is 1 large bedroom with room for a bathroom and walk-in closet.
This home is the collective creation of several families over 2 centuries. It now offers the opportunity for further development that accommodates the needs of simple or complex family situations that may involve parents, children and grandchildren. It offers a great environment for all ages. If you have questions or would be interested in viewing this home call or text Doug Gilchrist at 252-342-8381 or message me here. Friends please share.
