The Cates-Cobb House In North Carolina

The Cates-Cobb House In North Carolina

House Crazy Sarah has had a slow-brewing fondness for American craftsman bungalows over her many years of house-peeping.

There’s just something about them that is so grounded and quaint.

The rich quality and level of craftsmanship…. can we just say it one more time: they don’t make houses today like they used to!

Such is the case with the Cates-Cobb House in Burlington, North Carolina.

Priced at $325,000, this beauty dates back to 1918 – the heyday of the craftsman home era.

The “Cates-Cobb Houseā€ in the West Davis / Fountain Place Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. But don’t expect a traditional interior.

Inside, the look is light and refreshed with modern whites and accents of grey.

Now, the purists amongst us may bemoan the fact that the original trim work is painted over, but the white-washing does have the effect of showcasing the gorgeous original wood floors.

$325,000 is not a bad price in these over-heated market times.

In fact, as this post goes to publication, this home is now listed as ‘under contract’.

Nevertheless, a craftsman bungalow is always a pleasure to view!
