Property Description

The Historic Swasey Cottage and the detached ”Store” Cottage . This presents a one of a kind opportunity to invest in History. The entire parcel is located in the Original 100 Lots in the Historic District of Southport, NC. The cottage was built by Dr. Oliver Swasey who came to Southport after the Civil War to venture into mercantile, railroad and real estate activities. He may have built as many as 8 cottages throughout Southport and this is the only one still standing. Careful preservation has protected many of the original features including the two front doors, one leading into the living room and the other into the room that was his medical surgery plus the original ‘gables’ in the antebellum roofline. The Registered Historical Society plaque shows Circa 1889. The detached 1-bedroom cottage was a general store and it was moved from facing Brown St to where it now resides on Lord St. It sits next to the Swasey Cottage and it is being researched for a plaque from the Historical Society. Both cottages are now being used as successful Airbnbs. These properties are located within walking distance of restaurants, the marina, art galleries, parks, library, post office and everything that downtown Southport has to offer. It is a joy to sit on the porch on a rainy night and listen to the rain fall on the tin roof, wander past the historic live oak tree shaded streets, stop to admire the architecture or take a moment to sit in the swings on the riverfront to watch the sunset. The Swasey Cottage offers you nearby access to the Cape Fear River, the Atlantic Ocean, shopping and dining. Southport, NC, is a true treasure of the South ! It has received several national awards, including ”Happiest Seaside Towns in America” by Coastal Living Magazine & featured in movies such as ”Safe Haven” by Nicholas Sparks. The rich history of this property needs to be valued and protected. By Appt Only.
