FOR SALE: Vanhook-Worsham-Stamps House

A truly unique two-story cottage, the 1852 Vanhook-Worsham-Stamps house echoes the second phase of the development of Greek Revival architecture in North America. It is an excellent example of the movement to take the look and feel of grand Greek Revival plantation homes found throughout the American South and create smaller homes that reflected their small-town surroundings in Caswell County, NC.

Vanhook-Worsham-Stamps house is a two pin log home that features a number of Greek Revival characteristics, including street-facing façade and gable, a hip roof with widely overhanging eaves and clapboard siding, while the upper casement windows give rise to a shallow second story. The windows reflect mid-19th century glazing styles, which are double hung with six panes to a sash, while two exterior chimneys are placed according to the needs of the home. The east chimney has a number of inscriptions, including the date of construction and multiple initials. The double front doorway makes a statement that is also consistent with the architectural style and the stone wing on the back remains from the original 1780 structure. Woodwork throughout the home, including but not limited to floors, molding, wainscoting and the staircase, is completely intact and dates to 1852.

The double front doorway open to an unusually wide hall. The Drawing Room (14′ 10 1/2″ X 19′ 3 3/8″) with fireplace to the left and the Dining Room (14′ 11 3/8″ X 19′ 3 3/8″) with a second fireplace and door to the outside. The Kitchen (19′ 4″ X 15′ 4 1/8″), constructed of stone and dated to 1780, is located adjacent to the Dining Room and is accessed via an additional hallway that provides an excellent location for a future half bath/powder room. The second floor features two bedrooms and a wide hall.

The Vanhook-Worsham-Stamps house has been completely dismantled, cataloged and stored by a renowned builder in Caswell County, NC.
