The Glenn-Pender-Moore house has historical significance as one of the handful of late nineteenth century houses surviving in Greenville, as one of the first and now oldest surviving houses in the Skinnerville area of the city, and as a well detailed example of the domestic vernacular italianate style of the 1880s. On its interior, the Glenn-Pender-Moore house has a central hall plan. The serpentine staircase in the front hall has a handsome newel post and ornate turned balusters, unique to the vernacular Italianate design. Original ceiling medallions, 4 panel doors, beautifully restored Italianate mantels on the 6 fireplaces. distinctive window pediments, original heart pine floors spanning 17ft with no joints, and slender Italianate style porch posts adorn the well preserved and neatly detailed piece of history. Updates include- new plumbing, new hvac, new roof, updated electrical, new deck with motorized awning, updated kitchen and bathrooms, insulation in the attic, gutters, new appliances, and tankless water heater. This beautiful home is located on a large, 0.79 acre corner lot, walking distance from Uptown and East Carolina University. Half of the yard is completely fenced in, tastefully landscaped and also allows for off street parking. The other half of the yard is open, with large trees-perfect for a sitting spell. This is a once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of local history.
