Charming turn of the century Victorian house located within walking distance of historic downtown Elkin and minutes from the center of the Yadkin Valley wine country.
Enjoy the charm of a classically constructed original home built for Elkin’s first doctor. Sit a spell on the large, inviting wraparound porch and imagine yourself transported back to the early 1900’s.
Enter the house to a lovely mix of antiques and modern conveniences. On the main floor is a parlor, formal living and dining rooms, kitchen and family room. The bedroom and bathroom (en suite) on main floor has a large walk-in shower, styled with subway tile. The second floor landing leads to two bedrooms with queen beds, a sitting room with twin bed, and a large full bathroom (complete with towel warmer.)
The porch is a perfect setting to relax after a day of exploring nearby Stone Mountain, Civil War trails, vineyards and antique stores. Visitors seeking more active adventures can raft the Yadkin River or zipline across a local winery.
