301 Broad Street

Beaufort NC, 28516


PRICE REDUCED!! - The historic home at 301 Broad St. is a downtown oasis located at the corner of Broad and Orange Street in the quiet west end of Old Town Beaufort. It combines beloved old Beaufort characteristics with modern comforts. The 1883 David Williams house, long known as the ''Conch House,'' is a classic approximately 2,000 square foot, one and a half story Beaufort cottage with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The floors in the house are magnificent: original 12-inch hardwood planks running the entire length of the first floor. Textured walls and ceilings downstairs give the home the historic look of plaster. A full south-facing front porch catches all the summer breezes. An open-type floor plan features a modern kitchen with wood-faced appliances and granite countertops. The first-floor master suite features 9-foot ceilings, with a full bath, a small kitchen with a dining area, leading out onto the magnificent deck and backyard. The suite can be locked-off and used as a ''mother-in-law suite'' or vacation rentals. This suite has a verifiable, proven vacation rental history, having listed on AirBnB, VRBO and Trip Advisor. Upstairs is another spacious bedroom and a smaller bedroom with closets and a full bath. New carpet keeps the upstairs soundproof and quiet. This house has one of the most fabulous outdoor spaces in Beaufort and has been featured the last two years in the annual Beaufort Old Homes Tour. Its professionally designed landscape consists of brick paths and walkways, native plants, an irrigation system with drainage, and the centerpiece is a large Ipe (Brazilian Mahogany) deck and pergola. Landscape lighting on the deck, plantings and around the house make it a sight to behold at night. The tall plants, the arbor and the huge Beaufort-style fence make this a private place to relax and enjoy almost eight months of the year, and a fire-table and outdoor heater can provide additional months. The backyard is completely fenced and perfec pets. The house is newly painted inside and out and has a classic turned-seam metal roof with Gaco silicone roof coat providing 50 years of protection. New items include a tankless water heater, a Santa Fe full house dehumidifier, water-softener system, large heat pump with propane backup, Jenn-Air gas grill with propane hookup so you never need to buy tanks, a large brick paver driveway providing off-street parking and a large garage with workshop. This charming, historic home is move-in ready with most furnishings remaining, if desired. You are an easy two-block walk or bike ride to the renowned Beaufort waterfront and one block from the planned Cedar Street Waterfront Park. This western side of Old Town Beaufort is extremely quiet with the new Highway 70 by-pass. At the end of Broad Street, only a block away is Durwood's Landing, where you can launch a kayak or paddleboard or swim off the floating dock. Walk or bike to your favorite restaurants, The NC Maritime Museum, and boutique shops. Launch your boat or kayak to explore the Rachel Carson Nature Reserve just across Taylor's Creek or the nearby Cape Lookout National Seashore. Leave behind the crowded cities and the traffic: enjoy life in a place where you feel as if you are on vacation every day of the year.
