If you love historic homes but don’t want the hassle of renovating one, this is the home for you! This wonderful historic home is the oldest building in Greensboro used as a residence.
This Lake Daniel historic home has been featured in many newspaper articles and two books: Greensboro An Architectural Record, by Marvin A. Brown, and Greensboro Volume II Neighborhoods by Gayle Hicks Fripp. Built in 1820 by Rev. William Paisley, it was moved to its current location at 409 Hillcrest Drive around 1930 because its original location at West Market Street was needed to construct the U.S. Post Office and Federal Building. Rev. Paisley is remembered for organizing Greensboro’s first church, back when Greensboro was barely a dot on the map with a total population of about 20 families.
Even without its historical pedigree, this home is fabulous and been renovated with top-of-the-line modern amenities.

The front porch is made for relaxing in a rocking chair. The detached 2-car garage has a spectacular bonus room. The deck in the backyard offers views of the mature trees and brick walkway. There is even a basement with a wood stove, which is perfect for a den or office. Details throughout the home include era doors and knobs and vintage-looking tile.
