The third bedroom could be used as a mother-in-law or guest suite and has new casement windows and a vaulted ceiling.

There are fireplaces with ventless gas logs in the second bedroom and dining room. Heated and cooled with a Unico high-velocity, mini-duct system, this home has a tankless Rennai water heater and a 50-year metal roof.

Cuddle up with your favorite book on the private screen porch or watch the world go by from the rocking-chair front porch. A wonderful backyard overlooks a rambling seasonal stream that has a foot-bridge which allows you to enjoy the landscaping.

Glencoe Mill Village is a vibrant community of restored historic properties in a picturesque riverfront setting. According to the National Parks Service, Glencoe is a “nationally significant site representative of a Southern textile mill village and its role in the industrialization of the American South.” Parts of the property have been returned to parkland, and the mill complex is undergoing renovations.

Glencoe was one of numerous textile mills built in the nineteenth century in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. Textile pioneer James H. Holt (1833-1897) built Glencoe in the 1880s on a gentle stretch of the Haw River. When the mill ceased operating in the 1950s, its mill buildings and village homes stood abandoned.

Preservation North Carolina acquired Glencoe in the 1990s and began developing the property and selling the homes.

Today, Glencoe Mill Village is a vibrant community of beautifully renovated and landscaped homes. The village boasts scenic walking and kayaking trails along the Haw River and features a Textile Heritage Museum, artists’ studios, and offices for several non-profit organizations.
