Overflowing with Southern charm and grandeur, this exquisite 1908 historic home will exceed expectations! Robert G. Lassiter, paving contractor and business man, built this home and it is the earliest surviving example of Neo-Classical Revival architecture in the town of Oxford. The Ionic columns are stately and the porches are inviting—one look at them has you day dreaming about rest and relaxation! The period carriage under the porte-cochere adds additional charm and gives a nod to days gone by. The original Ludowici green tile roof and the widow’s walk crown this stunning mansion.
Inside you’re greeted by double parlors, original pocket doors and the vast center hall–are you already planning your parties? In the parlors and throughout the home you’ll find eight original fire places with beautiful mantles and unique tile surrounds. Wainscoting, crystal chandeliers and incredible molding and detail are the true “jewelry” of this beautiful home! These type of features just don’t exist anymore in modern builds! Through the years, there have been some significant changes. In the 1920’s, the screened porches on the back of the home (both the main level and the second level) were enclosed. This created more usable living space and two beautiful sun rooms. The main level sun room includes a wood burning granite fireplace as its focal point. The upper sun room is used as a media room/bonus room. Connecting the two spaces and levels is an elevator that was installed approximately in the 1930’s–how convenient is that?!
There are two master suites, one newly renovated and its spa bathroom is magazine-worthy! It features Carrara marble counter tops and tile shower, custom cabinetry with soft close doors and a showpiece soaking tub! All four bedrooms are very spacious and perfectly appointed with exquisite furniture. You will also find closet organizational systems to make life as easy and tidy as possible. Yes, this home has abundant space for regular life, entertaining and storage needs plus the detached two car garage includes a separate apartment with an additional 911 square feet, a full kitchen, full bath, laundry and balcony!
The two decks, brick patio, in-ground pool and gazebo create the perfect oasis to fully enjoy all that NC outdoor life offers. Guests and family alike will appreciate the bathhouse just steps away from the pool! The landscaping & gardens are the perfect back drop to this very special, exquisite home.
