Exquisite Craftsman-style house in Shelby’s premiere historic district!
Located in one of Shelby’s finest, most desirable and attractive residential neighborhoods, the W. J. Roberts House is a fine example of the Craftsman-style House with both Colonial and Tudor Revival influenced elements. The house features one of the most monumental staircases in Shelby and has four spacious bedrooms, two baths, a formal parlor, sitting room, dining room, original sleeping porch, servant staircase, and a “Dutch oven” kitchen, which is indigenous to Cleveland County.
A contributing structure in the Central Shelby National Register Historic District, the house is potentially eligible for the state rehabilitation tax credits. It is sold “as is” and is under the protection of preservation covenants through Preservation North Carolina. It is livable in its current condition, but will need extensive upgrades to all mechanical systems as well as cosmetic improvements for today’s living.
Within easy walking distance of Shelby’s nationally recognized tree-lined Uptown district, specialty retail shops, many restaurants, farmers market, government offices, banks, churches, arts council, the Earl Scruggs Center and the Don Gibson Theatre are all easily accessible. Shelby City Park and its acclaimed historic Carrousel is nearby. Shelby is also home to the American Legion World Series.
