The Sommers & Etta Spencer House: 255 Lighthouse Rd, $395,000 MLS# 111958
This 4 bedroom and 3 bath home was originally built in 1880. In 2008, the home was purchased by a gentleman and his wife who completed a historic preservation rehabilitation, finishing in 2016. These renovations met the standards of The Department of The Interior and were consistent with the historic character of the property. The structure was raised to flood insurance certification standards and the deck was extended around the back of the house adding an outdoor shower, the siding is original; original banisters and railings are still in place; original bead board was sanded and painted; wood floors were sanded and finished; these are the original windows, doors and hardware; electrical and plumbing was re-done according to code. The upstairs is heated and cooled by a heat pump with duct work in the eaves. The downstairs is heated and cooled by three mini split systems. A wired outbuilding, could be used as a workshop. The wrap around porch on the house is shaded by the huge live oaks and cypress, finishing out the picture of old Ocracoke.
