This home has been thoughtfully renovated, retaining much of the historic charm and adding many modern conveniences. The wrap-around front porch is open on the front and screened-in on the side. The original front doors bring you into the large foyer. This is flanked by formal living and dining rooms, both with hardwood floors and fireplaces. The living room also has a bay window and could easily be converted to a downstairs bedroom. The dining room leads to the beautiful gourmet kitchen. This area has been completely updated with new wood cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, a center island and a breakfast bar. There is plenty of room for a table and chairs and there is a sitting area near the rear French doors as well. The kitchen opens to the spacious den which includes a fireplace with gas logs and a wall of built-in custom bookcases.
The adjacent office area is conveniently located next to the den and opens to the screened porch and a small mudroom that leads to the backyard. There is an updated full bath off the mudroom. On the other side of the kitchen, there is a utility room with washer and dryer hook ups and cabinets for additional storage. This leads directly to the attached garage.
The rear deck can be accessed by the French doors in the kitchen. The backyard is fenced and includes a storage building. Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom has a walk-in closet and there is an attached full bath which can also be accessed from the hallway. The second bedroom is roomy as well and has ample closet space.
This completely updated historic home is located next to Lawrence Academy in Merry Hill in Bertie County. Scotch Hall Preserve, a gated waterfront community with an Arnold Palmer designed golf course, is located just down the road and the home is also a short drive from historic Edenton.
