Architectural and Historical Information

This charming two-story frame house with hall-and-parlor floor plan is an architectural gem in Southern Davidson County. Originally built in the early nineteenth century, a later renovation transformed it into a rare North Carolina example of a fashionable mid-nineteenth century picturesque “cottage,” reminiscent of A.J. Downing’s  cottage designs.

The original two-story frame house was built by either Doctor Robert Moore, the original grant holder, or his son Ebenezer, in the late eighteenth century or early nineteenth century. A two-story log addition was built early on. Ebenezer’s son-in-law Burgess Lamar Beall, a prominent physician and politician, transformed the house into a fashionable picturesque villa in the late 1840’s. Among the Federal-style mantels of the early house are the “Downing-esque” cottage features, including latticework porch posts, decorative brackets, floor-length nine-over-nine sash windows, a large bay window off the side wall, and a double-leaf, raised-panel front entry with elaborate sidelights. The side wing was added during the picturesque villa remodeling and also featured latticework. The one-bay wide porch was added in the twentieth century.

The house was moved several yards down the road to a 2.584 acre lot with access to a lovely small pond where the surrounding land on that side of the road will be protected by a conservation easement. The house will require a comprehensive rehabilitation including structural repairs, restoration carpentry, construction of a connection to the rear section of the house, re-installation of the porch and columns, installation of all systems, new bathrooms and kitchen.
