Property History
RARE RIVERSIDE LANDMARK! Finely detailed 1825 Federal house with unusual Charleston-style front porch. Adjacent to a riverfront park with a boat ramp and canoe/kayak launch. Close to historic New Bern and the beach!

This elegant home is a dream come true for lovers of early architecture! With its two-tiered engaged porch with one end enclosed and exterior stair, the Bryan Lavender House is a fine example of the Charleston-style porch, seldom seen in North Carolina. The house retains original woodwork throughout, including chair rail downstairs, original Federal mantels (including a detailed three-part mantel in the parlor and another two-part mantel in the upstairs bedroom), a faux-grained door between the living and dining room, beautiful heart pine floors, four- and six-panel doors, and hardware appropriate for the era of the house.

Exterior architectural features include original nine-over-six windows flanking the front door including their original louvered blinds and hardware, and six-over-six windows throughout. A four-light transom caps the front door, and the house has a single concave shoulder chimney. Chamfered posts on the second story of the porch, beaded flush sheathing on the end stair, and the posts, balusters, and shaped banister on the exterior stair are all original.

Originally a hall-and-parlor plan, a wing was added to the north side and in the 1950s a former detached kitchen was brought up to the house but not attached. Instead a small wooden stoop connects the two structures which are barely a few feet apart. The side wing could be used as a den or bedroom and is plumbed for a bath. The back porch on this wing features a wall of windows for natural light. Upstairs there are two bedrooms connected by a shared bath.

Listed on the National Register, the late Federal-style home was built around 1825 for Bryan Lavender, who lived there for approximately 10 years. Locally, the house is known as the Roscoe Barrus House. Barrus owned the home from 1835 until 1870 and was a prominent merchant and pharmaceutical salesman. While Barrus’ business grew and expanded to Baltimore and New York by the mid-1850s, the Civil War would disrupt those businesses with the destruction of his warehouse and all merchandise during the war. Barrus sold all of his holdings in order to repay debts in 1867, including selling his house to his daughter. The house remained in the Barrus family until 1888.
 
Property Description
The Bryan Lavender House, overlooking the banks of the Trent River and only 25 miles from the beaches of the Crystal Coast, is ready to be restored to its former glory. The town has completed a new public boat ramp just a few hundred feet from the house. Although a rare flood due to Hurricane Florence caused water intrusion of approximately six feet in the first floor, with swift intervention and removal of drywall up to two feet above the water line and careful drying out, the house is ready for its next stewards! The rehabilitation work needed includes all new plumbing, HVAC, and electrical on the first floor, along with new kitchen and baths. The second story did not flood and could potentially be occupied during the rehabilitation work. Eligible for historic preservation tax credits.
 
Additional Notes
Pollocksville is a quiet little town of 325 located in the northeast portion of Jones County on the banks of the Trent River. US Highway 17 (known as the Coastal Highway) runs through Pollocksville, providing a short 20-minute drive to the charming and historic town of New Bern and quick access to North Carolina’s beautiful Crystal Coast beaches.

The Bryan Lavender House is just steps from the river, where you can enjoy the new public boat ramp and canoe/kayak launch and park. Newly installed walkways provide an ideal location for fishing and other outdoor activities.

More on Pollocksville:

“What a gorgeous place! I do believe the Town of Pollocksville is one of my favorite spots along Highway 17 in North Carolina – and this new boat ramp and canoe/kayak launch and park that sits along the Trent River is just beautiful.”
