MAK Home - 103 Kings Highway
103 Kings Highway, constructed in 1920, is one of the few two-story homes on the street. Wilburn’s design was ideal for Kings Highway's small, narrow lots.
With the exception of the side porch, which has been enclosed by prior owners, 103 Kings Highway’s exterior remains significantly intact. The exterior exhibits the home's original door and sidelight windows as well as its original double-hung windows with rolled glass.
The home's living and dining room still have original detail, including French doors, mantel and green-tiled fireplace, built-in bookcases and matching light fixtures. The kitchen now includes the enclosed back porch and has been expanded to provide for additional space and storage.
Changes to the home's interior were made in prior decades when the home was converted to a duplex. On the first floor, space from the original open stairway and butler's pantry were used for the addition of a 2nd full bathroom. Interestingly, the built-in china cabinet from the butler's pantry is still in use in this bathroom. On the 2nd floor, the home's sleeping porch has been converted into a kitchen and laundry room.
103 Kings Highway is currently a 3-bedroom, 2-bath single-family home with 2,000 square feet of living space.
