Property History
The Louise Allen House is a lovely, large home built in the 1840s in the Greek Revival style and later refashioned in the Colonial Revival style, which was highly popular in the early 1900s. When the house was redesigned in the 1920s, a brick veneer was applied and additions were made including a warm, south-facing enclosed sunroom. The interior of the home retains several elements of the 19th century, including some elegant neoclassical mantles by noted Warrenton builder Jacob Holt and prominent Greek Revival woodwork. The interior also includes a graceful double staircase with delicate turned balusters, which was added in the 1920s.

Situated on a beautiful in-town lot nearly 1½ acres in size, the property is shaded by mature trees and was noted for its lovely blueberry and fig bushes. The property also includes the Smiley Cottage, a 1930s Craftsman-style guest house, sized at approximately 1200 square feet.

The Louise Allen House will require a complete rehabilitation including reconstruction of the 1920s-era front porch (archival photo available), all new mechanical systems, structural repair (or rebuilding) of the rear kitchen area, miscellaneous interior and exterior cosmetic repairs, and a new kitchen and baths. The cottage will also need cosmetic repairs, updated systems, kitchen, and bath(s).

Located in the Warrenton National Register Historic District, the Louise Allen House and Smiley Cottage are eligible for preservation tax credits.

 
Property Description
Large gracious home with important early woodwork situated on over an acre that includes a Craftsman-era guest house. Located in lovely Warrenton, noted for its collection of Antebellum buildings. Near Kerr Lake and Lake Gaston.

 
Additional Notes
Located near Kerr Lake and only an hour from Raleigh, Warren County is admired for its picturesque scenery and charming character that is being rediscovered and restored. Formed in 1779, Warren County is located along Interstate 85 and is known as a “gateway of the Carolinas.” Both Warren County and Warrenton, its county seat, retain an impressive collection of intact plantation houses and a variety of architecture harkening to its heyday as a center of agricultural enterprise, academies, home to leading political figures, and sulfur springs resorts that drew famous names to the area first by wagon then by train. Dozens of properties are listed in the National Register of Historic Places including much of historic Warrenton. Only one hour to Research Triangle Park region and 1.5 hours to Richmond, VA.
