With just over 500 people, Hamilton, NC, has that small town feel that many people yearn for. The village sits on the highest point of the Roanoke River and has a good number of historic homes. In fact, Hamilton was once a thriving and beautiful Victorian port town. Many of its homes are listed in the National Historic Registry. Alas, its heyday has past, and, although a revitalization campaign began in 2013, many of the downtown historic properties need some form of restoration work.
Here’s your chance to get in on the ground floor of a revitalization effort with this circa 1850 home. The listing agent classifies it as a Greek Revival with Victorian additions. I don’t think I agree with the Greek Revival part, but in any event check out the wonderful wrap-around porch, four fireplaces, pine floors, fabulous staircase and spacious rooms. The yard is on a corner lot, and a historic outbuilding on the property is ready for restoration, too.
