About 110 Old Hertford Rd

This stunning Queen Anne home was built by William Speight, owner of the Edenton Brick Works, for his own happy family that included his bride and nine children. Situated on a corner lot with over 5 acres of land, she's a commanding beauty at the entrance of downtown's Edenton’s east side. The Queen Anne style was the height of architectural fashion when the house was built, supposedly designed by an architect from Norfolk, VA. A spacious porch wraps around three sides of the home, highlighted by a corner pavilion. A handsome entrance leads to the spacious interior, which interestingly, was originally designed without hallways and closets. The foyer’s notable parquet floor is original, as are molded baseboards, chair rails, picture and crown moldings, and elaborate mantels throughout.

Currently, one bedroom suite is on the first floor. 7 additional bedrooms and 6 bathrooms – all beautifully updated and appointed - are on the second and third floors. One bedroom suite is accessed via a private rear stair, used now as owners’ quarters. The kitchen is phenomenal, truly a professional chef’s delight! The interior spaces are ample, and easily repurposed to meet a variety of needs.

Three original outbuildings remain, all ca. 1902 and the only brick outbuildings in Chowan County. The largest is the county’s finest remaining Cotton Gin, which has incredible potential. Additionally, there is a smokehouse and another similar building that’s original purpose is unknown. An old Edenton Cotton Mill Cottage was relocated on the grounds. Though not currently livable, there is obvious potential as a guest house, owners’ quarters or as an income producing property.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, the property is currently operated as a boutique Bed & Breakfast and exquisite event venue – though it’s equally suitable for an elegant private family home. The property exudes beauty from the gracious porch to every corner of the interior and sweeping grounds beyond. The potential of this incredible property is limited only by your imagination!
