Rehabilitation Tax Credits Used to Restore Unusual Gothic Revival-Style House in Beaufort

By John Wood

211 Turner Street, after rehabilitation

Beaufort's most exuberant example of a Gothic Revival-style residence was recently restored using the state and federal rehabilitation tax credits. When the nondescript historic house at 211 Turner St. was purchased, the owners did not realize the architectural gem that was hidden beneath layers of synthetic siding. A series of architectural investigations by HPO Restoration Specialist John Wood revealed the building's original configuration and finishes. The forensic analysis of the building enabled the owners to restore missing features, including the first floor of a central projecting bay and A. J. Downing-inspired window hoods.

Guestbook comments from the owner

211-B Turner St, Beaufort, NC, 28516, United States (602126)



We loved this home so much the first time, we decided to come back and stay in the cottage which is in the back behind the house. Since it was just my husband and I, it was perfect! This cottage was stunning. It has a very large bedroom (only 1), a very nice spa like bathroom, a beautifully designed kitchen with granite counters and beautiful fixtures. The living room is just off the kitchen with wonderful newer furniture and even a wall mounted “smart” TV. The cottage had newly tiled floors from front to back and it was simply beautiful! I loved staying in the house the first time we were there, but I think the cottage was perfect for my husband and I! As always the owners were just wonderful! Will be staying again, VERY SOON!

We all enjoyed our stay at this restored home in the heart of Beaufort. It was so nice to be in walking distance to the shops and restaurants. The homemade bread was such a nice touch and absolutely delicious. Would definitely choose to stay here again!

great location & owner was very nice but needs to be aired out

  • 3 of 5

the location is fantastic & the owner was very accommodating but the home is really old & has decades of smells that can not be taken care of by leaving the doors open..... the downstairs kitchen/living room is very dark & musty & a lot of the windows don't open

Owner's Response: Hi Susan I’m sorry that you were disappointed in the Admiral’s House. This is an 1883 Gothic Revival architecture that is unique to this area with the original floors and original windows. All the curtains in the house can be adjusted to let more light in. This is the first time that anyone has mentioned the “musty” smell. The house is thoroughly cleaned before and after each guest. Perhaps an historic house wasn’t the best location for your stay. I hope that you will give our lovely town of Beaufort, NC another chance. There are many housing options available to choose from. Regards Patti & Nelson

A perfect home in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

A great home in the best location in Beaufort. How wonderful to be welcomed with homemade bread and all the comforts of home. Front porch rockers and swing provided pleasant spot for drinks and conversation. Close to coffee and wine shop, antique shops, and waterfront. We could walk to several restaurants. We hope to return.
