The historic home is 137 years old and has been an event space for the last 26 years. It’s listed at $1.8M.

History: The Queen Anne-style home was built in 1884 for the Crow family, originally from Waxhaw. Three generations of Crows lived in the house, and threw many parties there.

Venue: Cofield and Shirley Hilburn bought the house in 1995 to turn it into an events venue named the Victorian Crow’s Nest. It has an industrial kitchen, 4,500-square-foot banquet hall, covered ceremony space and six acres of land.

  • The couple has been operating at reduced capacity the last 4-5 years, but the community demand for an events space is still there. They’ve had to turn down events in recent years.
  • If the new owners decide to continue operating the venue, Cofield and Shirley will help with the transition.

The exact address is 1710 W. Franklin St. A 12,078 square feet, it has 4 beds and 5 full and 2 half baths.

Design: The asymmetrical design, wrap-around porch, heavy moldings and detailed millwork are all typical of Queen Anne-style architecture.

Layout: The original house is used as part of the venue currently, and there’s a newer residential space the owners live in.

  • Listing agent Andria Sarvey met with an architect and has plans drawn if the new owners would like to convert the event spaces into residential space or a bed and breakfast.
