The Leak House is a classic Colonial Revival style house designed by J.H. Hopkins, one of Greensboro’s most esteemed architects, and built in 1913. It is designated as a contributing structure in the Fisher Park National Register Historic District and eligible for federal and state historic preservation tax credits for qualifying rehabilitation expenses. The house is perched atop a hillside that rises from a stately granite retaining wall, all located on a generously-sized lot of almost half an acre on one of the city’s primary thoroughfares. A large, unfinished attic could be leveraged to boost total finished space to over 5,000 square feet. A large paved parking area is tucked behind the house. Uses for the home include: professional offices, upscale apartments, or a single-family residence.
