Rare opportunity to own a piece of Outer Banks History. One of the original home places on Roanoke Island, the Evans Home built in the mid 1870's is an architectural masterpiece of old and new. The entire home was completely renovated (Designed by Architect John Wilson and Construction by Lee Tugwell, plus various craftsmen from North Carolina and Virginia) and restored in 1989 and took 2 years to complete. The sprawling home has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and 1 half bath, plus a studio apartment and is sitting on one of the largest parcels in Downtown Manteo. The front entrance foyer opens to both Sir Walter Raleigh and Agona Streets, has marble flooring and is the main corridor to both east (original part of the house) and west (addition) wings of the home. The home has beautiful details from the gracious 10 ft ceilings, to the faux marble hand painted mantels, mahogany trim, and timeless transom windows. Step through the parlor into the hallway past the original staircase and front door to the first floor guest room and study with beautiful built-in shelving. Just off the foyer is a true formal dining room with seating for 8+ and is an entertainer’s dream with built-in china cabinets and closet, plus pocket doors. The kitchen is equipped with a gas range, Corian countertops, eat-in bar, built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, butler’s pantry, and opens out to the sunny breakfast room with gorgeous bay windows. All cabinets were custom made of mahogany wood and have brass hardware. This includes all of the trim work and molding throughout the house. The den is warm and inviting with a gas fireplace, bay windows, and opens out to a screened in porch on the east and the breezeway back entrance on the west. Hardwood flooring can be found in the addition. The original wood flooring was stripped and refurbished during the renovation in 1989-90. The front door and its hardware are original and still in place. The 2nd staircase takes you to the large Master Bedroom suite with his and her bathrooms, closets and dressing area. This stunning suite has sound views, bay windows, and a gas fireplace. The second guest room is ensuite with a full bath and views of the sound. Before entering the original part of the house, you will pass through the office/bonus room, laundry room, and storage closet. In the upstairs of the original house, there are 2 additional guest rooms and a full bath. The entire third floor is attic space which includes 3 separate storage areas, one lined in cedar. Fireplaces in the den and master bedroom are not in use, but have gas logs. As this home is conveniently located in the quaint historic downtown district, it is zoned under the Village Business District, which allows for both residential and commercial uses. Just steps away from the charming downtown waterfront boardwalk, Marshes Lighthouse and Festival Park (w/in a block). Enjoy all that downtown Manteo has to offer like the Farmer’s Market (right across the street), art festivals, First Fridays, 4th of July festivities, and more. This home could be an ideal bed & breakfast, inn, wedding/event venue with many possibilities. This home is on the Manteo Preservation Trust. Some furnishings will convey. See bill of sale and exclusions list. The guest apartment over the 2 car garage has a separate entrance and would make a great AirBnB or vacation rental.
