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

This Type B House (see an example of a typical Type B House in the photos below) in the Loray Mill Village has been altered over time, but could once again be a mill village charmer!  Although the original clapboard has been covered and the windows replaced, there is still the original wood flooring inside, as well as some of the original woodwork.

216 S. Highland Street is a contributing structure in the Loray Mill Village National Register Historic District and is therefore eligible for historic rehabilitation tax credits.  This historic property needs a complete rehabilitation, including updates to systems (HVAC, plumbing and wiring) as well as cosmetic updates.With updates to systems as well as cosmetic updates, and the re-installation of the beadboard that would have been inside, this historic property with mature shade trees on the easy-to-maintain lot will make a wonderful home once again. 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.
