About David L. Spence
My name is David Spence. I grew up in Charlotte and attended Wake Forest University Law School. I have lived and worked in Beaufort since March of 2000 and just bought this lovely home in July 2016. I am an Assistant District Attorney and have done that for 25 years. I love all water activities, playing music, building custom fishing rods and wood-turning on the lathe. I love Beaufort and want you to love it also!
David L. Spence purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why David L. Spence chose Beaufort
This house is one block from my work and I fell in love with it the first moment I walked in. It was completely renovated in 2008 and immaculately furnished. The back deck and yard will undergo a complete transformation this winter, making it an outside space that can be enjoyed 10 months of the year.

Great place in Historic Beaufort!
We could not have asked for more regarding this property and the owners. The place was so quaint and the owners were terrific. Everything was an ease, from check in to check out. You can tell the Spence’s love the area and want their guests to enjoy the town! We would stay again
Me my husband and our dog we had a pleasant stay. David is a respectful and warm person, the property and location are perfect . We hope back again
Couldn't have been happier. Great location and great owner. Would definitely stay here again.
Fabulous trip to Beaufort
The cottage was everything we hoped for. It had beautiful wood floors, high ceilings and lovely gardens. In addition, it was very clean and in walking distance to downtown Beaufort.
And I can’t thank David and Summer enough for making us feel so welcome. They were wonderful hosts and helped make our trip memorable. We are definitely planning a return trip!
Thanks guys! It was a true pleasure having y'all here! Our best to all and give Ralphie a big hug for us!
It was a step back in time in a charming historic home with high ceilings and beautiful wide plank floors; Southern hospitality abounds - a mix of the old and new (Keurig) was perfect. David was all one could hope for in a host whose priority was to ensure guests were treated special.
David is an excellent host and the apartment is very clean, comfortable and attractive. I will be back!
Visitors who want to take in the town and learn all the stories behind the homes and sites that comprise the Beaufort Historic District can easily do so via an in-depth tour. A number of historical tours are available through multiple vendors, which can include walking tours, bike tours, boat tours, and even themed expeditions like evening ghost tours. Stop by a local visitors’ center or take a stroll along the docks where multiple tour vendors set up temporary shop in the summer months to learn all about the options available.
Another good starting point for learning more about the ancient homes and sites within the Beaufort Historic District is the Beaufort Historical Association. Located within the primary Beaufort Historic Site building, this local organization can point new visitors on the right path when it comes to a self-guided exploration. In addition, visitors can take the opportunity to discover the unique structures within the Beaufort Historic Site itself, or can book a town-wide tour in an authentic English double decker bus.
There are also a number of resources for exploring that are available online. The Town of Beaufort’s Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is a seven member panel whose goal is to identify, protect, and help preserve the historic architectural resources - and the historical setting - of Beaufort. They have a nicely detailed flier which outlines the criteria for a home that meets the Historic District designation, which is found here, and the HFC is a solid resource for homeowners and new owners who want to see if their home meets the requirements for being named a historical addition to the town’s landscape.
But, for the most part, visitors who want to casually explore the Beaufort Historic District will simply want to step outside and go for a stroll. Start with Front Street, which hugs the borders of Taylor’s Creek, and then wind through the 12-block downtown area to discover a collection of architectural treasures. Visitors will want to keep an eye out for small signs and plaques that indicate a home or property of significance, as well as the NC Historical Markers which are found throughout this centuries-old community.
