Be a part of the revitalization of the Loray Mill Village!  This charming 2 bedroom home still has many original features and is walkable to parks, shopping, the recently-rehabbed Loray Mill and more!

Area Information

The Loray Mill Village National Register Historic District is an ideal place to call home. It is a walkable neighborhood, convenient to shopping, restaurants, I-85 and less than 30 minutes Charlotte (even better: it’s only 20 minutes from the Charlotte Airport). The recently redeveloped Loray Mill features both residential and commercial opportunities and has 100,000 square feet of commercial retail space, with future plans for a brewery, café, restaurants, fitness and spa, dry cleaners, neighborhood market and other complimentary services. Preservation NC is undertaking a massive rehab project in the Mill Village, and you can be a part of it all by rehabbing this historic home!

Architectural & Historical Information

Believed to have been built around 1900, this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom Loray Mill Village Type B house (see a plan for a typical Type B house in the photos below) still has many original features, including the original porch and clapboard.  Inside, you’ll find original mantels, wood flooring and 6-over-6 windows. Additionally, there is beadboard on the walls and ceilings on some interior rooms.

212 S. Liberty Street is a contributing structure in the Loray Mill Village National Register Historic District and is therefore eligible for historic rehabilitation tax credits.  Preservation NC will complete minor structural work to repair some termite damage prior to the sale.  This historic property needs a complete rehabilitation, including updates to systems (HVAC, plumbing and wiring) as well as cosmetic updates. In keeping with our goals to revitalize the Loray Mill Village to become a vibrant, diverse and desirable place to live, property restrictions will include a requirement for owner occupancy.
