Area Description: Benson- Often referred to as the best small town of North Carolina. Conveniently located at a huge crossroad of Interstate 95 and Interstate 40. Benson is the halfway point between New York and Florida and between Wilmington, NC, the state’s capital, Raleigh. It takes a little over an hour to reach NC’s beautiful coastline and is only 30 minutes away from downtown Raleigh. Live music can be heard at the Coastal Credit Union, the Red Hat Amphitheater, or the home of the Carolina Hurricanes’ PNC Arena. Benson is close to ACC country with UNC, Duke, and NC State holding down tobacco road. Benson has historic charm and holds the annual Mule Day in late September. Also note, a short drive (10 miles) to the Carolina Premium Outlets for discount shopping for all.
Site Description: 201 E. Church St. sits on a beautiful lot one street over from Main Street. The white fencing gives the pool area the privacy to host events ranging from a cookout to a wedding. Plenty of space to host a large group. You can occasionally hear the distant Amtrak train when it comes through town.
Structural Description: This imposing two-story, double-pile framed house offers a unique blend of southern charm with modern upgrades. Its historic ”T” shape comes with a hip roof above the front portion and gables on either side. The seemingly endless wraparound porch serves its guests an opportunity for relaxation. Entering the home, you immediately encounter beautiful wooden floors, elegant wainscoting, and dentil crown molding. The impressive new kitchen offers granite countertops, light fixtures, new appliances, and an island that serves as an ideal gathering place. Off the study, there is a bedroom with a newly-added kitchenette equipped with a sink, microwave, mini-fridge, and stovetop. There are several bedrooms on the first floor, an oversized laundry room, and a powder room. The stately stairwell with white wooden spindles leads to the second floor where you will find three more bedrooms including the primary. The bathrooms have tile throughout and new clawfoot tubs. The primary bath features double shower heads, two sinks, and mirrors. On one side of the home, there is a private screened-in porch with an astounding 16-person spa. This home can serve as the perfect primary residence; however, opportunistic entrepreneurs should take notice as well. This home can easily be transformed into a wedding venue and an elegant bed and breakfast inn. Come grab some NC barbecue and sweet tea and tour this historic treasure.
