Description

Situated on expansive grounds in the heart of Downtown Manteo, one of the most unique and historically rooted homes on the Outer Banks is awaiting its next chapter. Constructed in 1920 by distinguished local builders John Wilson, Sr. and George Twyne, the Davis Home has an abundance of character and craftsmanship in the details throughout. Step inside from the huge covered front porch into the entry hall which boasts ample natural light, high ceilings and a beautiful wood staircase. The hall gives way to the front parlor which includes a baby grand piano that has been the centerpiece of the room since shortly after the home was built. The dining room features a wood-burning fireplace. A large pantry and utility room connect the dining room and kitchen. Continuing into the kitchen youll find all cabinetry, sink, fixtures and flooring are original. A half bathroom is located just off the kitchen and foyer area. Also on the main level, the formal living room showcases another wood-burning fireplace. Upstairs, on the second floor a large open hall leads to each of the four massive bedrooms, half bath and the full bathroom. This home has an abundance of closet space, original hardwood floors and high ceilings, views of Shallowbag Bay and the Roanoke Sound from the southeast facing bedrooms, plus a third story walk up floored attic. In the back yard, adjoining Agona Street, is the home of the original Davis Boatworks where the first Davis family boats were built in the garage and barn. The well maintained 30,000 square foot lot spans from Sir Walter Raleigh Street all the way through the block to Agona Street and is adorned by several pecan and magnolia trees. This property offers a multitude of opportunities including restoration of the home to its former beauty or rebuilding a replica using the original house plans to provide an exceptional primary residence or investment property. Preliminary plans are available showing potential to subdivide into two, three or four parcels. What a wonderful place to build your future! Schedule your showing today!
