1930s Spanish Colonial Revival home with a Hacienda form

1604 Statesville Blvd, Salisbury, NC 28144, USA


The Temple house is a beautiful circa 1930’s stucco Spanish Colonial Revival home in the hacienda style located on 1.3 acres in city limits of historic Salisbury, NC.  The exceptional landscaping reflects the talents of the builder/designer who was a noted North Carolina landscape architect.  The house is a u-shape design with a central terrazzo and grass courtyard with six French doors that lead from the private courtyard to the central living spaces as well as individual bedrooms. The courtyard area opens to a garden space that reflects the courtyard with reclaimed paving stone walkways.  A Koi pond that is backed by a double arch stucco wall creates a focal point for this private oasis.

The grounds are divided into private unique garden spaces, but there are also two large open grassed areas that would accommodate a pool complex or a large party or recreation area.

The home has a separate two-story garage building with a second-floor apartment/man-cave/she-shed/ studio.  The area was originally used as Mr. Temple’s office/studio. The second floor is 900 sq. feet. A large deck and stairs were added to the back of the garage in 2017 to enhance accessibility.

The last restorations of the electrical system and the clay tile roof were done in 1994, however, the property has been well maintained.  Wooden window repair and exterior painting and stucco repair were completed in 2019. Interior surfaces are in excellent condition. The clay tile roof needs maintenance, but several squares of matching barrel tiles, which are the primary cost of repairs for this roof, are include in the price of the home.

The Temple House is one of the few individually listed historic properties in Salisbury, NC.  Because of this recognition, the property receives a 50% tax credit yearly. Additional tax credits are available from the state of NC for restoration projects.  There are no restrictive covenants on the interior of the home.

Though we think it is perfect as it is, the new owner can make interior changes to suit their lifestyle. The house is currently on the NC study list for National  Register of Historic Places recognition.  The required paperwork needs to be completed and submitted.

We are happy to speak with anyone about the property. However, please do not request a showing if you are not seriously considering this property.  Serious buyers must be prepared to spend some money on roof repairs or be willing to put in some serious sweat equity.

We look forward to hearing from folks who will love living in and caring for this beautiful historic house.
