Information

Fairfield, North Carolina in Hyde County was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 for being the home of properties such as this beautifully well maintained home built in 1872. Fresh exterior paint over the cypress lap siding on the Murray home highlights the Carpenter Gothic Ornamentation which contributed to the locals giving it the nickname "Gingerbread Home." A metal Gable roof accentuates the deep v-groove roofline framing the windows that flood natural light into the two upstairs bedrooms and reading niche at the top of the stairs. First floor has a freshly painted bedroom, a recently remodeled bathroom in the hall, a welcoming Foyer and a Parlor with 12' ceilings, beautiful woodwork and an elegantly framed brick fireplace. The dining room off the Foyer has 10' ceiling with beams accents and it's own brick fireplace Throughout home, ceilings range from 9-12 feet tall and the floors have varying width wood plank floors.

The kitchen is said to have be added in the 1960's and has reclaimed barnwood plank flooring, exposed ceiling beams, cooking grill built into the bricks, gas cooktop and built-in oven. A spacious screened in porch peers over neighboring farmland. The laundry room along with washer and dryer, has lots of additional storage. Moving into the library, you will find copious bookshelves, a cast iron, wood burning stove and plenty of space for entertaining.

The first floor En-Suite, off of the library, hosts a graceful clawfoot, cast iron soaking tub and traditional plumbing fixtures. Many areas of the home are heated by either baseboard electric heat or a propane burning wall mount heater. If you were looking for a home rich in history, character and charm from the 19th Century, you have found it...topped off with five mature pecan trees providing dappled shade on the front porch. Enjoy the nearby rich waters of Lake Mattamuskeet, the largest natural lake in North Carolina, famous for large blue crabs, bald cypress trees, Tundra swans, diving ducks, and puddle ducks.

Or enjoy the nearby Swanquarter National Wildlife Refuge where thousands of migratory waterfowl pass through during the winter, including American black duck, bufflehead, and northern pintail. American alligators, bald eagles, black bear, and secretive marsh birds also reside in the refuge around the Pamlico Sound. As Hyde County is home to some of the most prime waterfowl, bear and deer hunting in the country, there are many opportunities for public and private hunting tours. Whether you hunt, bird watch, fish, swim, paddle board, boat, kayak or just enjoy sitting on your front porch watching flowers bloom and stars shine, Fairfield calls for you.
