A rare opportunity to own a piece of history! The William B. Meares House served as a hospital for Union troops during the Civil War. The handsome brick 3 story in the Greek Revival style, was originally constructed in 1826 and moved to its present location on a large lot overlooking the Cape Fear River in 1887. A hundred years later, when the owner converted the house into 6 apartments, it was his intention to return it to single family at a later date. That opportunity can now be yours! Elements of its original grandeur are evident in the 12 foot ceilings with foliated medallions, walnut center staircase and marble mantels. The 522 sf out building, which is the 7th apartment, could provide rental income if the house was converted back to single family.
