Property Description

Own a piece of history! This magnificent home started as a small cabin dating back to 1781. Over the years, additions were made and adornments were added to make the stately home that stands today. Overlooking the Old Catawba River, this 5 bedroom/3 bath home would be perfect for a growing family or as a bed and breakfast. Enjoy afternoon breezes on the front porch while listening to the waters of the river or on either the upper or lower back decks surrounding the brick patio complete with outdoor fireplace. The upper deck also leads to an additional bonus room. Take the newly built stairway down to bank of the Old Catawba River. Currently operating as The Historic Bridgewater Inn, the property also included two "garage studios" with long term rentals. You could live in the main home and cover your monthly bills with the rental income! Parcel containing cottage and chapel may also be included for additional consideration.
