Built in 1898, this flamboyant 1.5-story Queen Anne house was designed by nationally known architect George Barber. The design is notable for its unusual polygonal tower, brackets, wood shingles and sawn and turned decoration.
The home is asymmetrical in design, with corner turret, whimsical tower, wings and decorative emblishments. The exterior has clapboard and shingle cladding. Features include two interior mansory chimneys and two smaller chimneys in the rear ell. The windows are of varying widths and are double-hung, with nine upper panes and one lower.
Inside, the home's original mantels, stair banister and newel posts remain. Unpainted pine woodwork upstairs is beautifully molded and in good condition.
The home is in the Broad Kenan Historic District and is being sold with covenants to protect its historic architectural elements. Eligible for historic rehabilitation tax credits.
