The Hicks-Broom House is a late 19th century home with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. A center hall plan with a metal-clad roof, the house is situated on a deep spacious lot. The inviting front porch expands the width of the house and has original posts and sawn decorative balustrade.

The interior of the house has some original features including wood floors. The house requires a complete rehabilitation including significant roof and exterior wall repairs, all new systems, wiring, HVAC, plumbing and kitchen and baths. The house is located in the Goldsboro historic district and is eligible for historic preservation tax credits.
