Property Description
The McClenahan House is an early-19th century house with Federal period woodwork in the inviting town of Pittsboro. The charming cottage is a rare survivor of Pittsboro's earliest years.

The house was originally one room with a loft that was sized to satisfy the town's requirements for a structure, that being at least "twenty feet long, sixteen feet wide and ten foot pitch." The house was enlarged to its present four rooms with a central hall on the first floor and two rooms upstairs. Evidence of the addition and changes made to the house include the disruption of the flooring, differing grade level between the front and back rooms, varying types of windows at different levels, multiple molding styles, and the addition of dormer windows.

Many popular stylistic features common in Pittsboro are incorporated in the house including paneled mantels, a central stair hall, and flush board wainscoting, walls and ceilings. The one-story one-bay wide front entry porch features an attractive rounded soffit and floral motif door hardware. The house has two exterior end chimneys and two modern dormers that were added to the rear of the house, probably the same time as the front porch.

The property is individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places although its relocation in 2011 likely removed it from the list. However, its new site just two blocks east from the original location is within the historic district so it remains eligible for historic preservation tax credits. It is in the same block as two other historic properties that have been moved and are available for purchase through PNC, the Terry-Taylor House and the Patrick St. Lawrence House.

The property will require a complete rehabilitation including removal of fiber-board wall paneling, water/sewer hook-up, plumbing, electrical and heating/cooling systems along with new kitchen and bathrooms.
