    Description

    Rare Opportunity to own a piece of history in downtown Manteo. The "Davis Home" boasts a richness in character, history, location, and infinite possibilities. This historical home constructed by some of the outer banks most iconic builders, John Wilson and George Twyne, sits on a 30,238 sq. ft parcel fronting both Sir Walter Raleigh and Agona St. Preliminary plats on file to subdivide into 2, 3, or 4 lots depending on removal of current structures. 45,000 bricks were brought to the property by horse and carriage from the docks of Downtown Manteo. All the features inside are original and have been preserved enough to be able to be reused if the house is renovated or rebuilt. The owner has fond memories growing up in the "Davis Home" from teaching school on the attic stairs to playing with the neighborhood kids on the enormous covered porch. As you enter this amazing piece of history you are greeted with the stately covered porch. Inside you will find the parlor (piano will convey and has been the center piece since 1920), the dining room with a wood burning fireplace, and a large pantry/utility room connecting the kitchen which remains completely original from the day it was built. The sinks, cabinets and the tile floor (though in rough shape) remains untouched. Across from the kitchen is the den, which is said to be the heart beat of the house. The craftsman style staircase will take you to the second level to four bedrooms. 2 bedrooms have a sound view and one bedroom has a private entrance to the shared full bath, but not considered the master. The barn is located towards the back of the property near Agona St. and was the original home to Davis Boatworks, established in 1932. The Davis's built world record holding racing boats out of that barn and also helped other local Manteo boat builders construct boats during World War II for the Navy. The yard is well maintained with beautiful pecan and magnolia trees. This is the perfect undertaking for a history buff looking to restore a piece of Outer Banks history, a bed breakfast, or someone who would like to build on one lot and sell the other 2 or 3.
