The Lydia and James Cartland House, “Beechwood”
Blog post

  • $359,900 (originally listed at $369,000)
  • 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3,142 square feet
  • Price/square foot: $115
  • Built in 1905
  • Listed July 15, 2019
  • Last sale: $162,000, June 2001
  • Neighborhood: Lindley Park
  • Note: The house was built across the street and moved to its present location in the early 1920s.
    • “The two-story frame house is typical of Greensboro residences of the first decade of the twentieth century. Simply detailed, the Late Victorian form is characterized by a hipped roofline and a projecting hipped wing. This wing, with exterior access, might have served as an office. Decorative features are staid, including a deep cornice with boxed eaves, nine over nine windows, and a half-width front porch. Interior details curiously hint at an early construction date, such as capped door and window trim, a square stair newel post, and six-panel doors. The house is a special footnote for the neighborhood and represents the earliest history of Lindley Park.” — Benjamin Briggs, Preservation Greensboro
