The plum-colored Queen Anne-style cottage is named The Reverend George H. Detwiler House. It’s listed for $750K.
History: The house was built in 1903 for Reverend George H. Detwiler, a well-known minister who served at what is now called First United Methodist Church on North Tryon. He bought the land for a whopping $850, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission.
The exact address is 801 Sunnyside Ave. At 2,524 square feet, it has 3 beds and 3 baths.
Original architecture: The main floor is true to the original foot print, and there are many old-school features like stained glass windows, thick moldings, hearty wood doors and other ornate details.
- I love the way the bright white paint and modern updates make the space feel open and fresh while also letting the original beauty shine through. That juxtaposition won me over, big time.
Highlights: Expansive front porch, old-school architectural details, 5 fireplaces, landscaped backyard with paver patio, unheated detached shed (could be home gym/flex space), built-ins, heigh ceilings, modern upgrades.
