You’ve found it! A spectacular piece of living history in the heart of Swansboro awaits. The Peter Ringware House, circa 1778, is a rare find, offering four floors of beautiful finished living space as well as a large outbuilding ready for conversion to…an office? In-law suite? Studio? Vacation rental? Historic District zoning (B-2HDO) offers flexibility so you can decide. The gracious main level’s central hall opens to a large living room with original fireplace to the right, two parlors with fireplaces to the left, and a formal dining room and large eat-in kitchen overlooking the big fenced back yard. The second level houses two bedrooms and a lovely family room with another fabulous fireplace. The finished attic is currently used as a gym and another sleeping quarter (ceilings just under 7′). Down a circular stairwell from the main level is a walk out basement with a huge stone fireplace, more flex space, a full bath, and another sleeping quarter. (ceilings just under 7′). This unforgettable home has been tastefully updated, but historic charm has been lovingly preserved including five original ornamental fireplaces, 6′ – 12” plank heart pine floors, stunning 1778 entry doors, new period correct windows, and a new metal roof. The heavy lifting is complete; new geothermal heating and cooling, updated baths, two levels of rebuilt porch, new roof, new fencing, fresh paint inside and out, and more. Hurry, this is truly one of a kind. 209 Main Street
