Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: The ultimate in recycling and repurposing a space! When Gray moved his office home in order to simplify and downsize, Gray and Heather decided to 'repurpose' the office into an apartment, added a shower and a few 'tweaks' in the floor plan to make a comfortable, relaxing, eco-friendly space for the weekend or corporate traveler. We also own Windy Pointe on vrbo and enjoy travel, sailing and spending time with family and friends. We live in Salisbury.

Why the Owner Chose Salisbury, NC, USA:
We love old cities and Salisbury is one of the best. Comfortable space to relax or celebrate while in town for reunions, weddings, site seeing, or business- a great alternative to a hotel. Competitively priced with a partial kitchen for breakfast or microwave meals.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love to walk to all the restaurants, shops, museums and theaters in the downtown district. Use public transit to visit the Spencer Shops & Transportation museum. Spend a weekend not having to get in your car, walk to dinner & a play. Take a trolley tour around town or the ghost walk!
