    Description

    One-of-a-kind historic home in Belhaven. Built in 1916 on the Gillespie plantation farm, it was designed and known as a "N.W. Overstreet" house. European Craftsman style with original hand crafted wood banisters and stairs; and the original Tiffany brass door knobs. With approximately 3,120 square feet, not counting the basement. It has 3-4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a sunroom, study and craft room with one of the full baths. This home sits on 2 & 1/3 Belhaven lots with fully fenced backyard including a gated driveway which takes you to multi-car parking area. Home is 2-stories plus basement which was the original maid's quarters when it was first built and includes the original (non-working) fireplace. The basement is not heated and cooled but is divided into 3 rooms and has electricity with ground floor back door access to the covered carport and parking area of backyard. There are sprinklers all around the house, several decks, and copper gutters. There is also a beautiful garden designed and planted for easy maintenance with walking paths and a Gazebo. The 4-yr old roof is custom French Clay Tile made to match the original clay tiles that were over a 100 years old. Inside you will find a large living area, half bath, sunroom, cozy study with fireplace, formal dining room, butler's pantry, kitchen, and craft room/laundry room with full bath. Upstairs you have 3 bedrooms and an office/sunroom plus 2 full updated baths, one with a claw-footed tub. Most all of the windows are updated with vinyl insulated windows that open and shut. The master upstairs, has windows that open for easy access to place your flowers in the craftsman window boxes. All walk-in closets have windows, and there are window seats, built-in cabinets, and bookcases including the upstairs landing. Plus you will see transoms over the doors letting in tons of light. The 4 corner rooms have beautiful views through the huge windows. The floors are pine and oak hardwood. The kitchen is compact and efficient with lots of cabinets and counter space. There are stainless appliances and a large gas range. The previous owner found the kitchen and butler's pantry to be just right for cooking and serving guests and having dinner parties. You will also love the privacy of the side and back decks. The street level of this house is actually the 2nd floor out back, setting you up high in the trees for peaceful views of the yard; especially from the rooms on the 3rd level. The private driveway is gated with remote and so much room for parking behind the house in addition to the two covered parking spaces. The backyard is fenced and cross-fenced so plenty of space for pets and children. Interior of the home has been neutralized with new paint and several Tiffany & Mission style light fixtures have been installed to match the Craftmans style of this period home. With the lush surroundings, you will be living in a wonderland, but so very close to all the conveniences of this historic downtown area. Truly a home like non-other!
