Property History
The Bryan Lavender House is a late Federal-style home and 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 1850’s, the Civil War would disrupt those businesses, and 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.

A rare example in North Carolina of the Charleston-style porch, with two tiered engaged porch with one end enclosed and exterior stair, the Bryan Lavender House is architecturally important for the architectural development of styles from Charleston into Eastern NC. Significant interior architectural details include the three part Federal mantel in the parlor, and two part federal mantel upstairs, faux grained door between the hall and parlor, chair rail, heart pine floors and four and six panel doors, as well as era appropriate hardwood. Significant 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 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.
 
Property Description
The Bryan Lavender House was flooded by Hurricane Florence and the rise of the Trent River. With swift intervention and removal of drywall up to two feet above the water line and careful drying out, the house is ready to be restored to its former glory. Restoration will include all new plumbing, HVAC, and electrical on the first floor. The second story did not flood.

Originally a Hall and Parlor plan, a wing was added to the north side and in the 1950’s 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 house retains original woodwork including chair rail downstairs, original Federal Mantels including a detailed 3 part mantel in the parlor and a two part mantel in the upstairs bedroom, and a faux grained door between the living and dining room. Hardware matches the era of the house. Beautiful heart pine floors throughout the house. Side wing could be used as den or bedroom and is plumbed for a bath. Back porch on this wing features a wall of windows for natural light. Upstairs, two bedrooms are connected by a shared bath.
 
Additional Notes
The Lavender House is located in Pollocksville, a quiet little town of 325 located in the northeast portion of Jones County in North Carolina. Highway 17 runs through the town and provides fast transport to the north and south portions of the state. Largely a farming area, the ground is very fertile and most everything grows. Located on the banks of the Trent River on Highway 17, newly installed walkways provide an ideal location for fishing and other outdoor activities. Just off highway 17, Pollocksville is a short 20 minute drive from the charming and historic town of New Bern, NC.
