Listing Description


Mr. Albert's House - Valdese, NC For Sale

This over-7300 square-feet Georgian Revival style home sitting on a knoll in historic Valdese makes a lasting impression on visitors.  As you drive up the curved driveway lined with stone walls and walk into the magnificent foyer you begin to realize how much this historical home has to offer.  Occupied strictly as a private residence to this point, this unique propery has all the characteristics to become a high-end B&B in a historic town that has no B&B or other accomodations.

The main level consists of a large formal living room, elegant dining room, well-planned kitchen, powder room and a guest suite with 'en suite' full bath.  There are five additional bedrooms on the second floor - master suite with full bath and two sets of two bedrooms sharing a Jack & Jill full bath.  A mid-level suite includes a BR, sitting room and full bath.  All bathrooms still have original tile and color-matched fixtures. The third-floor runs the length of the house and is finished with an attic fan, flooring, walk up staircase and a huge amount of storage. The walk-out basement level has a large family room with wood-burning fireplace, a billiards room, bar, its own wine cellar/tasting room, workout room with sauna, full bathroom and utility room. Special features include laundry chute, elevator from basement to second and third levels, unique plaster moldings throughout the house. Every key hole has original covers rarely seen today. The grounds are pristine and include specimen trees reminiscent of Olmsted’s plantings as well as two formal English boxwood gardens.

This home was occupied by the original owners until 1999; purchased by 3rd owners in 2005 who undertook the restoration process that has returned this house to an Elegant English-style Georgian Manor with modern amenities.
