MAK Home - 208 Kings Highway
208 Kings Highway was originally constructed in 1914 as a one-story Craftsman bungalow. Asian-inspired details noted by Wilburn in her pattern include the grouped porch columns and semi-circular ventilator in the front gable; however, the home’s front triple window and siding have been replaced.
Many of the charming features and hallmarks the bungalow remain, including oak floors with mahogany inlays, pocket doors, built-in bookcases and china cabinet, pocket doors and four fireplaces, some of which have original tile surrounds.
The home was expanded in the 1970s to provide for a family room off the back of the first floor. In addition, the attic was renovated to provide additional bedrooms and a bathroom.
208 Kings Highway is currently a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home with approximately 2,800 square feet of living space.
