Expansive home associated with the "education governor" Charles B. Aycock. Located in downtown Goldsboro, the house features handsome Colonial Revival elements typical of the turn of the 20th century. Details include beveled glass, bay windows, paneled wainscot, impressive stair, and gracious full-width front porch. Currently midway through its restoration, the home is an excellent blank canvas with beautiful historic features, and will be a grand residence once rehabilitation has been completed.
Since it is located in the Goldsboro Historic District; the Charles B. Aycock House is eligible for historic preservation tax credits.
The Charles B. Aycock House requires a complete rehabilitation including new electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems along with kitchen and baths. Much of the interior walls and wood work have been removed in preparation for the restoration.
The property includes Aycock's former Law Office, with some restoration work complete. Additional work is needed including finishing the foundation.
The lively town of Goldsboro (pop. 39,000), the seat of Wayne County, is the home of the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. It is located in eastern North Carolina, 20 minutes from I-40 and I-95, one hour from Raleigh, and within easy access of North Carolina beaches.
