Property description

The Admiral's House is a beautifully restored historic home in quaint downtown Beaufort. Originally built in circa 1883, the house underwent a complete restoration under supervision of the NC Historic Preservation Office, which was finished in June 2014.

The house resides in the heart of the Beaufort Historic District - which is listed on the US Park Service - National Register of Historic Places. There is plenty of off street parking for at least 5 vehicles in the parking lot behind the house. Just turn right on to the gravel driveway after you pass the house. Once you park your car, you may not need it anymore, as The Admiral's House is conveniently located, a short walk to anywhere in the Beaufort Historic district. It is 1 1/2 blocks to the waterfront, boardwalk and Taylor's Creek. One block to Beaufort Historic grounds. Easy walk to bars, restaurants, shops and new ferry service to beaches and Cape Lookout Lighthouse.

Bed linens are provided for each room as well as 2 sets of towels and a blanket. Extra towels are in the closet. Two bedrooms on the first floor and three bedrooms on the second floor. The 'trunk room' has built in seating that could handle two extra people if needed.

Rehabilitation Tax Credits Used to Restore Unusual Gothic Revival-Style House in Beaufort

By John Wood

Beaufort's most exuberant example of a Gothic Revival-style residence was recently restored using the state and federal rehabilitation tax credits. When the nondescript historic house at 211 Turner St. was purchased, the owners did not realize the architectural gem that was hidden beneath layers of synthetic siding. A series of architectural investigations by HPO Restoration Specialist John Wood revealed the building's original configuration and finishes. The forensic analysis of the building enabled the owners to restore missing features, including the first floor of a central projecting bay and A. J. Downing-inspired window hoods. To read the full story, follow this link.
