Richard Alexander, an experienced builder and remodeler of historic spaces, says that the Coleman House was very well constructed and, equally important, has not been significantly altered from its original classic floor plan.
“The basic structure is in very good condition, and its period features are virtually untouched,” he says.
“This extraordinary house is a rare find for people who understand the value of restoring older homes.
“It would be great to work with an owner and rehabilitate these amazing spaces with exciting design ideas like Katherine has for the kitchen and master suite.
“We can preserve the historical integrity of this incredible house, while reapportioning some space – to create a full-size master bath, for example – to better accommodate today’s lifestyles.
“This house has huge potential to be one of Winston-Salem's finest turn-of-the-century homes.”
