Own an historic cottage in Edenton, NC that gives you the downtown life! Walk to the water, shopping and dining at your leisure. Located on East Church St. in the heart of the historic district, this home was once part of the 1802 Edenton Academy. It was dismantled and cut in half and relocated to its present site in 1895. Much of the original Federal style finish remains, including nine-over-six sash windows, Federal window surrounds and molded sills, and some wood flooring. The modest Eastlake mantles were added in 1805. Recent updates include a remodeled kitchen, new HVAC, and fresh paint throughout. Natural light gives this two story home a spacious feeling with a living room, dining room, full bath and den downstairs and three bedrooms, a sitting room and small bath upstairs. The back yard of the property is very deep with ample space for an addition to the home and a garage. This home is prominently located between the adjacent Edenton Academy and the historically significant home of James Iredell, one of the first U.S. Supreme Court justices appointed by President George Washington. Don’t miss this affordable opportunity to own a piece of history!
