105 W King St, Edenton, North Carolina
Joseph Hewes House / ECU Digital Collections
According to Perry & Co. Sotheby's International Realty:
The Joseph Hewes House, named for a signer of the Declaration of Independence who is believed to have once owned the property, was built in 1756. This Colonial-era residence is in the heart of Edenton's historic district, just steps from the waterfront and downtown shops and restaurants. This handsome 4-bedroom, 2 ½ -bath home has been enlarged multiple times over the years, most recently with a wonderful kitchen addition. The five-bay center-hall plan home is flanked on both sides by porches, and retains much of its original charm and woodwork, including flooring, mantles hardware, and seven fireplaces. The master bath has been recently updated and a fabulous walk in closet added - rare in historic homes! Three guest bedrooms share a full bath, and permanent stairs to the third floor make a great space for a playroom or convenient storage. There are lovely gardens and a storage building in the rear fenced yard. This is a wonderful opportunity to own an Edenton gem!
