THE FRANCIS LAW FIRM, PLLC HAS MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION
Wednesday, September 27, 2017
In June 2017, The Francis Law Firm, PLLC moved its offices to the Shepherd-Francis House. The ShepherdFrancis House is located in downtown Raleigh at 215 East North Street in the Blount Street and Oakwood neighborhoods. Attorneys Charles and Marvea Francis purchased the historic property from the State of North Carolina in the fall of 2016. Matthew Konar Architect, PLLC and Richard Hall Designs, PLLC designed an office space that maintained the integrity of the Neoclassical Revival style two-story house. In October 2016, Greg Paul Builders, Inc. started a renovation and restoration process that spanned 10 months. Interestingly, two separate structures, a main residential house in the front and a detached kitchen in the rear, were exposed during the process. The exposed siding in the house’s interior delineating the kitchen and main house was left as part of the interior space. We look forward to showing you our new office on your next visit.
In September 2017, the restoration earned the 2017Anthemion Award from Capital Area Preservation, Inc. in recognition of outstanding dedication and commitment to excellence in historic preservation in Wake County, North Carolina.
In December 2017, the building will be on display as part of the Annual Historic Oakwood 2017 Candlelight Tour for the holiday season. Check for ticket information at The Society For The Preservation of Historic Oakwood.
