|The one-and-a-half-story Martin-Bazemore House is the oldest home in the storied Woodville Rural Historic District. The earliest section of the main block seems to date to the mid-18th century.
Vacant since the 1970s, the house retains many 18th–19th-century details: original beaded siding, double-shouldered chimney in random common bond, molded cornice on porch, heart-pine flooring, flat-paneled wainscot, paneled doors, three-part molded surrounds and four nine-over-six windows.
Saved by Historic Woodville Inc., the front portion of the house has been faithfully restored, the exterior has been completed, minor landscaping added, new electrical service and half-bath are in place. The remaining house, including ca. 1820 kitchen ell, must be rehabilitated. Possible owner-financing available.
Quiet rural setting but an easy commute to Greenville and East Carolina University.
The historic community of Woodville (Lewiston-Woodville) enjoys a rural location and is situated within easy driving distance of several of Northeastern North Carolina's larger cities. Rocky Mount, Tarboro, and Greenville — home of East Carolina University — are within 50 miles, and the popular beaches of NC’s Outer Banks are within a 1.5 hour drive.
