The Franklin Smith Jr. House c. 1929

Enjoying a deep set-back from Fulton Street, this circa 1929 2-story Spanish Mission stucco and brick home’s most recognizable design feature is the handsome Spanish tile roof and arcaded porte-cochere.

A trio of French doors adorns the front façade with an array of rounded arched transoms. The second story features large casement windows with the center boasting a small iron balcony rail. The Spanish Mission Style was particularly popular in Salisbury pre-Depression, perhaps influenced in part by the Salisbury Southern Passenger Depot (now known as the Historic Salisbury Depot) designed by the prominent architect Frank P. Milburn.

An earlier renovation enclosed the patio to create a roomy den with two extra-large windows and a large glass door. The master BR features a tray ceiling with access to the two flat roofs, and the second bedroom has three arched doors leading to a beautiful small balcony. The present owner has freshly repainted all rooms and installed period-correct custom shutters throughout.

The interior echoes the arched elements seen at the front of the home with beautiful arched transoms, moldings, and door trim throughout. The home features original wood flooring and windows and a handsome brick fireplace.
