Ivey Ellington House

Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 15 November 2018 in Architecture and Portfolio.

This house was built in downtown Cary, NC in about 1870. It has stood on its original location on Chatham St. since it was built. The historic house is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the few surviving examples of the Gothic Revival style in Wake County and the country. There are proposals under consideration to move it perhaps a few feet or around the block to make way for a 75,000 sq ft (6,900 sq m) mixed use office/condo. Yay, progress.

Nice story to this old house. Well kept. Inviting walkway and entrance. And about moving the house, like the Beetles used to sing, "Let it Be!"

A nice symmetrical view that fills the frame perfectly! Eye-catching processing on the ground and steps.

A great example that we should leave alone. A fine straight on picture.
