Main Street home offers modern amenities and picturesque view

Located at the corner of West Main Street and Hackney Avenue, this beautiful three story home is the perfect blend of new construction and old charm positioned in the heart of Washington’s downtown historic district on the water. 

“It’s a beautiful home and it’s a perfect house for somebody that wants to live downtown but doesn’t want to live in an old house,” said Lydie Jennings, a realtor with the Rich Company. 

The home was built in 1989 as an infill home. It resides in Washington’s historic district and was built as a way of utilizing the undeveloped property along the waterfront section of West Main Street. Prior to being placed on the market late last year, the home has undergone several renovations to modernize or repair existing features. 

“The previous owners did a full renovation to the house. The roof was done in 2019 and the HVAC was done partially in 2018 and the other part was done in 2014,” said Jennings. 

In addition to these renovations, the kitchen has also been renovated to incorporate stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Its location towards the back of the home ensures you are never far from a breathtaking view of the Pamlico River while cooking a new recipe or enjoying a meal with your family.  

“There are lots of people who have always loved downtown and wanted to move downtown but didn’t want to deal with the maintenance of an older home so this gives you that,” said Jennings. 

A grand staircase in the home’s foyer will take you to the second floor where all four bedrooms are located. The master suite encompasses almost half of the second story and offers picturesque views of the river from almost every window. The three remaining bedrooms share one bath and offer their own stunning views to boot.  

Hidden away in the utility room, a closed in staircase leads you to the third story. A large finished space resides at the very top of this home, ready to be transformed into almost any space you can think of. 

“One of the things I think is really nice about it is the third floor room. It would be perfect for a home theater or a playroom or party room,” said Jennings. 

In addition to the bonus room on the third floor, the home also features a partially finished basement and a three car garage at the back of the home. The Pamlico River is present throughout the home and can be enjoyed on the back porch, which also features a completely enclosed space for use when the weather won’t cooperate. 

This four bedroom, four bathroom home is available through the Rich Company. If you have any questions, contact Lydie Jennings, the real estate agent for the property.
