The circa 1907 D.C. Bradshaw House is one of ten pivotal properties in the North Long Street-Park Avenue National Historic District, built by David Clarence Bradshaw and occupied by his family until 1944. The late Victorian home is beautifully constructed with a third-story turret with slate roof and copper detail, expansive wrap-around porch, stained glass oval windows, hand-carved newel posts, and so much more.

As you enter the home, you are greeted by a beautiful staircase to the third floor, as well as an interior half-round transom and 15-lite door that brings you into the main downstairs hall. There are numerous exquisite doors, as well as six fireplaces, ornate mantels, 10-foot ceilings, wainscoting, and original trim. The Bradshaw House is owned by Historic Salisbury Foundation and underwent a 2024 stabilization including pebbledash and trim exterior repair, complete turret restoration, porch column replacement, exterior paint, new roof, and more.

The gorgeous home is situated on a large corner lot next to the McCubbins-McCanless-Clark showstopper, which was featured on This Old House! The D.C. Bradshaw House is a historic home lover’s dream and offers so much potential for the right person. Extensive renovation is required, including HVAC, electrical, plumbing, flooring, kitchen and baths. The house is 4,330 square feet and has six bedrooms, two bathrooms, and numerous other living spaces. Property was used as a veteran’s home for many years and is now returning to single-family.

As a pivotal structure in a National Historic District, this property is eligible for State Historic Tax Credits, which would enable the new owner to recoup up to 15% of renovation costs! Home is protected by Historic Salisbury Foundation’s covenants. The floorplan is available on their website, www.historicsalisbury.org.
