Property History
Around 1910, William Edward Perry started construction on his new house with help from his brothers N.M. and Hugh Perry on land that had been in their family since the 1830s. Sited near the ruins of the former Overseer’s House, the Perry House is to the west and within view of the Massenburg Plantation house, also known as “Woodleaf.”

Though a simple bungalow in appearance, the Perry House is a thoughtfully constructed residence that is more Classical than Craftsman with broad cornice, pilaster-like cornerboards and porch supports, gable returns, and especially the transom and sidelights surrounding the main entrance. Part timber-frame and part balloon-frame, this sturdy house rests on a cut-stone foundation. The freshly painted, historic clapboard siding is punctuated by large fashionably Craftsman 9-over-1 doublehung sash windows. The wide porch with a wooded view has plenty of room for rockers. The house is topped by a beautiful pressed-metal shingle roof.

The front doors lead into the entrance hall/foyer. Much of the first floor interior features stunning pressed metal ceilings – a different one in every room. Pocket doors divide the entry hall from the stair hall. The front parlors and northwest room include fireplaces with attractive mantels. The main staircase, second floor hall and doors feature natural wood finishes providing a striking and attractive contrast to first floor formal rooms.

A large solar farm is being developed in the field to the north. As the house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, it will be buffered from view by rows of plantings which should screen the solar farm from view of the Perry House property within a couple of years.
 
Property Description
Move-in ready, beautifully restored 1910’s farmhouse on 3.25 acres! Spacious rooms, gorgeous decorative metal ceilings, pocket doors, beautiful woodwork throughout. Updated systems and fresh paint.

Built c.1910 by descendants of the nearby Woodleaf Plantation, the Perry House is a lovely example of a rural bungalow-style farmhouse. The wide porch with a wooded view has plenty of room for rockers. The spacious interior features stunning pressed metal ceilings in several rooms, three fireplaces with attractive mantels, and wood floors throughout. The main staircase, second floor hall and doors feature natural wood finishes providing a striking and attractive contrast to the more formal rooms. With 3 bedrooms, two baths, plenty of closets, kitchen appliances, a roomy mudroom/laundry, and a c.1930 garage all set on 3.25 acres, this is an attractive move-in ready property.
 
Additional Notes
The Town of Louisburg is a charming, small town in the heart of the North Carolina Piedmont. With only a 45-minute drive to Raleigh, 40-minute drive to Durham, and 50-minute drive to Chapel Hill, Louisburg has access to some of the best healthcare, academic, cultural, and entertainment resources in North Carolina and the east coast of the United States. From the beautiful Main Street corridor, full of historic churches and oak-lined sidewalks, to the nations oldest private two-year college, Louisburg College, Louisburg is the quintessential small town America. With the multitude of municipal services enjoyed by citizens to the beauty of two river front parks, Louisburg offers many amenities to those wishing to enjoy the relaxed character of the small town while having short access to major city resources.
