About This Old House

SOLDHistoric 1801 Two-Story Colonial Manor updated home is stunning and offers a true feel of 19th century living. The charm begins with an amazing wide walkway flanked by 150 year old Magnolias leading to a raised railed porch and gracious entry. The stately home rests on a Brick and Concrete foundation that is over 7′ high, with 2 fireplaces remaining in the lower level. The large parlor offers wonderful lighting with a large 3 lite entry door and additional windows. Also, visible in the parlor is the beautiful stairwell and two oval, ornate, stained glass windows. Off the massive parlor is the Formal dining room with two large windows and mirrored fireplace. Through the panel swing door, a very large country kitchen complete with abundant cabinets, corner porcelain sink, pantry and nice windows that allow perfect lighting. The Hallway off the kitchen has built-ins and a tile half bath and good size laundry room with tons of storage and shelving. This Hallway also leads to a fine wood paneled den with fireplace and many built-ins. Both the kitchen and den lead out to an extraordinary screened in porch that is breathtaking, overlooking brick ways, old trees, farmland and yes a cabinet and sink for preparing vegetables or cleaning fish. The upper level has a gigantic open sitting area with two large windows and original wide heart pine flooring. There are three large bedrooms and a lovely full tile bath. Solid and beautiful heart pine flooring are throughout the home and there are over $4000 worth of plantation shutters. Most appealing to the home are three tall chimneys. The very private park-like setting has a variety of mature trees. The home has lots of history being that it was the home of “Sonny Boy Joyner”, a well-respected political figure in North Carolina and was responsible for having Weldon named as the Rock Fish Capital of the world. The “Sonny Boy Joyner” home has received Governors and other North Carolina Politicians to retreat at the invitation of the Joyner’s.
