The modest-sized side-hall plan Traylor-Peacock House was built in 1895 and has three bedrooms and two baths. The property includes an adjacent lot bringing the total land to 0.24 acre.

The inviting front porch expands the width of the house with original posts and sawn decorative balustrade. The multi-gabled roof features decorative shingle work. Interior features include a single-run original stairway with turned balustrade, original mantels, and wood floors.

The Traylor-Peacock House must be lifted from its foundation for repairs and likely needs sill replacement/repair as well. The house requires a complete rehabilitation including all new systems, wiring, HVAC, plumbing, new roof with significant repairs, flooring repair and new kitchen and baths. It has been confirmed that the property contains lead paint. The Traylor-Peacock House is a contributing structure in the Goldsboro historic district.
