This move-in ready Greek Revival home was built about 1855 and is located near the West Railroad Street Historic District. It was functionally renovated in 1983 with kitchen and bath updates being completed in 2016. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is sited on a large lot with its rear half being thickly wooded. The home has a large entrance hall, living room, dining room, den, kitchen and spacious pantry. The master bedroom has a large walk in closet. The floors in the entire house (except baths and kitchen) are original heart pine. There are 6 functioning fireplaces with 4 having original heart pine mantels. Many of the doors are original 4 paneled mortise-and-tenon heart pine. The front half of house has 12’9” ceilings, and the rear half has 9’ ceilings. A section of the back yard is fenced. There is also a nice storage building in the back yard.

Currently, exterior maintenance is minimal as vinyl siding and replacement windows were installed about 7 years ago. It has been owned for 35 years by the family who did the restoration in 1983.

La Grange is home to about 3,000 people and located approximately 1.5 hours from Raleigh/Durham and the Crystal Coast/Morehead City area. Greenville and East Carolina University are only about 45 minutes away, and Kinston is a mere 20 minutes with its hip restaurants, brewery, distilleries and other night life.
