By now, you've all seen the incredible A-listers are snapping up. Heck, even Jay Z and Beyonce were rumored to be moving into one. But what you've likely never seen is a historic courthouse turned luxurious apartment complex... until now.
Located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Forsyth County Courthouse is a designated historic landmark. Taking up an entire city block, the three-story structure combines individual buildings – a Romanesque Revival-style courthouse built in 1896 and a Beaux Arts-inspired courthouse completed in 1926. The two buildings were connected in 1960, the last time the property was renovated.
Now, the Forsyth County Courthouse is getting a new lease on life as a stylish housing complex. Called , the historic building boasts 58 modern apartment units. Highlights include stainless steel appliances, hardwood and stained concrete floors, washer/dryers in every unit, a 24-hour in-building fitness center, and a resident lounge with a kitchen and bar.
Rest assured, the courthouse's past was not erased entirely. Original Beaux Arts and Romanesque Revival details were kept throughout the building's common spaces, and the judge's bench is still a fixture in the lounge.
With a mix of studio and one- to three-bedroom apartments starting at just $945 per month, 50 West Fourth is an affordable way to become part of American history.
